Jazz Fest, ya'll

An afternoon at Jazz Fest was just what we needed after a funeral earlier in the day.Amanda Shaw
Tab Benoit

The videos aren't long, if you'd like a little listen. I wish I could also give you a little taste of the crawfish bisque and creole cream cheesecake with strawberries. Yum. The margarita was pretty good, too. (why they are not selling hurricanes is beyond me, but at least I had an extra strong one last weekend at the French Quarter Festival)

Tab Benoit, his mom (on the dual tamborines) and someone I don't know... but she sure knows how to use a tambourine!! Maybe I should try that in church this Sunday.

Rockin' Dopsie Jr. on the washboard. Because it is not Jazz Fest until someone plays the washboard. (And the accordian. And no way can you get out of here without a trombone, and even if you could, why would you want to?)

Here's your token trombone, and it doesn't get any better than Craig Klein with The New Orleans Nightcrawlers. A band I saw and loved at my first fest 4 years ago. Those of you who won my NOLA music CD giveaway last Mardi Gras will recognize this song, Can of Worms.

Tab and Rockin' Dopsie, Jr. together. Because they did.

(I regret that I did not get video of Amanda Shaw's Devil Went Down to Georgia)

OK, now that looks like fun!

How cool! I'm so glad that you take advantage of living in the awesome place that you do... I feel so often folks get caught up in daily life and don't take a look around and enjoy their surroundings. I'm glad you aren't that type of folks :)
