Doing the Jazzfest thing? I saw something about something else that's going on there right around the same time, I believe, & figured I'd drop a link to this, which sounds at least as interesting...and my apologies if this has been mentioned before. Looks like a lot of fun...


NEW ORLEANS, LA. ( - Tickets on sale now for ultimate roots fest which will feature Archie Bell, Nokie Edwards (The Ventures), Betty Harris (first show in 30 years), Roy Head, Lazy Lester, Lil' Buck Senegal & the Top Cats with Stanley 'Buckwheat Zydeco' Dural, Barbara Lynn, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Scotty Moore, Ray Sharpe, Brenton Wood and Link Wray plus 30 others.

Unsung creators of rock'n'roll, r&b, rockabilly, blues and swamp pop -- ones who made influential vintage recordings, perhaps scored a hit, and have been long forgotten by today's pop mainstream – will be once again celebrated as Ponderosa Stomp announces the lineup for its fourth annual music festival.

The two-night music festival, scheduled for April 26-27, 2005, again will take place on two stages at the legendary Mid City Rock'N'Bowl Lanes in New Orleans from 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. each night. Tickets sell for $35 per night through the festival's web site, and at the door. Prospective attendees are advised to purchase tickets well in advance as both nights are expected to sell out. The two nights of Ponderosa Stomp are book-ended by the two weekends of JazzFest so thousands of music fans will fill the Crescent City.
