Break out your smartphone cameras, because your social media feed has potential to get a lot more star-studded. Our Jazz and Heritage Festival is opening for business, and there is something for everyone: the Who, Elton John, No Doubt, Widespread Panic, Keith Urban, and Jimmy Buffett are all joining in the music mayhem. And if you somehow don't care for any of these guys, there is more.
There is also Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, Wilco, Ryan Adams, Pitbull, Chicago, T.I. Jerry Lee Lewis, Steve Winwood, and Buddy Guy. Exhale.
Inhale. Jimmy Cliff, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Allen Toussaint, Sturgill Simpson, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the Meters, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Blind Boys of Alabama, and...
Oh, heck. Mosey on over to their site for the full lowdown and for a chance to catch your breath. The concert starts on April 24-26, and then again on April 30-May 3. But tickets have already gone on sale. So go already!
