Back from a very nice trip to New Orleans with my wife's family. We were able to make to Jazzfest for two days of the final weekend. This year was the 40th annual and a great one indeed. The highlight for me was Bonnie Raitt on the main stage (there are 11 stages going at the same time including stages featuring jazz, blues, gospel, traditional and the big names. The gospel tent is a must stop for music lovers. So much energy! I missed my favorite band, The Neville Brothers as they always close the show and we were already on the plane. Other highlights included Marcia Ball, The Iguanas and CJ Stiener and the Red Hot Band. Let the good times roll!
