Louisana Avenue has made people at Moldejazz go crazy before through a series of concerts in Kikkans Hall. The folk festival from New Orleans has taken root in Molde, and now the band is coming to Alexandra Park under the motto "Here we go! Everyone must come!”
Sweden's best live band throws a party in Alexandraparken!
Louisiana Avenue is the orchestra of joy that, with its contagious energy, takes you to Mardi Gras without flying a meter from Årø International. Regardless of the place and time, they succeed in taking their audience on a musical journey to the sizzling music life of New Orleans, and it is not uncommon for the evening to culminate in a long carnival train! After the success of Molde in 2019, a number of Norwegian festivals have booked the band, and now they are ready to fill Alexandraparken!
This group saves the public everywhere. The charismatic frontman Pär Stenhammar shines when he leads his eight-man band, when it spreads love and madness through both microphone and megaphone. It is clear that Louisiana Avenue will transfer the inclusive party atmosphere of New Orleans to our home latitudes. "Now we're driving. Everyone must come!” As political parties often say; Everyone joins in here!
"Sweden's best live band!" - Anders Pihl, music magazine LIRA.
"I've never seen this type of energy outside the islands I'm from - definitely not in Sweden!" - Wyclef Jean

The music is laid back and warm, smooth but dirty and full of nostalgic glimpses of jazz, r&b and hip hop
