jazzfest.logo.jpgThe New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival announced its enormous line-up today. The annual music extravaganza is slated for April 27-29 and May 4-6. As usual, the line-up combines a huge list of mainstream pop acts, jam-rock and groove-oriented bands, and a slate of jazz combos strewn throughout the city.

Seems like everyone’s trying to get in on the “support New Orleans” tip since Katrina. But I’m definitely not complaining, because this line-up has something for everyone. Is it me, or does it just keep going and going?
