Eagle Rock Entertainment and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation have partnered for a new fundraising effort

The organizations have teamed up to present the new documentary Up From The StreetsNew Orleans — The City of Music.  “Tickets” to watch the documentary are available at a price of $12 each, and can be purchased from viewers’ local theaters to watch the documentary in the comfort of their own homes.  Proceeds from the “ticket” sales will go to benefit the fund, which assists musicians who live and work in New Orleans who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Tickets are available here.  More than 50 theaters nationwide are taking part in the effort.  Ticket orders are good for seven days.  Viewers will have three days to finish the documentary once they have started watching.

Up From The StreetsNew Orleans — The City of Music originally debuted in October at the 30th annual New Orleans Film Festival.  It examines the city’s musical roots.  Oscar-nominated and six-time Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Terence Blanchard serves as the documentary’s host.  The program features archived footage from performances and interviews conducted by artists, such as Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino and Alen Toussaint among others to help tell the story of the city’s musical history.  Michael Murphy directed and produced the presentation.

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation is a nonprofit organization that owns the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell.  The agency has created the Jazz & Heritage Music Relief Fund to assist musicians and residents in New Orleans who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
