So much more than concert event, and so much more exciting than the typical fundraiser, WWOZ's annual Piano Night has become a tradition in a city with a collection of well-loved traditions. On this special night each year, WWOZ 90.7 FM gives back to their loyal supporters by bringing some of New Orleans’ greats to a big stage for a jam packed, stellar off-site Jazz Fest event.

Piano Night offers attendees five solid hours of uninterrupted music. This year's performances include the great Ellis Marsalis, in addition to Jon Cleary, John Gros, Nigel Hall, David Todd Paquette, Terrance Simien Trio featuring Danny Williams, and Yoshitaka “Z2" Tsuji. More performers will be announced soon.

The 2014 annual Piano Night is scheduled for Monday, April 28 at the House of Blues New Orleans.
