of Asleep at the Wheel
We plan to close with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band extravaganza, but I want to sample Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings at the Blues Tent. We do. From the right side of the tent, we have decent viewing, but the sound mix is really bad and we leave. The Preservation show is a great finish, lots of guests (Steve Earle, Bonnie, Allen Toussaint, Ani DiFranco, etc.) and they are energetic and talented. Perfect close. A quick Abita at the Seahorse with a number of Jazz Fest friends as we exit, then back to the Quarter to clean up, get a bite to eat (I get my hash n eggs!), a nightcap at Laffite's and to bed. Another Jazz Fest in the books.
