Saturday at 11:30am in conjunction with the Italian American Sports Banquet we are dedicating the first of two Sicilian Heritage Markers. This marker celebrates Sicilian contributions to Music in Jazz, Swing, and Rock 'n Roll. It mentions Nick LaRocca, Louis Prima, and Cosimo Matassa. 

It contains a QR link to  a free tour app of Sicilian Heritage in the French Quarter with educational videos hosted on a You Tube Channel. Afterwards consider dining at Italian Barrel on Decatur. Learn more about the activities of the 20 Italian clubs of Louisiana at http://www.SicilyJournal.com
