Ponderosa Stomp Festival 2015: The Countdown to the Next Musical Blowout Begins (“Uno, dos, one, two, tres, quatro”)

“There are no shortcuts to quality.” — guiding principle of legendary New Orleans culinary institution Hansen’s Sno-Bliz

The 2013 Ponderosa Stomp Festival was our most successful to date! Thank you to everyone who helped to make the amazing 3-day event possible: the participants, musicians, donors, volunteers, staff, sponsors, collaborators, and attendees!


The additional time we had to plan and organize the 2013 festival was a key to our success. To ensure we continue to present the best event possible, we will continue to produce the festival every other year.

An extra year in between festivals will allow us to use our resources as effectively as possible and produce an event worthy of the incredible musicians and artists we celebrate. The next Ponderosa Stomp Festival, then, will take place in the fall of 2015.

Thank you for your continued support of our work, and we hope to see everyone in New Orleans in 2015!

  1. trying to find where and when the boogie kings and gee gee shin are preforming in 2014 and 2015

  2. You can find GG Shinn on Facebook: He posts his gigs there. There are two bands with ties to the old Boogie Kings occasionally performing who can be found on Facebook. One page is run by original Boogie King founder Doug Ardoin. The other is a band called The Boogie All-Stars, which features former BK members.

  3. The Stomp was memorable. Not many times and places you could talk to The Sonics, Swamp Dogg Chris Montez or John Echols. Still, there was a theme that emerged at times: the bands and singers needed just a bit more rehearsal together to match previous Stomps.

    Rock on New Orleans!
