The 4th annual Ponderosa Stomp is scheduled smack in the middle of the New Orleans Jazz Festival on April 26 - 27. It will take place at the Mid City Rock'n'Bowl, where bands play alongside 18 bowling lanes and a slew of dancing concert-goers.

The Stomp will feature and impressive line-up of songwriters and musicians from years past. Scheduled to appear are performers like Scotty Moore, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Nokie Edwards (of the Ventures), Archie Bell, Link Wray, Betty Harris, Lonnie Brooks as Guitar Jr., Nathaniel Mayer, Mando and The Chili Peppers, Johnny Farina (of Santo & Johnny), Blowfly, Eddie Bo, Arch Hall, Jr., Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater, and many others.

Tickets sell for $35 per night through the festival's web site, www.ponderosastomp.com.
