Steamboat Stomp Jazz Festival – Watch for dates in 2018!

Jazz is arguably America's proudest original art form. Music scholars and laypersons alike recognize New Orleans as its birthplace. Yet few people know the critical role that Mississippi River steamboats played in spreading jazz throughout the country and popularizing artists like Louis Armstrong and Fate Marable.With the addition of a new boat in 2018, this 4 year old festival will take that 2017 off and look at making Steamboat Stomp a very special event the following year.

With its focus on traditional jazz and its unique venue, Steamboat Stomp offers a truly special experience whether you're an aficionado or newcomer to the world of jazz.
