Jazzfest Leg 3 @ Fairgrounds 5/6/12

Los Hombres Calientes was awesome at the Jazz & Heritage Stage.  They also had some night gigs I didn't get to.  I hope they come around these parts again.

The Ed Volker Band at the Lagniappe Stage was pretty good.
A founding member of The Radiators, Ed Volker, aka Zeke, is a New Orleans native and a prolific songwriter who sings and plays keyboard. Though The Radiators recently called it quits after 33 years, Volker continues to perform around town and has become a popular act on his own.

Jazzfest is my chance to see some big names I wouldn't otherwise get to.  I met a guy who works for The Foo Fighters that morning and it sparked my curiosity.  I remember it was fine, just not my style.

Bonnie Raitt is always good.

I love Rebirth Brass Band.  They killed as usual.

Asleep at the Wheel was quite enjoyable at the Fais Do-Do Stage.  I need to look up more about them.
