Haley Reinhart was back in New Orleans last weekend to perform their jazzy renditions of Led Zeppelin and Queen classics with Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra at the French Quarter Festival. Things were looking grim at first, the rain was pouring and there was a possibility of the show being cancelled. But fortunately the rain stopped just in time for Haley, Irvin, and the NOJO!
Fans who stuck around through the wet weather got to see Haley perform:
“Crazy Little Thing Called Love”
“We Are The Champions”
“Dazed and Confused”
Local news reporter Rob Krieger was there to talk to Haley about the festival and New Orleans: “Not only is it free and everyone gets to come on by, all the neighborhood cats, but we’re right on the Mississippi river and it’s a beautiful view and everyone gets to soak up the view and the food and the music. It’s by far, the coolest city, I think, and I come from a cool city, Chicago, but I live in LA and that’s a cool place, but there’s nothing quite like New Orleans and it’s originality. You guys are super authentic in every aspect, and I really dig it.” (via fox8live.com)
