There’s no bigger musical institution in New Orleans than the locally bred radio station WWOZ 90.7. Since 1980, WWOZ has been the mainline to Nola music and culture. Celebrating New Orleans with each and every tune that flows through the air, WWOZ is a community run and driven radio station that is listener supported from across the world.

This past week, “The Guardians of the Groove” put on their annual “Piano Night” in support of the radio station. Hosted out the House of Blues, this year celebrated and honored Jazz Legend & Nola Institution, Ellis Marsalis. The always enthralling event also hosted some of New Orleans’ most notable musicians including our favorites from the night : Terrance Simien, Jon Cleary, and of course Mr. Ellis himself. We were so thrilled to be able to capture some of the moments from such a stellar night. Check out our favorite images included in the photos below.
