Bon Jovi joins New Orleans Jazz Fest roster as daily schedule is announced
Posted by Keith Spera, Music writer, The Times-Picayune February 05, 2009

New Orleans, meet New Jersey: Bon Jovi is coming to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival presented by Shell.

The veteran Jersey rock band that lorded over MTV in the 1980s and continues to fill arenas worldwide performs at the Fair Grounds on May 2. That is the biggest surprise on the day-to-day Jazz Fest schedule released today.

The festival's initial talent roster, unveiled in December, included Aretha Franklin. She was slated to precede the Neville Brothers on the final Sunday, May 3. Now a "TBA" is listed in place of Franklin's name.

"We have a change, an addition and an I-don't-know," Jazz Fest producer/director Quint Davis said of the schedule changes. "The change is Julian Marley (substituting) for Toots & the Maytals. The addition is Bon Jovi.

Soul Dinner Cancelled...

Monday, February 2, 2009

So, as The Goddess posted on her blog, the charity dinner at the Hard Rock has been cancelled. I found this posted on the Philadelphia Soul Website. Apparently the rumor on Backstage isn't a rumor at all, but the ugly truth.

Hard Rock Event Scheduled for Feb. 26th Cancelled

The Soul announced today that due to a number of circumstances beyond our control the event planned for February 26th is being cancelled. All attendees for whom we had a record have been contacted via email. If you had purchased a seat to the event, and did not receive an email please email

I'm sorry to all of you who were coming from far and wide for this event. I hope somehow you at least get reimbursed for your ticket.


New Jersey Hall of Fame Inductees...

NJ to Jon Bon: You give us a good name
By ANGELA DELLI SANTI • Associated Press Writer • February 2, 2009

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- A note from New Jersey to Jon Bon Jovi: You may have been snubbed by the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, but you're still wanted in the Garden State.

Bon Jovi and 12 others -- including NBA star Shaquille O'Neal and civil rights activist Paul Robeson -- were named to the New Jersey Hall of Fame on Monday. The honor is meant to highlight positive contributions made to a state often stereotyped as a land of corrupt politicians, belching refineries and gangsters.

"This group of hall of famers embodies the spirit of New Jersey, a combination of drive, determination and creativity that has led them to greatness," Gov. Jon Corzine said in a statement.

The winners were chosen by New Jersey residents, who had months to pick their favorites online, and by the hall's voting academy, made up of 100 state organizations. All inductees have deep ties to the state.

Other inductees to the hall's second class include funnymen Bud Abbott and Lou Costello; astronomer Carl Sagan; Yankee shortstop Phil Rizzuto; novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald; poet Walt Whitman; comedian Jerry Lewis; tennis star Althea Gibson; inventor Guglielmo Marconi; and writer William Carlos Williams.

Failing to make the cut this year were actor Jack Nicholson, President Woodrow Wilson, musician Count Basie and novelist Philip Roth.

Bon Jovi, a New Jersey native, is building affordable housing in Newark and other cities through his charitable foundation. Robeson, a celebrated scholar, athlete and performer, was among the first African-American students at Rutgers University.

"The New Jersey hall should serve as a reminder that the people of New Jersey strive for excellence and engage in myriad productive and rewarding activities that help society and give back to mankind," Corzine said.

Congratulations to all the inductees this year!!
