The Black Crowes, Widespread Panic, The Neville Brothers, The Original Meters, And Dozens Of Other Artists To Offer Live Recordings At This Year's New Orleans Jazz Fest
MunckMix, Inc., of Chicago, IL, the official recording licensee of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival's "Jazz Fest Live" recording series, is proud to announce the roster of artists participating in the 2005 "Jazz Fest Live" offering. Among the artists who will offer live recordings of their performances are The Black Crowes, The Original Meters Reunion, Widespread Panic, and New Orleans music icons The Neville Brothers. The extensive list of "Jazz Fest Live" recordings available can be seen and purchased on CDs and downloads at www.jazzfestlive.com.
New this year is the ability for fans to purchase the recordings anytime during the festival directly from the "Jazz Fest Live" booth on the fairgrounds. The recordings will be mixed and mastered by MunckMix engineers within hours of each performance, and CDs are then manufactured on site and available for pickup the following day. In addition to on-site delivery, every recording, including dozens of recordings from last year's festival, is also available for shipment at www.jazzfestlive.com.
"This year we're very excited to offer festival goers the opportunity to buy CDs from a show they attended - or missed - directly at the festival in our Jazz Fest Live booth," said MunckMix founder Peer Munck. "While you can still order everything on CDs and downloads over the web at www.jazzfestlive.com, we think many music fans will want to get their hands on the recordings at the fairgrounds so they can re-experience the outstanding Jazz Fest performances as soon as possible. Along with the great music we'll be capturing from this year's festival, we'll also be fully stocked with CDs from the 2004 festival."
