Rumba Buena at the Congo Square Stage was fun, even though I didn't stay long. From the jazzfest listing: "Rumba Buena (Latin)
Specializing in salsa and meringue, this band is made up of musicians who, pre-Katrina, played in groups like Los Babies and Los Sagitarios. It’s the brainchild of percussionist Johnny Marcia."
I liked Russell Batiste & friends for a minute but then it went soul jazz and I had to go.
I thought I'd be making the rounds for a while but I got stopped in the Blues Tent at Mem Shannon & the Membership and had to stay for the rest of the set. It was awesome. My legs were sore, so I just chair danced. It was blues gone funky.
