Put on your dancing shoes and appetite for this weekend’s Crescent City ThrowDown, the Hurricane Katrina benefit for New Orleans musicians. Louisiana musical favorites Beausoleil and the SubDudes will play while Chef de Cuisine Chris Wilson of Emeril’s New Orleans cooks in appreciation of the music and culture of the Crescent City.
Chef Wilson will prepare Emeril’s signature New Orleans Style Barbecued Shrimp, Crabmeat Remoulade, Seafood & Andouille Sausage Gumbo and Bananas Foster Bread Pudding with Anglaise Sauce.
Proceeds of the event will go directly to The Preservation Hall “Do You Know What it Means” Foundation and Tipitina’s Artist Relief Foundation. Both foundations have set up special chapters specifically designed to assist New Orleans-based musicians/music industry workers in the wake of Katrina.
