FIYA FEST is an annual music, food and arts function for charity, benefitting The Roots of Music Program. This year’s event will be held on Friday, May 3 rd at Mardi Gras World (East Bank) sitting on the Mississippi River. Fiyawerx Productions was founded by event producers and New Orleans natives, Chris Rogers and Ryan Shapiro. The festival showcases popular and established musical artists, as well as emerging artists and reunited groups. Please see the attached document with a complete list of all the artists participating in this great party for a purpose. The Roots of Music is a free after school music program founded and organized by Grammy award winning Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band and Allison Reinhardt. The Roots of Music’s mission is to support, teach and protect at-risk youth through music education, academic tutoring and mentorship while preserving and promoting New Orleans’ great musical heritage. This program literally saves lives. The Roots of Music was just awarded StubHub’s 2013 Rising Star Award, marched in the Rose Parade and also received national recognition from multiple broadcasting companies, corporations and private organizations. FIYAWERX PRODUCTIONS is currently seeking sponsors for this year’s FIYA FEST to help us support this worthwhile charity through our event. All proceeds go to The Roots of Music.. Sponsor’s recognition will be advertised on widespread social media networks, websites affiliated with the music industry and all on-site productions of the season.
