NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Fans braved an inordinate amount of rain on Thursday to kick off the second weekend of the seven-day New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
The rain muddied and puddled the infield of the Fair Grounds Race Course but failed to keep music lovers away from the festival, which showcased performances by Widespread Panic, Darius Rucker and Corinne Bailey Rae.
NEW YORK (AP) — Common and Corinne Bailey Rae are set to make their debut at the Playboy Jazz Festival.
The rapper and the songstress are slated to appear at the 39th annual event in Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl. Others set to appear include Marcus Miller, Gregory Porter, the Kenny Garrett Quintet and TajMo' — the combo of Taj Mahal and the Keb' Mo' Band.
The festival will be held June 10-11. George Lopez is set to host the weekend for the fifth time.
