Reach Out Nola has teamed up with the Historic Carver Theater and 14 Parishes Restaurant to initiate the restoration of social connections among the residents of the Treme’ with the inception of the Inaugural Treme Experience. The purpose of The Treme Experience is to bring the residents of the community together to celebrate its culture and ignite a spirit of ownership. The neighborhood is currently being lifted from its roots and if the community residents don’t have a voice, it will lose its historical flavor and indigenous culture. All benefits of this event will help Reach Out NOLA in its pursuit to build a community garden and fund projects to educate Treme residents about the commercial and residential changes that will impact their livelihoods. THIS IS A FREE EVENT!

American Trombone player, vocalist, composer and arranger David L. Harris Jr. embodies the edge of modern jazz and the sultriness of blues. Every time he steps on stage, David takes us on the emotionally engaging journey of love and liberation, wrapped in a sound that embraces the groove, grit and swing of the past. Growing up in a neighborhood called Scotlandville, in Baton Rouge, La, David L. found his fingers pressed against the sliding brace of the trombone at the age of sixteen and has never let go since. Music lovers have stepped and grooved to the sound of his trombone at some of the liveliest jazz festivals in the world, like The Newport Jazz Festival, The Montreal Jazz Festival, and The New Orleans & Heritage Jazz Festival . David L. has graced legendary concert halls, such as the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY, The Lincoln Center in New York, NY, and The L'Olympia Music Hall in Paris, France; and has played beside some of the most astonishingly talented bands and vocalist like Dee Dee Bridgewater, Wynton Marsalis, Shannon Powell, Aaron Neville, Delfeayo Marsalis, Dr. Michael White, and The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. "From my trombone, I speak of all that my ancestors have spoken and all that is to come."

This is a pop up one-of-a-kind Film + Music + Food Experience brought to you by Unbuntu Village, Hot 103.7, Fusicology and  FunkJazz Kafé Arts & Music Festival!


About The Film:
Narrated by Chuck D, this award-winning film is the story of a cultural legend as told by the innovators of an important, and in some cases overlooked, era in Black culture. It begins with a statement that says a lot, “You will always know the condition of a people by what is reflected in their music!” then proceeds to span through the late 1980′s to the early 2000′s.  This story goes deep into the fabric of soul music, it’s definitions, it’s pioneers, it’s offspring, it’s movements, the challenges with the “mainstream” industry, how technology leveled the playing field and the evolution of the FunkJazz Kafé Arts & Music Festival, a music and artistic renaissance movement born out of Atlanta’s diverse musical and cultural arts heritage. The film covers the decade when Atlanta’s underground music scene became established on the world stage and a new generation of soul singers and musicians emerged. "FunkJazz Kafé:Diary Of A Decade (The Story Of A Movement)" also explores the question of how we got to live soul bands being non-existing in the commercial music landscape of the 21st century when there once was a plethora of soul and R&B bands since the creation of recorded music.

"FunkJazz Kafé:Diary Of A Decade (The Story Of A Movement)" features appearances by: Cornel West, Dick Gregory, Erykah Badu, Cee Lo Green, Andre 3000, Jill Scott, Common, Roy Ayers, Jamie Foxx, George Clinton, Janelle Monae, Doug E. Fresh, Talib Kweli, Meshell NdegeOcello, Raphael Saadiq, Caron Wheeler (Soul II Soul), Larry Mizell (Mizell Bros.), Joi Gilliam, Dallas Austin, Lil John Roberts, Goodie Mob, Omar Lye-Fook, MC Lyte,   Jamal Ahmad, Anthony David, Ray Murray (Organized Noize), N’Dea Davenport (Brand New Heavies), Algebra Blessett, LeRonde Williams, Kevin Powell, Loose Ends, Bilal, Dionne Farris, Van Hunt, Khari Simmons, Eric Roberson, Donnie, Bone Crusher, Sticman (Dead Prez), DJ Kemit and Speech (Arrested Development).
