About the Ponderosa Stomp Foundation

The Ponderosa Stomp Foundation (PSF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating the legacy, revitalizing the careers and preserving the history of the architects of American music. The music of the blues, soul, rockabilly, swamp pop, funk and New Orleans R&B, are the building blocks of rock and roll, hip-hop and other contemporary music forms. Many of us sing along to songs, made popular by musicians as varied as Elvis Presley, Fats Domino, the Rolling Stones, the Ramones, and the Velvet Underground. But, sometimes the most unforgettable parts of a song come from the behind the scenes architects, not the face on the album cover. Yet, these musicians aren’t always recognized for their contributions to contemporary popular culture.

With many of these unsung heroes aging, it is essential to honor and capture their pioneering cultural contributions for generations to come. The Ponderosa Stomp Foundation achieves its mission through the presentation of unique and varied programming, ranging from music education initiatives in public schools and museums to an oral history project to the signature annual concert event, The Ponderosa Stomp. The Foundation is a 501(c) (3), not-for-profit educational organization. Since its inception in 2001, we have put on over 70 shows employing more than 500 musical legends and given a forgotten generation of musicians a platform to perform - and reeducate - the public about their pioneering cultural contributions.

The Ponderosa Stomp relies on donor support to continue its work. To make a secure online donation, visit: www.PonderosaStompFoundation.org, or mail a contribution to: The Ponderosa Stomp Foundation 828 Royal Street #830 New Orleans, LA 70116.

The Ponderosa Stomp 2009 is made possible with the generous support of the House of Blues New Orleans, New Orleans Fine Hotels, Yee-Haw Industries, The Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Bent Media.
