Dave Chappelle is hosting his exclusive and highly regarded JUKE JOINT party in New Orleans tonight. This event will be quite different from his four sold out shows with Chris Tucker at The Saenger this week.
Dave Chappelle’s Juke Joint is an exclusive and carefully curated pop-up show featuring live music, comedy, food, culture, art, and everything in between.
Perfectly unpredictable and as real as Dave Chappelle himself, the event has been described as,
“The Best Party You’ve Never Been To!”
Each JUKE JOINT is unique; however, the New Orleans rendition will be a “band-vs-DJ sound clash that blurs all musical lines”. Harmonicist Frédéric Yonnet, backed by The Band with No Name, will take on legendary hip-hop DJ D-Nice. While the lucky few who have grabbed their tickets to this sold out event are in for a very special and rare treat, the rest of us might be able to gain a glimpse into the night through the lens of DJ D-Nice’s photography, since this is a no cell phone event.
Dave Chappelle has also been enjoying the local music of New Orleans. Earlier this week Dave and rapper TI were spotted jamming with local musicians on the patio of Rare Form. Peep some of the footage from Frederic Yonnet’s instagram below
