Right in the heart of New Orleans’ Central Business District, throughout the month of April you will find this free music series. Proceeds from food and drink sales benefit the Young Leadership Council’s community service projects, designed not only to improve the quality of life in the Greater New Orleans area but also to foster leadership skills in young professionals. The musicians scheduled for the month of April include Irma Thomas with Johnny Sansone, Eric Lindell with Deltaphonic, Kermit Ruffins with Space & Harmony, and Marc Broussard with The Iceman Special. The concert series, which runs from 5-8 p.m., is free, but vendor booths offer food, drinks, and art for sale.
