Ponderosa Stomp Festival 2013

The names of its headlining acts may not look familiar to modern music lovers up on the latest Pitchfork darlings or top 40 hitmakers, but the Ponderosa Stomp Festival only recruits the best-of-the-best. Each year, the New Orleans event celebrates classic jazz, rock n’ roll and soul music artists. Many, like Chris Clark, the first white soul singer to sign with Motown Records, rarely perform in public anymore. Other Ponderosa Stomp 2013 draws include dynamo duo Baby Washington and Maxine Brown, as well as Boogaloo and ’60s innovators (who many consider the “Godfathers of Punk Rock”) The Standells.

Compared with 2011′s lengthy lineup (the festival went on hiatus in 2012), this year’s list of featured acts is, so far, looking pretty light. Only 20 names have been confirmed, quite a far cry (or howl) from 2011′s 261 musicians. We’re hoping this means the event’s most recent lineup announcement was merely its first, round one of what shapes up to be 20 or so piecemeal press releases. We’ll have all the updates once Ponderosa Stomp – hopefully! – announces them, but in the meantime, feel free to take a look at the talents who have signed up, through the list of 2011 artists, and at a few past performer videos. Tickets have yet to go on sale, but be sure to check back here once discount links become available!
