Shorty Fest Presented by Acura was an amazing event! Thanks to all who attended for the live show, came to the outdoor block party, bid on auction items, or watched the livestream on Nugs.net. The fundraising event was held Monday, May 2, 2022 at Tipitina’s in New Orleans. Viewers enjoyed performances by Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Dumpstaphunk, Galactic featuring Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. Outdoor performances featured Big Chief Juan Pardo and Mardi Gras Indians, New Orleans Nightcrawlers, Warren Easton High School Marching Band, Abramson Sci Academy Marching Band, and Shorty Foundation Academy Students.
Thank you to generous sponsorship from Acura, The Gia Maione Prima Foundation, Sazerac, Wheatley Vodka, Spire Collection and Cardinale Wines, and Tip-it Foundation.
