New Orleans 2019 Videos - Day 11


A stormy Saturday morning led to another Jazz Fest rain delay

The Fair Grounds were wet when we arrived. The geese were enjoying Amanda Shaw at the Gentilly Stage

I started out at the Fais Do Do Stage, to which Jazz Fest had transported the entire Saturday morning jam session from the Savoy Music Center in Eunice. This Cajun music wall of sound was absolutely incredible. 

Over at the Lagniappe stage, Tom Worrell led Mo' Fess, playing the music of Professor Longhair

The shrimp-booted Jesse McBride led his big band in the Jazz Tent

Galactic at the Acura Stage. I watched from the fringes. Laurie was deep in the crowd ... and mud.

Tribu Baharú, from Colombia

In the Gospel Tent, the Voices of Peter Claver

The Storyville Stompers paid tribute to their late Grand Marshall, Wesley Schmidt, by placing a pair of his many colorful shoes on the stage and playing Over in the Glory Land before their usual rollicking set

Happily, the Robert Randolph Family Band was a last-minute addition to the lineup today 

As we waited in line for the shuttle bus, we caught the odd activity as one of the beverage stands wound down

Tonight we went to the Parish Room, upstairs at the House of Blues, to see
Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs
