The New Orleans Bad Ass Bitch Experience (N.O.B.A.B.E.) took over the stage at the legendary Preservation Hall of New Orleans on Sunday, June 10, 2018.
The collective, founded for this year’s Bayou Boogaloo with the help of the Positive Vibrations Foundation, features 16 local female musicians. The Boogaloo performance being rained out, the group led by singer Cole Williams got a second chance to perform their all-original music at Pres Hall.
The N.O.B.A.B.E. features the talents of Arsene DeLay, Daria Dzurik, Emily Fredrickson, Hannah Kreiger-Benson, Lori LaPatka, Ainsley Matich, Alison McConnell, Margie Perez, Catie Rodgers, Ashley Shabankareh, Amy Trail, Boyanna Trayanova, Cole Williams, Kathryn Rose Wood, Jessica Wright and Jamie Lynn Vessels.
