Perfect weather greets Jazz Fest goers on Day 2
NEW ORLEANS - Perfect weather - sunshine, temperatures in the high 70s, blue skies and a cool breeze - greeted music lovers attending the second day of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
Beer, lemonade and frozen drinks flowed Saturday as fans settled in for a day of music, including early performances by Tab Benoit, Anders Osborne and one of New Orleans' premiere brass/funk bands, Big Sam's Funky Nation.
Later, headliners Pearl Jam was scheduled to close the festival's largest stage, while Van Morrison, Maxwell and Boz Scaggs closed out the others.
A jazz funeral was held on the grounds of the Fair Grounds Race Course, where the festival is annually held, in honor of New Orleans' R&B singer-songwriter and producer Allen Toussaint, who died last year.
