New Orleans Jazz Festival (2017)

Spring’s officially here, and if you’re in New Orleans, that means jazz is in the air. From April 28th to May 7th, 2017, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival celebrates the Crescent City’s rich musical and cultural history.

From the first performances of gospel great Mahalia Jackson and the legendary Duke Ellington, New Orleans has been the home of some of the greatest jazz innovators and a vibrant cultural melting pot. If you take a stroll through the cobblestone streets of the French Quarter, the atmosphere is always a collision of musical genres, ranging from blues to bluegrass and jam bands to ‘80s rock staples. Well at the New Orleans Jazz Festival (2017) you’ll be safe from the night’s hundredth Journey cover or some drunken nomadic musician playing Sublime’s “What I Got.” At the New Orleans Jazz Festival (2017) you’ll be immersed in the full spectrum of jazz stylings, from bebop and bossa nova to electric jazz and locally-flavored dixieland.

But maybe there’s such a thing as too much jazz? If you need a reprieve from freeform jazz improvisation, you can indulge in the other performers specializing in cajun, zydeco, delta blues, folk, rock, or Afro-Caribbean music on the roster of talent. With Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty, Dave Matthews, Snoop Dogg, Usher fronting The Roots, and Lorde all on board, New Orleans Jazz Festival (2017) is an extraordinary collection of performers all united under the umbrella of musical exploration and appreciation. But again, we promise: No Journey covers. If you desperately need to hear “Don’t Stop Believing” you can hear it inside any Bourbon Street club with a neon horseshoe on the window or on any juke joint selling half-priced Abita drafts during happy hour.
