Jerry Lee Lewis, Jazz Fest 2015
Jerry Lee Lewis at Jazz Fest, Saturday, May 2, 2015
Jerry Lee Lewis seemed just as awed by the crowd in front of the Acura Stage as they were by the 79-year-old first-generation rocker from Ferriday, Louisiana.
“We got a flock o' people here,” he observed.
Linda Gail, Jerry Lee's sister, actually opened the set and performed for 15 minutes or so before Jerry Lee strode on stage with a little help from a cane.
Annie Marie, who sang Little Richard's Rip It Up, told the crowd, “It's gonna be a family show today.” Annie is Linda's daughter and Jerry's niece.
Here's "The Killer" with his band on the "Piano Heaven" Acura Stage.
