Well, in the case of the last set of the inaugural NOLA Crawfish Festival, you end up with a capacity crowd of smiling people eating, drinking and dancing!The new festival was held on the “daze between” Jazz Fest weekends, and the all-star lineup merged together with ease. Whether it was Radiators’ guitarist Dave Malone trading licks with NOLA staple Billy Iuso, or George Porter Jr.’s thumping basslines, or Higgins’ powerful rhythms, everyone in the capacity crowd was shaking it! The band even welcomed sit-ins from Jason Crosby and Anders Osborne throughout the set, only adding to the magic with their soul drenched musicianship.The band kept things loose and jammy, and no song went under ten minutes as the players took turns stretching the elements. Fortunately, we had our own Rex Thomson on hand to capture the magic at the NOLA Brewery. Without further ado, check out The Crawfish All-Stars at their finest!“Papaya”“Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues”“George’s Jam”“Them Changes”“Do or Die” The second annual NOLA Crawfish Festival will take place at Central City BBQ during the days between Jazz Fest weekends, May 1-3.
