And New Orleans is having a New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. I know because that copy of this weeks Village Voice says so. And so I thought to post this announcement on this blog because hey, it's less writing sometimes in my attempt to maintain content for this blog whenever possible.
And that ad to be found in that weekly seemingly underground aboveground paper in New York with its bold yellow color and drawing of a dancing person made of music says something like "Come Marching In. April 23-25 & April 29-May 2, with performers Simon & Garfunkel, Pearl Jam, Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Lionel Richie, Anita Baker, Allman Brothers Band, My Morning Jacket, The Neville Brothers, Widespread Panic, Darius Rucker, B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Gipsy Kings, The Black Crowes, Band of Horses, Baaba Maal, Average White Band, George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Richie Havens, Rebirth Brass Band, Blues Traveler and a host of other performers and hundreds more, and the list goes on and on. And this event sounds like one impressive line up of a music event. Have a great New Orleans music day.
