The Daze Between Band is back for another year in New Orleans during Jazz Fest! The annual tradition during the “daze between” Jazz Fest weekends in the Big Easy, now in its fourth year running, will see guitarist Eric Krasno (Soulive, Oteil & Friends) joined by an all-star cast of players, this time featuring members of Widespread Panic, Marcus King Band, Dumpstaphunk, Jimmy Herring & The 5 of 7, and more. After several sold-out years at the beloved French Quarter club, One Eyed Jacks, the Daze Between Band will move to famous uptown venue Tipitina’s on Wednesday, April 29th, 2020.
This year’s lineup will feature what fans at Jazz Fest have come to expect from the Daze Between Band: an impressive lineup of world-class musicians. The core of the band will be made up of Krasno’s bandmates in his side-project, The Cleaners: white-hot guitarist/vocalist Marcus King, drummer and rhythmic royalty Duane Trucks (Widespread Panic), bassist Kevin Scott (Jimmy Herring), and organist/keyboardist Pete Levin (Gregg Allman Band, Amanda Shires). In addition to that powerful core, the band will be joined by New Orleans icon Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk) on keys/vocals as well as powerhouse NOLA vocalist Erica Falls (formerly of Galactic).
Eric Krasno has been a staple of New Orleans Jazz Fest late nights for over a decade, having cemented himself as one of the key players in the late-night scene with various appearances with Lettuce and Soulive as well as many special performances with special supergroups and one-off band lineups.
Krasno started ‘The Daze Between Band’ in 2017 and has since turned it into one of the most celebrated shows at Jazz Fest. Each year, fans watch a killer lineup of players from across the live music spectrum come together for a unique night of music. Previous versions of the Daze Between Band have featured appearances by Warren Haynes, Dave Schools, Oteil Burbridge, Scott Metzger, Jeff Sipe, Tom Hamilton, John Medeski, Robert Sput Searight, Mononeon, Shira Elias, Grahame Lesh & Elliot Peck, Nate Werth, and more. With so much musical talent in town during Jazz Fest, you never know who might show up to jump in with The Daze Between Band!
