John Lisi & Delta Funk -- Better Late Than Never

Get to take a little time out to post my NOLA Jazzfest recap finally! We hit the Blues Tent straight away and landed second row seats one through five (left side 'cause that's where Sonny Landreth stands when he performs). First up, a talented guitarist and singer by the name of John Lisi. During his set, he played the intro to Stairway to Heaven because as he put it he wanted to be the first to do so on the second day of the festival, too funny. Band was super tight and his backup singer has an amazing voice, so powerful I noticed her standing off the mike yet still belting it out with ease. Spoke to him briefly after the show and congratulated him and his band on nailing it. Let him know that I look forward to seeing him again. Just something about a fest bringing out the best in the local talent regardless of where...
