Great music and venue! Very poor bar efficiency - took an excessive amount of time to get drinks. Managing the bar system better could improve sales dramatically and bring people back.

We arrived early so we had no problems finding seats in the back beach area. The food was reasonably priced: fish tacos $8. Drinks were typical city prices: $8 for beer, $15 for cocktails. We had to go under the tent up front to hear the music....continued

The music was great, stayed only for the first 2 bands and felt like I was in NOLA again. Great location too (beekman beer garden) but the drink prices were outrageous! $8 for draft beer, ok, I can deal with that, it's NY but $13 for a tiny cup of...continued

For four decades, *Little Feat *has been billed as one of the best live rock n’ roll bands ever. They also remain one of the most active. Little Feat is Paul Barrere, guitar and vocals; Bill Payne, keyboards and vocals; Fred Tackett, guitar/mandolin/trumpet and vocals; Richie Hayward, drums and vocals; Kenny Gradney, bass; and Sam Clayton, congas and vocals. Since the band was formed by Lowell George in 1969, Little Feat has always has been well received by fans and critics. The band’s lasting appeal among fellow musicians – both individually and collectively – also is unmistakable. They are pros’ pros and have collaborated with icons such as Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Plant, and John Lee Hooker. They also have toured or worked on albums individually with the Doobie Brothers, Pink Floyd, the Allman Brothers and Ringo Starr.

Booty shaking party music best sums up the inimitable *Papa Grows Funk, *one of the most successful funk bands to emanate from New Orleans. Rooted in improvisation, the group of all-star musicians led by Hammond B3 keyboardist and lead vocalist, John Gros, has built its enthusiastic vibe on a long-standing musical tradition that dates back to the hot jazz of the legends, Fats Domino and Louis Armstrong. Like Dr. John and the Neville Brothers, Papa Grows Funk keeps that New Orleans lineage alive while always funkifying towards the future.

With no play lists and no rehearsals every Papa Grows Funk performance is its own masterpiece of funk. On any given night, the band might change songs or grooves. But one thing is certain: whether it is jam band college kids or seersucker wearing professionals, five folks or 100,000, after John Gros announces “We’re Papa Grows Funk from the great city of New Orleans,” the crowd is going to go wild.

DJ Cochon de Lait will be spinning the funky tunes of New Orleans in between sets.
