Charles Brown Music Festival

Charles BrownThe City of Texas City, in conjunction with the Texas City Cultural Arts Foundation, is pleased to announce The Charles Brown Music Festival, an event honoring Texas City native, Charles Brown (September 13, 1922-January 21, 1999). The late great pianist has been heralded as one of the most influential Blues artists of the 20th century. Some of his achievements include The National Endowment for the Arts Heritage Fellowship Award, a W.C. Handy Award, and being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Festival will feature entertainment by Sparky’s Jazz Express; the Zydeco Dots, voted best Zydeco band at The Houston Press Music Awards; Blind Pig recording artist and local favorite Hamilton Loomis. Coming in from the Crescent City with a healthy dose of New Orleans funk will be Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentlemen. And, last but not least, from Crowley, Louisiana, serving up a hearty gumbo of Rock, Cajun, and Rhythm & Blues, will be “Le Boss,” Wayne Toups and his band Zydecajun.

In addition to the musical entertainment, there will be arts and crafts, concessions, and a children’s area.

The festival takes place Saturday, October 25, at Nessler Park (9th Avenue North @ 21st Street) from 2:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
