New Orleans Multicultural Tourism Network Launches the “New” 2021 Festival Season at House of Blues August 19th NOMTN Brings Back Signature Programming – “NOLA Music Showcase”
New Orleans—The New Orleans Multicultural Tourism Network launches the “new” 2021 Festival Season with a reprise of the popular New Orleans Music Showcase (NOMS) to shine the light on local musicians. Launched in 2019, NOMS attracted over 60 submissions with the top four winners performing live at the 2019 Essence Festival, the first NOMS generated intense energy and competition among local musicians.
“We know that the art and music community and our tourism industry has suffered mightily during this pandemic. Bringing back one of NOMTN’s most successful programs that provides two necessary components – a local venue for musicians to work again and an event for visitors to reacquaint themselves with the dynamic local music scene,” Oscar Rainey, Chairman, NOMTN board said. It is our mission and great privilege to present this New Orleans celebration of purpose and resiliency,” Rainey added.
To kick-off programming following the pandemic, NOMTN will again feature performances by the 2019 Music Showcase with the goal of giving voice to the local musical talent among festival/event producers, and the broader tourism and hospitality industry. The showcase was cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic.
Among those expected to perform at the House of Blues on Thursday, August 19, 2021, are:
