Watch Red Hot Chili Peppers Jam with George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, and Zigaboo at Jazz Fest April 26, 2016 09:36
The 2016 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival kicked off in in strong fashion over the weekend, with performances from the likes of Pearl Jam, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, Grace Potter, Gov't Mule, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Galactic, Anders Osborne, and so many more. One performance in particular that caught our attention was the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the Acura Stage late in the afternoon on Sunday. After nearly two hours of RHCP's greatest hits, bassist Flea invited New Orleans funk legends George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, and Zigaboo Modeliste on stage for one final song, "Give It Away". Another perfect example of something that will only happen at one event: JazzFest.
Jazz Fest is an annual celebration of the music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana. Use of the term "Jazz Fest" can also include the days surrounding the Festival and the many shows at unaffiliated New Orleans nightclubs scheduled during the Festival event weekends. JazzFest continues throughout this week/weekend, and a full schedule of events and performances can be found by clicking here.
