SLIDELL – If the initial public event for the first annual Camellia City Smooth Jazz Festival is any indication, then the idea to make Slidell “the smooth jazz festival center” could very well be on its way for founders Wil and Diane Bias.

The Slidell couple decided over a year ago that they were going to bring a top-notch “smooth jazz” festival to the eastern side of St. Tammany Parish, and on Sunday they hosted a launch party of supporters for the first event set for Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017 on the grounds of the Northshore Harbor Center.  <Read More...>

The "Northshore 985 Dance Party," promoted as a dance for "older adults," will bring monthly Friday night entertainment to Slidell. The first dance is scheduled for Friday (March 28) at 7 p.m. at the Northshore Harbor Center, located at 100 Harbor Center Blvd., Slidell.

I met a very interesting fellow who gave me some interesting news when I was out at the East St. Tammany Chamber Cultural Economy luncheon.

Wil Bias, and his wife Diane, have already scheduled the first annual Camellia City Smooth Jazz Fest for Slidell next year on Oct. 7, 2017, to be held at the Northshore Harbor Center.
