About Jamie Galloway: James ‘Jamie’ Galloway III, a beloved Oak Street musician and chef, was 41 when he passed away in 2012. Originally from Alexandria, Galloway made his life in New Orleans providing his friends and fans with two staples of assured happiness: good food and good music. A fiber in the fabric of the local music scene for over two decades, Jamie played alongside Dave Jordan, festival music director, in the band Juice, providing harmonica, percussion and vocals. In addition to live music, the festival honors Jamie’s love of shared food via its tasty crawfish boil. As was Jamie, the New Orleans Musicians Clinic is an integral part of the city’s music culture, so it is fitting that through this event they are forever linked.
