The historic Dew Drop Social & Benevolent Jazz Hall in Old Mandeville announces dates for its fall 2019 concert series. Concerts will be held September 14 and 28, October 12 and 26, November 9 and 23, and December 7, a Christmas and holiday-themed show.
Produced by the non-profit Friends of the Dew Drop, shows are on Saturday nights from 6:30 to 9:00 pm unless otherwise announced.
Admission for each concert is $10 at the door. Friends of the Dew Drop members will maintain a beverage center for a nominal fee and offer souvenir Dew Drop merchandise. The members of the First Free Mission Baptist Church next door will offer hearty, home-cooked meals for a nominal fee.
Owned by the City of Mandeville, the Dew Drop is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is managed by the non-profit Friends of the Dew Drop who all volunteer to bring music to the historic site and preserve and protect it. It also manages an outreach program called Dew Drop JazzKids wherein local jazz musicians conduct programs on jazz music for elementary school students in St. Tammany Parish.
