Ponderosa Stomp 2011 Details

.
(WPR) On September 16th and 17th, the Ponderosa Stomp takes over a new venue, the Howlin' Wolf while moving the music conference, film festival and record hop into a central locale, the Renaissance Arts Hotel.

2011 marks the 10th anniversary of the Ponderosa Stomp, which has expanded over the years from a 2-day concert to include a film festival, music conference, record hop and a DJ dance party.

This milestone year will be hailed with tributes to the essential New Orleans producer Cosimo Matassa, Stax Records, Excello Records and Southern music with Allen Toussaint, William Bell, Big Jay McNeely, Eddie Floyd, Lady Bo, Sir Mack Rice, Lazy Lester, Dave Bartholomew, The Bo-Keys w/ Skip Pitts and Howard Grimes, Carol Fran, Classie Ballou, Warren Storm, The Relatives and more.

Celebrating the seminal songs that formed the backbone of American pop culture from the post-war era through the generations is not for the meek of heart founder Dr Ira (Dr. Ike) Padnos and his fellow members of the Mystic Knights of the Mau Mau specialize in finding performers missing from the stage for decades as well as reuniting the bands who've not performed together in decades. The New York Times described it thusly, "Among other things, the Stomp is a gathering of survivors: musicians who have been picking, pounding and wailing professionally for many decades, and whose gray hair and career setbacks haven't tamed their music yet."
