Who's returning to Jazz Fest today?  It's the 2nd Friday of the festival.  We talked to some who were at the festival grounds yesterday and are returning today.  

"I'll be back for Dave Matthews," said one woman.  "I wouldn't miss it for the world." 

"I have my schedule all made out," this lady who has it all organized, said.  "Shades of Praise in the Gospel Tent, the New Orleans R&B Divas featuring the Dixie Cups and Wanda Rouzan, Sonny Landreth,  the Revivalists, Earth, Wind & Fire and Dave Matthews."

"Of course we're eating," one man said.  "I'm going to get the oyster patty and crawfish sacks, seafood caserole, and cochon de lait."  

"We're originally from here but now live in Los Angeles, California,"  this man said with his wife.  "It's good to be back home." 

"Most people go straight for the soft shell crab poboy, but I was told that you should go straight for the meaty beans and be sure to ask for the ribs, but you've gotta ask for them," one man told us. 

"It's not going to be as cold and windy as yesterday," another man said.  "We're here for Dave Matthews and some great New Orleans music."  

The next 3 days of Jazz Fest should see exceptional weather.  Sunshine with temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.  

Happy Jazz Fest.
