Voodoo Fest 2016

It’d be lovely to say, “As we emerge from the long, hot New Orleans summer…”, but who are we kidding?  We’re barely halfway through and starting to wilt, not only from the heat and murderous humidity, but from the lack of music.  No one in their right minds would hold a festival now but looking forward there’s hope, both for hoodie wearing and to catch some of our favorite acts at the 2016 Voodoo Music Experience.  While we wait for October, sitting in front of our fan and sipping mint juleps, here’s a visual flashback to some of our favorite Voodoo experiences.  We hope to see you on the grounds, so very soon!
