From Professor Longhair to Big Freedia, 'Save Tip's' benefit features a New Orleans who's who

To get a sense of how important Tipitina’s is to musicians from New Orleans and beyond, consider the roster for “Save Tip’s,” the free, livestreamed, three-plus-hour benefit airing at 8 p.m. Saturday via tipitinas.com.

The roster of dozens of performers, featured in either archival clips or newly recorded performances, includes Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Willie Nelson, Dr. John, Wilco, Widespread Panic, the Revivalists, the Funky Meters, Michael Franti & Spearhead and St. Paul & the Broken Bones.

The show also features Galactic, whose members own the club, as well as Tank & the Bangas, Big Freedia, Juvenile, Dumpstaphunk, Samantha Fish, Anders Osborne and a host of other local favorites.

Sprinkled throughout the music roster are special collaborations, such as Gregg Allman performing with the Radiators, Allen Toussaint sitting in with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Jon Batiste & Stay Human with special guest Trombone Shorty.

Other goodies will be interspersed throughout the program. All in all, it promises to be a celebratory overload of New Orleans music, all the while raising money to help keep the lights on at one of the city’s most important clubs during the coronavirus pandemic.

Fans can donate for a chance to win a variety of virtual and in-real-life experiences offered through Fandiem, a digital sweepstakes marketplace.

The “Save Tip’s” benefit is part of the second season of “Tipitina’s TV,” the club’s weekly web-streaming performance series. Unlike other episodes of “Tipitina’s TV,” this Saturday’s “Save Tip’s” benefit is free to watch.

Donations can be made by texting "savetips" to 24365.

Two of the best clubs in the entire southern part of the U.S. Thanks for the heads up. I could use a little second line insanity. Anders Osborne is the shizzle!
