Did you know there's an exciting musical festival happening at the Natchitoches Riverbank this Saturday?

After moving to Louisiana, I find myself going to Natchitoches because there is always something exciting going on — from the fabulous Christmas festival to the historical downtown, there is always something fun to do — and this weekend is no exception.

The Natchitoches Jazz/R&B Festival is one of the biggest annual music events in central Louisiana and this year it will feature the likes of Neal McCoy, Peter Rivera from Rare Earth, Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers, The Back in Black - AC/DC cover band, and so much more.

I’m a huge fan of Neal McCoy and it’s basically putting two of my favorite things in one. Live music (with one of the best live performers I’ve ever seen) and a fun ambience, which is never in short supply in Natty. After a year like 2020, this is what we have so desperately needed. The lineup is phenomenal and it’s a guaranteed party.
