New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is a multi-genre music festival in Louisiana's biggest city. One of the most revered in the world, the festival should be on any serious music fan's bucket list.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, New Orleans Jazz Fest was born when Mahalia Jackson and Duke Ellington spontaneously started singing along as the Eureka Brass Band walked through the Louisiana Heritage Festival. Out of that moment of pure musicality grew one of the foundational and longest running festivals there is.
Welcoming roughly 500,000 music fans every year, the festival annually curates a lineup of some of the most influential acts of the last half-century.
This year the likes of The Rolling Stones, Chris Stapleton, Katy Perry, Santana, and Dave Matthews will grace the festival's illustrious main stage, to name but a few. ……https://bit.ly/2DksQWM

New Orleans man pleads guilty in 2016 bicyclist's death
A New Orleans man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of a man on a bicycle more than two years ago.
District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro's office told news outlets that 29-year-old Alvin Berfect also pleaded guilty Wednesday to six unrelated counts of armed robbery and 20 other crimes. Under a plea deal, Berfect will be sentenced to 33 years in prison.
Berfect had been charged with manslaughter in the 2016 hit-and-run death of 51-year-old Eddie Ray King, a chef at a French Quarter steakhouse. King was on his way home from work when he was struck by a car.
Prosecutors say Berfect was driving a stolen car when he hit King. He also had been accused of robbing six people at gunpoint in separate incidents around New Orleans.
