For some, the days between Jazz Fest weekends are a time to rest up, and a time to explore the other elements that the city of New Orleans has to offer. For others, those who affectionately refer to those three days as the “daze between,” it’s a time to keep the party going, and to seek out more music and more unique combinations of artists that you couldn’t find anywhere else. For music fans looking to fill their time with shows, you won’t find better combination of artists than the group hitting One Eyed Jacks tonight, Wednesday, May 3rd.The group, appropriately named the “Daze Between Band,” boasts an impressive lineup of players from across the musical spectrum. Guitar master Eric Krasno is on the bill, as is Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge. Widespread Panic‘s Duane Trucks will be on drums, Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis will be on keys, and Scott Metzger will fill the second guitar slot, a role he currently occupies in Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. Snarky Puppy percussionist Nate Werth and The Motet singer extraordinaire Lyle Divinsky will also join the musical party. When it comes to Jazz Fest, this is simply as good as it gets. The band will be joined by DJ Soul Sister, who will set the mood with an opening set. The band also expects a few surprise guests to join them throughout the evening.Beyond being strong musical players, this crew is deeply connected through the guidance of Col. Bruce Hampton. Oteil, having been mentored by Col. Bruce through the days of his Aquarium Rescue Unit, and Duane, who grew up with Col. Bruce as an honorary member of the Trucks family, will undoubtedly play to transcend their spiritual leader.
