KCCK Takes You to the NO Jazz Fest - Dennis

This Thursday and Friday, Iowa's Jazz Station takes you to the French Quarter with two afternoons of live broadcasts from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

We're partnering with WWOZ-FM, to bring a little New Orleans to Iowa with performances from a variety of great jazz and blues players.

It'll be like having a spot right in front of the speaker. And best of all, no standing in line for the porta-pottie!

We recommend leaving work early, fixing yourself a hurricane (here's a recipe) and turning up the radio real loud. But, if you are stuck at your desk, plug in a pair of headphones and crank up the webcast or listen on your phone with the KCCK iPhone app.

Here's the schedule.

Thursday, May 5
2:45 pm - Charles Musselwhite
4:10 pm - Delfeayo Marsalis & the Uptown Orchestra
5:50 pm - Ruthie Foster

Friday, May 6
12:10 - Stefon Harris & Blackout
1:35 pm - David Torkanowsky's Fleur DiBris (with George Porter Jr. of the Meters)
2:55 pm - Stanton Moore Trio
4:05 on - James Booker Piano Tribute with Joshua Paxton & Tom McDermott
5:35 pm - Mingus Big Band

Performance times, and for that matter, performers themselves are subject to change.
