NOCCA: Home For the Holidays featuring Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Kermit Ruffins, Soul Rebels, James Andrews, Anders Osborne, Sasha Masakowski, and emcee Gralen Banks

The NOCCA Foundation, The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, and the family of Daniel Price invite you to Home for the Holidays on December 22, 2021. This year's event will once again be in-person at its traditional home, the New Orleans House of Blues, located at 225 Decatur Street. 

Home for the Holidays is a night of spectacular art and music benefiting the Daniel Price Memorial Fund for Aspiring Artists, which honors the memory of NOCCA alum Daniel Price (Visual Arts, 1993). The fund was established following Daniel's death at the age of 28 while protecting his wife from an assailant. Daniel's fund is part of the NOCCA Foundation's Student Success Program, which provides NOCCA's young artists with year-round support for training, supplies, and college scholarships.

Patron Party: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Home for the Holidays kicks off with a patron party from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Gold- and Silver-level patrons will be treated to back-to-back performances by two New Orleans legends: Irma Thomas & and John Boutte! As a special perk, our 80 Gold-level patrons will receive reserved seating in the House of Blues loge, which offers an unobstructed view of the stage.

Both Gold and Silver patrons will enjoy a buffet dinner, open bars upstairs and down, as well as a fabulous silent auction featuring artwork by Daniel Price Award recipients. Patrons will also have access to the Parish Room, where there will be an open bar from 8pm until the end of the Home for the Holidays concert. 

Patron tickets are $148 for Silver-level and $290 for Gold-level. Please note that Gold tickets typically sell out, so please buy early!

Gold tickets are sold directly through the NOCCA Foundation. To purchase Gold-level tickets please visit or call Sharyn Booker at 504-940-2914.
