Sauce on your Monday Night! I was not expecting the 2010 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival lineup to drop until mid-day Tuesday. But alas, at 11:40pm Monday- I checked their website, and there it was! The lineup in all its glory with its usual cliffhanger TBA.
The lineup looks pretty solid this year with headliners Pearl Jam, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Costello, Van Morrison, Lionel Richie, Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic, etc, etc. I'm personally excited to get my soul sauce on with Aretha, Gil Scott Heron, Chocolate Milk, wow there are too many to write about.
As usual the fest stays true to its roots with tons of Louisiana and New Orleans Bands keepin in real.

TBA predictions on the fly (Jazzfest didn't even occur to me 'till this morning):
In order of quasai-improbability with commentary:
  • Lil Wayne (Top of list due to pending Jail time)
  • Paul McCartney
  • The Who (hey, they are playing the super bowl)
  • Bruce Springsteen
  • Rolling Stones
  • Madonna!? (YES!)
  • Bob Dylan
  • Kanye West (Please don't ever come back to nola)
  • Them Crooked Vultures
  • Black Eyed Peas
  • U2
  • Radiohead
  • Coldplay
  • Depeche Mode
  • Beck
  • Lady Gaga / Miley Cyrus (tie)
  • Norah Jones
  • Randy Newman
Music Maven Mimi's Predictions:
  • ACDC
  • Weezer
  • Them Crooked Vultures
  • INXS
  • Metallica
  • The Eagles
  • Fleetwood Mac
  • Muse

Fact is I really have no clue and I'm exhausted.

Grrrrr A Saucy FESTIVALLLLLLLLLL Tuesday and no sleep tonight!

Who are your TBA predictions???


  1. the who and macca are great thoughts, but you have to check roger daultry's schedule as he is on tour with clapton for some of the spring, however maybe both daultry and clapton will show?

    what about phish...they did the jazzfest thing once, they hit bonnaroo, had their own festival, new album and have been in the public eye since last year.

    james taylor is reuninting his troubador band that includes carole king and they are performing songs from tapestry, james taylor and sweet baby james...they could most certainly be in the mix

    steve windwood, bruce hornsby, stevie wonder and lou reed have all had busy years and certainly can fill a spot

    elton has been quiet and so has billy joel, maybe it's time for some dueling pianos too?

    csn(y) are always ready to rock the circuit as well

    and for the most unlikely but way cool would be Prince

  2. no idea on the TBA artist -- i never have had a good pulse on "popular" music. is Pavement set to get back together? ...i will say i'm definitely looking forward to the not-a-surprise-anymore sunrise set by Zack Teibloom & the Four Lokos!

  3. I'm most hoping for a classic rock giant (Paul, Clapton, The Who, The Stones, CSN) but I'd love Phish or Prince just as much. Any of those 6 would be incredible.
