The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival launched today and will run until May 5. I’ve covered Jazz Fest for years and the festival draws together top acts in jazz, blues, pop and rock that always electrify the spirit and the soul of New Orleans.
This year Jazz Fest is bringing together Billy Joel, The Black Keys, Maroon 5, Hall & Oates, Dave Matthews, Fleetwood Mac and more phenomenal performers. But, let’s not just highlight the celebrity crew, the festival is also a wonderful event to get together with new and old friends to enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer anyone with a sense of adventure and intrigue. It’s a fascinating city with a remarkable history, along with it’s being “magnetic north” for jazz music!
Here are a few more of my photos from past Jazz Fest performances to give you another taste of what to expect from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival 2013!
