I'm 55 and have been "…rockin' around with you" since the late seventies when my first wife and I would put you on the turntable, crank it, light it up, and get right for a Saturday night. But in all those years, and all the places I've been, unbelivablyI was never quite able to make it to a show. So, I don't write fan mail, or letters of adoration, but I did want to just say thanks. It was worth the wait and you and the Heatbreakers did light it up yourself and did right by Jazz Fest. Also big, big congrats to Steve for his own private day of celebration in the days before Saturday's show. Real good job, you! R

Great show, as always and wonderful crowd. Thanks for coming to Jazz Fest and come back soon. Also loved that in your recap you mentioned the stage as the Fess Stage (which is it's original name in tribute to Professor Longhair) instead of the current corporate name it is called by others. Locals still call it Fess Stage! Thanks Again for great show, come back to NOLA anytime! The Mojo is waiting!

I've been attending Jazz Fest for over 30 years and this was one the best sets I've ever seen there. Thanks for finally coming to NOLA to play the Fest !
