Lawyers rocked the night away at The Howlin’ Wolf as part of the 5th Annual Legalpalooza on Saturday, June 15th. A charity rock concert, Legalpalooza raises money for Southeast Louisiana Legal Services (SLLS), a nonprofit corporation that serves individuals and families who, without legal assistance, would lose a critical human need – food, shelter, income, medical care, personal safety or parental care. This year’s performances included the Soul Practitioners, N’Awlins Johnnys, and the Levee Dawgs. All these bands include one or more local lawyers. To see who played, click here. Grammy winning jazz trumpeter and band leader, Irvin Mayfield amazed the crowds when he joined the Soul Practitioners for several songs.
In addition to live music featuring prominent members of the bar, this year’s concert provided a great opportunity for local attorneys and members of the judiciary to meet and mingle. Several law firms supported this event by serving as Local Legend Sponsors. They included: Adams and Reese; Hingel Law Firm; Irwin Fritchie; Jones Walker; Krebs, Farley & Pelleteri; Leake & Andersson; Phelps Dunbar.
