I love New Orleans - Music (really really good music) is everywhere - one of my best memories of the city was drinking coffee at 5AM at Cafe Du Monde after having a good time a few blocks up all night and hearing a group of musicians playing Moon River on the River Walk - perfectly sublime. I'll be going even if U2 doesn't play - but if they do

As of now I’ve booked a lovely little hotel in the middle of the quarter (the fair grounds are about 10 minutes away) if you are thinking about going book now

Hopefully all of the rumors are true

Hmmmmmm reading all this makes me think ROAD TRIP! This would be very fun. I LOVE jazz, and it would be so cool to be back in New Orleans, especially after what has happened there, it will be good for their economy and I'd like to be a part of Music Cares and supporting bringing the music back to New Orleans. Of course seeing U2 would be a HUGE bonus....hmmmmmmm

you know, i was talking to someone who worked at one of the venues where U2 played on the last leg and he said the roughest crowd he had EVER had to deal with was at a Jimmy Buffet show.



Carek, drive on over/down!

I did a mapquest----26 hour drive from San Diego. Could get some friends.....could be a roadtrip in the planning stages.......got an iTrip and enough music to entertain us on the drive to and from. Me thinks it's doable!

I also am seriously leaning toward attending, regardless of the U2 rumor.

If I manage to wrangle up enough $$ for a hotel (holy crap! I have sticker shock!), it looks like I can only plan on attending the second weekend --graduation's at the end of April (yay!). Although, right now I'm concidering bribing someone to attend the ceremony in my place and deal with the family units...

Wow, imagine what it would be like if all those acts show up to play. Isn't Jazzfest free?
