Highlights for Sunday, the final day of the 2016 French Quarter Festival....
On its final day, the 2016 French Quarter Festival builds to a big finish.
At their best, the members of the Honey Island Swamp Band evoke Little Feat jamming with the Allman Brothers at the intersection of Napoleon and Tchoupitoulas. Catch them at 3:50 p.m. on the Tropical Isle Hand Grenade Stage.
Singer and trombonist Glen David Andrews cut his teeth in brass bands, but found his calling as a frontman steeped in gospel and soul. His Gospel Tent shows at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival are sweaty, high-energy affairs. Look for him to raise the roof at Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse inside the Royal Sonesta Hotel during his two-hour gospel tribute, starting at 2:30 p.m.
Singer and guitarist Paul Sanchez penned some of the strongest songs in the Cowboy Mouth catalog before moving on to a solo career. He’s expanded his range and collaborated with a wide array of New Orleans artists. He’ll be at the Jackson Square Stage at 12:45 p.m.
Trumpeter and vocalist Jeremy Davenport and his crisp jazz combo perform four nights a week in suits and ties at the Ritz-Carlton lounge named from him. At French Quarter Festival, they dress down to play in the sunshine. But they still swing just as hard, and Davenport’s self-deprecating humor is still as mischievous as ever. Catch them at 3:50 p.m. at Jackson Square.
