What to watch at the upcoming New Orleans Jazzfest, a music festival from the ’80s and ’90s
WANSEE EXPRESS / THE FORTNEY PRESS New Orleans, LA – October 12, 2017 – A new Jazzfest from the early ’80’s and early ’90’s is returning to New Orleans.
On Saturday, October 11, WANGETON Entertainment will stage a free, all-ages concert at the iconic New Orleans Palace Theatre.
It’s a musical jam that will feature some of the most popular hits from the mid-’80s, as well as songs that have been recorded, including “The New Orleans Rock & Roll Anthem” by the Dixie Chicks, “Dixie Girl” by Dixie Jones and “I’ll Be There” by Muddy Waters.
WANLET EXPRESS is proud to be the only major festival to include all-new music from the New Orleans era.
This will be the last concert for JazzFest.
The JazzFest will also include a special show featuring The Dixie Jam.
“The Dixie Jams” are a musical celebration of the original band members who formed The Dixies in 1959.
They released their first single, “Honey,” in October 1960.
“I think the Dixys are the best band I’ve ever heard in my life,” says singer and guitarist Bob Davenport.
“They’re a band that I love and I always want to be a part of.
It will be a really special experience.
We have a lot of great artists that will be playing and we’re going to have some amazing music.”
The DIXIES’ iconic “The Lazy Song” has never been performed live in New Orleans before.
“It will be fun,” says vocalist Donnie Jones.
“We’re going out and playing all the old songs.
We’re playing our old songs and it’s going to be fun to play.”
“I’m so excited about it,” says guitarist Steve Jones.
The Dicks will be joined by bassist Bobbie Johnson, drummer Bob Crosby and keyboardist Gene Clark.
“There are a lot more new artists coming in that we haven’t heard yet,” says Crosby.
In addition to performing a variety of new songs, the DIXYS will also be playing their classic hits, including hits like “Little Birdie” and “Don’t Call Me Mama.”
The New Orleans Jams will feature the band’s best-selling single, the “Hazelnut” from their 1972 album “Little Dixie.”
“It’s really going to bring everybody back and get everyone excited,” says Johnson.
“When I first heard the track, I was really excited to be there and to perform the song.
I know a lot about it.
It is a classic song and it will be really special.”
WANTHEIS Entertainment and its partner The Duxies are pleased to announce the return of JazzFest, which was the first of its kind in New York City.
“For years, the New York Jazz Festival was an annual tradition that brought together the best in New Jazz and the music industry,” said Steve Jones, bassist of The Dukes.
“Now, as part of the JazzFest family, we’re excited to bring the best of our New Orleans music to the New Yorkers who are coming to New York for the first time.”
The festival will continue in 2019 and 2020, with two new concerts in 2018.
