Irvin Mayfield opens new club in N.O.
The Irvin Mayfield I Club, a collaboration between the legendary jazz musician and JW Marriott Hotel New Orleans, will soon provide a new venue for music fans in the New Orleans area.
Scheduled to open in July, the club will feature live music Wednesday through Sunday nights each week.
This will be the second venue to fall under the Mayfield Productions hospitality division, joining the Jazz Playhouse in the Royal Sonesta Hotel on Bourbon Street.
Dubbed as an “upscale, luxurious destination that delivers true New Orleans music,” the 120-person capacity venue will be a two-level nightclub and artists will span genres of blues, zydeco, gospel, funk and DJs among the scheduled performances. The Grammy award winning trumpeter, composer and arranger will help program the content and marketing for the new club.
In a release, Mayfield shared his excitement for the new project. “It is my vision that the Irvin Mayfield I Club, will create a successful and upscale music club model for New Orleans music that will grow and thrive beyond our borders for years to come.”
