On Friday, April 29th at the Howlin’ Wolf in New Orleans, many of the nation's finest musicians will come together during the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival to bring you an all night live music event featuring nine bands on two simultaneous stages. This year's diverse line up consists of several varieties of funk and dance music flavored with soul, afro-beat, jazz fusion, rock and New Orleans rhythms. The Bayou Rendezvous will rage all night, from 9PM to 8AM, and is always one of the most memorable and unique night shows during Jazz Fest!
Starting the night off in the main room will be a special set paying tribute to the late great Allan Toussaint and his immense catalogue of classics. New Orleans Suspects, a super group with members of The Neville Brothers, James Brown's Band & The Radiators will be performing along with John "Papa" Gros, The Naughty Professor Horns and Special Guests: Roosevelt Collier (The Lee Boys), Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band), and more.
Dr. Klaw, a super group made up of Eric Krasno and Adam Deitch from Lettuce, Nick Daniels III and Ian Neville from Dumpstaphunk and Nigel Hall from The Warren Haynes Band, will make a rare appearance at this year's Bayou Rendezvous. They are one of the funkiest bands around, and will surely bring the heat that only this combination can muster up. They have a soon to be released album coming out, and their set will surely showcase some of the band's new original music.
The Bayou Rendezvous All-Stars is an exciting combination of master musicians put together exclusively for this year's event, and features Dead and Company and Allman Brothers Band bassist, Oteil Burbridge, his brother Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band), local New Orleans legends, Ivan Neville, Stanton Moore & Johnny Vidacovich, along with guitar god, Eric McFadden (P-Funk, Anders Osborne). The line up for this band consists of two drummers, two keyboardist, guitar and bass, and will surely deliver a unique and powerful set.
Polyrhythmics, a funky eight piece afro-beat band from Seattle, WA will close out the main stage. Aside from playing their fantastic original music, they will also be debuting DEAD BEAT, a tribute to the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia with new funky afro-beat arrangements featuring special guests from The Motet and Monophonics.
The Den stage, will start off with Good Enough For Good Times, a traditional Bayou Rendezvous favorite, who will bring their tight groove orientated instrumental sounds to the intimate setting. This band is made up of Galactic's Rob Mercurio and Jeff Raines along with Simon Lott (Charlie Hunter) and Joe Ashler (Eddie Roberts). Next up will be Magic Gravy, an improvisational trio consisting of Dan (Lebo) Lebowitz from ALO along with Dave Watts and Garrett Sayers from The Motet. This line up has been around for years, but their acclaimed live shows are rare, and should not be missed.
Moon Hooch from Brooklyn, NY, will get the late night dance party started with their percussion and saxophone based "Cave Music." Their set will be followed by fellow New Yorker's, Sophistafunk, a multi-genre tour de force from Syracuse. This year's legendary Sunrise Breakfast Jam will feature 4 Piece Puzzle (Lake Tahoe, CA) and lots of special guests. Breakfast will be served and the band will keep the festival pros dancing well past sunrise.
Chris Rossbach, Zigaboo Modeliste's guitarist, will be this year's Artist at Large and will be sitting in with several acts throughout the night. DJ Disco E (Ian from Monophonics) and DJ Rippin' Riff will be spinning rare groove tweener sets to keep the music going all night.
