Now that we know who's coming, I'll show you my top 10 list, if you show me yours, OK? I most want to see:


Aerosmith, because they're blues-metal monsters and I've never seen them in person.

Aretha: living legend, right?

David Byrne, because I did so enjoy the 1980s. I did.

Big Freedia, because I never ever miss Big Freedia.

Boyfriend, because I can't wait to see how her bawdy burlesque thing goes over with Jazz Fest crowd. Should be hoot.

Tank and the Bangas, because there's no better band anywhere.

Doug Kershaw, because he's so good live and, who knows, maybe we'll do a little dancing in the mud.

The Revivalists, because I can't hear "Bullet Proof Vest" often enough, ever. It's like a sickness.

Blind Boys of Alabama, because I've never heard them live.

Aaron Neville, because I haven't heard him live in a few years, which is too long not to hear Aaron Neville live.

Jerry Lee Lewis doing Fats Domino, 'cause that's what you call history.

I know. That's 11. I cheated. Sue me.


We'll provide the day-by-day schedule when it becomes available sometime down the line.

Jazz Fest takes place April 27-29 and May 3-6 at the Fair Grounds Race Track, 1751 Gentilly Blvd. Daily tickets to the event are $65 in advance or $80 at the gate. Advance sales end April 26 for the first weekend and May 2 for the second. Admission for children 2-10 is $5; younger kids are free. Special $50 admission at the gate for Louisiana residents on "locals Thursday," May 3.

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

Jerry Lee Lewis and Aretha due to their legendary status, although it may be a bit painful, sadly.

Good line up and very decent ticket prices too.
