Bywater music festival Chaz Fest will return in 2017 for its 11th almost-annual event, despite a cancelation scare last year
. New Orleans rock 'n' roll band Supagroup — which played its first show in more than four years last December — is scheduled to headline. The day-long festival returns noon-10 p.m. Wednesday, May 3 (between Jazz Fest weekends, as per tradition).
Other performers include festival namesake Washboard Chaz Blues Trio, Valparaiso Men's Chorus, Shotgun Jazz Band, Lyrical Cock and Kuwaisiana. More artists and a schedule and food vendors will be announced at a later date. Tickets are $30 in advance
, $35 at the door.
