NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The first weekend of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is wrapping up.
The high-profile performances Sunday include the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nick Jonas who will close their respective stages.
The festival is seven days of rock, R&B, jazz, gospel and other types of music and lectures across 12 stages.
While there are a number of big-name, out-of-state acts, the festival features a vast array of local talent.
The Imagination Movers, a rock group for kids that wears blue coveralls and shoots toilet paper into the audience, will perform on the Gentilly Stage.
The New Orleans Suspects, a band that longtime Radiators' bass player Reggie Scanlan helped create, performs on the Acura Stage.
