The Arkansas Times Jazz Bus

Posted By on Fri, Feb 11, 2011 at 12:20 PM


After the success of the Arkansas Times Blues Bus trip to Helena to watch King Biscuit, we've set our sights on a significantly larger festival, JazzFest in New Orleans.

We're going for the first weekend, the one that's a truer reflection of New Orleans with more local music on the bill and more manageable crowds. Which is not to say that it lacks big names. Among the headliners: Robert Plant and Band of Joy, The Avett Brothers, John Legend and the Roots, Irma Thomas, Bon Jovi, Wyclef, Dr. John, Mumford and Sons, The Decemberists, Jeff Beck, John Mellencamp, Robert Cray, Kenny G.

We're leaving early Friday morning, April 29, and scheduled to arrive in New Orleans at 5 p.m. and coming back mid-morning on Monday (we'll let you nurse your hangover a bit) scheduled to be in Little Rock around 8 p.m.

Tickets include transportation, lunch on the way down and three nights in the Holiday Inn French Quarter. All for $675. If you're flying solo, you have to pay $289 more to offset the cost of occupying a hotel room alone.

Reserve your seat today by calling 501-375-2985. If demand is as high as it was for the Blues Bus, we'll likely sell out early.
