“The parade and the Meet Me on Bourbon Street party provide the community with two fun events on the same night with fantastic Mardi Gras synergy,” said Jazz in June president Michael Lewchuk. “Meet Me on Bourbon Street embodies the same fun, relaxed environment as Jazz in June’s concerts, so those who attend will not be disappointed."
Shevaun Williams & Associates, Transcript Press and Republic Bank & Trust are “Meet Me” sponsors.
Since its founding by the Norman Arts and Humanities Council and the Cimarron Circuit Opera Company in 1984 to bring high-quality blues and jazz acts to Norman, Jazz in June has evolved into a much-anticipated annual event attended by more than 50,000 people. Past performers include David Sanborn, Larry Coryell, Duke Ellington Small Band, Chuck Mangione, T.S. Monk III, Paquito D’Rivera, Ellis Marsalis Quartet, Watermelon Slim, Poncho Sanchez, Carolyn Wonderland, The Rounders, Miss Blues & the Blue Notes, and Riverboat Jazz Kings.
