The Fairgrounds was host for the first half of the famed event, with that included Common, Kidd Jordan, Bobby Rush, The Ron Carter Trio, Big Freedia and Big Chief Donald Harrison. One of the standout moments on Saturday was an all-star tribute to the late Fats Domino featuring an all-star array of contributors that included Davell Crawford, Irma Thomas, Jon Batiste and more performing some of Fats’ most beloved songs.” The second week will be as great as the first, so of course, Data will see you there!!!
