Ponderosa Stomp

Thursday, October 03, 2013 - Saturday, October 05, 2013

Details

Founded at the turn of the century (the 21st century, that is) by New Orleans anesthesiologist and avid record collector Ira "Dr. Ike" Padnos, this American roots festival dedicates itself to recognizing the architects of rock 'n' roll, blues, jazz, country, swamp pop, reggae and soul. Performers from a bygone era return to the spotlight with two concerts at Rock 'n' Bowl (3000 S Carrollton Avenue), as well as a two-day music history conference and vinyl record show at the Wyndham Hotel (701 Convention Center Boulevard). The line-up includes Chris Montez ("Let's Dance," "The More I See You," "Call Me" and "There Will Never Be Another You"), Maxine Brown ("All in My Mind" and "Funny"), and The Standells ("Dirty Water" and "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White"), as well as many other talented artists.

The conference runs October 3—4; $20 a day. Concerts on October 4—5. Vinyl record show October 3—5; $5 a day. For full line-up and other festival information, visit ponderosastomp.com.
