Zigaboo Modeliste’s Funk Revue & MJ vs. Stevie @ Howlin’ Wolf
May 7 @ 10:00 pm$25
On the final night of Jazz Fest, legendary drummer and co-founder of The Meters, Zigaboo Modeliste, will put on his 19th annual “Zigaboo’s Funk Revue” at the Howlin’ Wolf. The show will bring together some of the best special guests that the Big Easy has to offer for a funk music extravaganza that has become a quintessential part of Jazz Fest.
Right after Zigaboo’s set, the powerhouse combination Adam Deitch (Lettuce), Eric “Benny” Bloom (Lettuce), Nigel Hall (Lettuce), MonoNeon (Prince’s Band), Wil Blades, and DJ Williams will come together once again for their special Michael Jackson vs. Stevie Wonder tribute set. Making its third consecutive appearance at Jazz Fest, this awesome show will honor the classic catalogs of two of music’s most prodigious talents. The legendary Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder are artists whose music goes hand in hand with everything that the fest is about, namely music, celebration, and love.
Organ Freeman will also be performing a super-late-night set in The Den after MJ vs. Stevie finishes up.
