Of course, I still had a good time. I just decided to sell my tickets for Sat and Sun, even though the weather was going to be better. I just wanted to have fun in NOLA on those days and just wasn't feeling the fest.
The 2 days I did go, there was some rain. It wasn't a big deal. It was really weird how cool it was for this time of year. I had the right attire, and I don't really remember that much about it. Oh, now I remember at first it was somewhat cold and rainy, but there was good music in the jazz tent and room to sit. I was happy.
I had a great poncho. I went to the organ woodshed in the jazz tent. It was great, especially the beg and end.
Woodshed: Hammond B3 (Jazz)
Two experienced organ players, Kyle Roussel and Joe Ashlar, will give the audience a course on the Hammond B3 organs.
They will perform in a variety of genres, including funk, gospel, and jazz.
I was very happy to be there and very happy with the set.
Kidd Jordan, sax
William Parker, bass
Alvin Fielder, drums
Joel Futterman, piano
Maynard Chatters Jr, piano
I went to a little of Henry Butler. Fabulous. I love Henry.
I saw Gravy before leaving at Lagniappe. I liked them. It was nice to find something new.
Infusing musical aspects from all walks of life, Gravy’s brand of progressive funk rock has garnered a solid fan base, firmly cementing the band as a fixture in the New Orleans music scene. Touring consistently since their inception, Gravy has established itself as one of the Southeast’s rising acts.
