WHAT IS A RENT PARTY?
Rent parties originated in 1920s Harlem to raise money for musicians as a means to pay the rent. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation and support its mission to promote, preserve and advance Baton Rouge blues culture. The inaugural Rent Party was held before the 2013 Baton Rouge Blues Festival. A truly can't miss experience, unexpected collaborations and impromptu sets are typical, pairing up-and-coming performers with swamp blues legends.
