Who will you be going to see close ‘er down on the final day of Jazz Fest this year? When we asked Grant Widmer of the Generationals last weekend (see interview here), he responded “ 1000%,” adding further that “those guys are the Mount Rushmore of New Orleans music.”

For many, The Neville Brothers on the main stage on Sunday evening is an unparalleled tradition at Jazz Fest (despite a couple year break before returning in ’08), acting as a ritualistic conclusion to the frenetic-paced Mardi Gras-to-Jazz Fest festival season. However, with the Last Watusi final shows approaching fast on the horizon, this year’s 5:30-7:00 p.m. set marks final farewell to Jazz Fest and their tradition of closing down the Gentilly Stage. The performance is sure to be a down and dirty Fish Head party amongst friends and special guests on the other side of the Fairgrounds. Also, with Sonny Rollins, Robert Randolph and the Family Band and Maze also playing in between, you can’t really go wrong wherever the wind blows you.

Who will you be seeing come May 8th? Vote below.

About the author

Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and The Big Easy where he helped get LMB NOLA off-the-ground after launching in January 2011. Over the past few years, he has also contributed steadily to JamBase and Relix Magazine. Recently, Hodges moved on to L.A. where Abita Beer is hard to find, costs about $6 if located and impromptu parading in the streets will most likely get you arrested on the spot.

    Because they represent New Orleans to me. A million years before I even visited the city, they were NOLA in my head.

    • Linza

      that didn’t work like I thought it would. I picked the Neville Brothers.

  • Marcello

    Neither. Not going to Jazz Fest this year. This Fest just might be a sign of the coming Apocalypse. Jimmy Buffett and Kenny G booked the same year? Start digging those bunkers people! But if I was going, I’d definitely see the Radiators. Their show at the Krewe du Vieux Ball was off the chain.
