07-19-2000Blues Traveler to finally return to New Orleans; Stolen Ogre to play for Northwest Burn Foundation

According to a web site for the band Live, Blues Traveler is one of a dozen bands slated to play the Voodoo Music Festival in New Orleans, LA on October 28th of this year. The gig will mark the first time the band has played together in Bobby Sheehan's adopted hometown since a May 1st, 1997 slot at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest. The band was considering the JazzFest again this year but decided against it in favor of more time in rehearsal. Among the other artists scheduled to appear are HORDE alums Ben Harper, Guster, 311 and Cypress Hill, as well as Live, Stone Temple Pilots, Counting Crows, Eminem and Black Eyed Peas. Check back at the festival's website, www.voodoomusicfest.com for more details once the site is up and running. Last year's festival included over twenty artists plus "special guests", so more information is sure to be forthcoming.

Not to be outdone, Stolen Ogre has issued a press release regarding their upcoming gig a month from now.
