Omni Royal Hosts Sold Out Satchmo Kickoff Party
The Satchmo SummerFest Kickoff party is sold out this year.
Since 2015, Omni Royal Orleans has hosted the Satchmo SummerFest kickoff party. The party has become “more popular in recent years; though we did sell out in 2017, we sold out faster this year,” stated Rebecca Sell, Marketing and Communications Manager for French Quarter Festivals, Inc.
This Thursday, approximately 360 people will gather at the Omni Royal to hear music by John Boutte. The event will honor the Spirit of Satchmo Award recipients Bethany Bultman, Ellis Marsalis, and Ashlin Parker.
The 17th annual Satchmo Summer Fest presented by Chevron will follow the event August 3rd, 4th, and 5th at the Old US Mint.
