Please book lots of acts that I hate. We just booked our room for French Quarter Fest, and the Jazzfest FOMS is going to kill me this year.
Harry Belafonte, Time Jumpers (Vince Gill, Ranger Doug,et al), Mississippi Mass Choir (new CD coming out---with local soloists, would be the show of a lifetime) Bobby Jones Nashville Super Choir--these two should be on a big stage!, Jesse Cook, Jools Holland Big Band, Hans Theessink, Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa, Barry Mann/Dave Alvin/Paul Thorn/Todd Snider/Raol Malo/Lindsey Buckingham/Richard Thompson/Jesse Winchester --all solo, Chris Isaak,Kim Carnes, T-Bone Burnett, Sam Moore, Shalomar, Southern Culture On The Skids, Boz Scaggs, Paul Simon, Ricki Lee Jones, Cat Stevens (? still on no-fly list,) Planet Rockers, Rick Estrin and the Nightcats, Jimmy Hall, Kenny Bill Stinson . Anybody from Deke Dickerson's Guitar Geek Festival,Duane Eddy, Tommy Emmanuel. Somebody stop me!
I love the way you think ! Keep going...

OK.. How about Anat Cohen, Annie Lennox, a Kinks reunion, Ringo,del Castillo, Wynonna Judd and Howard Levy? And some more of the R&B revivalists. Now I'm stopped,but still stooped.
A few ideas from Minnesota:
Pert Near Sandstone
Davina and the Vagabonds
A few BNAs-kind-of:
Grace Potter & the Nocturnals
A few not so BNAs:
Punch Brothers with Chris Thile
Justin Townes Earle
Joanne Shaw Taylor
Heritage Blues Orchestra
A few favorites, but a bit of a stretch for JazzFest:
Ray Wylie Hubbard
Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers
The Budos Band
Please explain how the Alabama Shakes are Otis Redding reincarnated.
