Celebrate the spirit of the South with this high-energy marriage of food and music, and experience the magic that is Gumbo Jam.
A lot goes into the making of a good gumbo, from the long hours spent simmering the roux to the 10+ ingredients to mix together. But to do things right, you've got to throw in a whole lot of love, energy, and music to make it taste its best. That's what the Gumbo Jam is all about.
1300 On Fillmore is one of the city's premier upscale Southern restaurants, and its classy supperclub ambiance make it the perfect spot for this celebration of creole flavors (both culinary and musical). Chef David Lawrence creates classics with a modern twist that harmonize with the spot's live jazz repertoire (if you don't believe us, feast your eyes on the Gumbo Jam's 4-course menu, below). For this special night, Joey Altman and the Soul Peppers invite you to join in as they make gumbo on stage while playing New Orleans jazz, classic hits and R&B -- whatever goes best with the ingredient they're mixing in.
