I’ve been able to attend Jazz Fest twice. Once in 2004 and once in 2006. My goal is to return to be able to cover the event sometime soon. The energy during the two weekends is usually positive. The cultural blend that makes up New Orleans creates a hotbed for artistic flow. The food and atmosphere at the festival embodies the spirit of New Orleans.

The Soul Rebels perform the music to the video showcasing the featured artists for 2015.
