The NOCCA Institute, The New Orleans Advocate, and the family of Daniel Price invite you to Home for the Holidays at House of Blues New Orleans, 225 Decatur Street, on Thursday, December 22, 2016.

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 alumnus Daniel Price. In keeping with Daniel’s twin passions of art and music, the Fund provides scholarships for outstanding visual arts and music students at NOCCA.


Home for the Holidays kicks off with a patron party from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. Both Silver- and Gold-level patrons will be treated to a concert by the legendary Irma Thomas in the concert hall. As a special perk, our 75 Gold-level patrons will receive reserved seating in the House of Blues loge, which offers an unobstructed view of the stage.

All patrons will have access to the Parish Room, where there will be an open bar all night long. The Parish is the perfect place to store any purchases from the silent auction, which will feature priceless artwork donated by Daniel Price Award recipients. Patrons will also be welcome in the Foundation Room, where Jonathon Ronniger will perform at 9:00pm.

On the main floor of the concert hall, there will be a patron buffet from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. The buffet will feature holiday treats made by NOCCA’s Culinary Arts students.

Gold-level patrons enter through Big Mama’s Lounge at 6:00pm. Silver-level patrons enter through Foundation Room, beginning at 6:30. Patron tickets are $145 for Silver-level and $195 for Gold-level. Please see below for ticket information.


The party continues from 8:00pm – midnight with the official Home for the Holidays concert, featuring performances by Trombone Shorty and Friends, John Boutte, Kermit Ruffins and the BBQ Swingers, Big Sam, Khris Royal, Robin Barnes, Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs, Herlin Riley, James Andrews, Stanton Moore Trio, David Torkanowsky, James Singleton, Cyril Neville, and emcee Gralen Banks.

General admission tickets to the concert are $45. House of Blues will sell “fest food” all night long in the main hall to keep guests fueled up! The general admission entrance is located by the House of Blues restaurant and bar. Doors open at 8:00pm.
