The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, or as the locals call it, Jazz Fest, is the celebration of the unique culture and heritage of New Orleans and Louisiana. Featuring an endless amount of music, succulent local and regional delicacies, one-of-a-kind handmade arts and crafts, second line parades and so much more ? there is something for everyone at Jazz Fest!
Over the years Jazz Fest has received many honors, including being named the Festival of the Year four times by Pollstar magazine. The Wall Street Journal says Jazz Fest ?showcases a wider, deeper lineup of essential American musical styles than any festival in the nation?? and Life magazine has called Jazz Fest ?the country?s very best music festival.??
With 12 stages of soul-stirring music?jazz, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, blues, R&B, rock, funk, African, Latin, Caribbean, folk, and much more?the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is a singular celebration. The event has showcased most of the great artists of New Orleans and Louisiana of the last half century: Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, The Neville Brothers, Wynton Marsalis, Dr. John, Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr., Ellis Marsalis, The Radiators, Irma Thomas, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Allen Toussaint, Buckwheat Zydeco, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Better Than Ezra, Ernie K-Doe, Vernel Bagneris, The Zion Harmonizers, Beausoleil and many others.

King, Dave Matthews Band, Patti LaBelle, Tito Puente, the Allman Brothers Band, Joni Mitchell, Al Green, Linda Ronstadt, Lenny Kravitz, Sonny Rollins, Bonnie Raitt, James Brown, Celia Cruz, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Hugh Masekela, Cassandra Wilson, Willie Nelson, The Temptations, Burning Spear, Van Morrison, LL Cool J, Abbey Lincoln, Erykah Badu, Dave Brubeck, Gladys Knight, Youssou N?Dour and many, many others.
You?ll really feel the heart and soul of the Crescent City at the new Wyndham La Belle Maison, located on Gravier Street in the famous Warehouse District, two blocks from the French Quarter. This original Franklin Printing Company landmark was meticulously restored to assure you a delightful downtown stay, including an eight-story skylight atrium centerpiece, historic Crescent City d?cor, on-site amenities and much more. I have a two bedroom/two bathroom deluxe suite with kitchen, dining and living room reserved from Friday, April 23rd to Monday, May 3rd, to encompass the entire Jazz Fest. If you would like to stay for less nights, we can do that if there is someone to take the remaining nights for your spot. There will be two people per room at $100 each per night. Jazz Fest tickets are not included, but we will try to purchase a weekend or full week package when we know who will be joining us, and more details are available about the festival. We will also have days during the week to tour the city. Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to this great vacation and your company!
