        Vince Gill is very talented, they just don't sound like The Eagles. To me The Eagles had Glenn Frey, Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner & Don Felder in the band.

                  Having grown up in NJ, in the early 80s we could not believe this local bar band Bon Jovi, who we thought sucked, was actually getting popular. They made the jump so quickly. Never understood what people saw in them although Jon seems like a nice guy. I met him once at the famous recording studio The Power Station in NYC where his cousin Tony Bongiovi owned and he worked at as did a friend of mine. Didn't they play Jazz Fest once before? Nice safe pick for Quint I guess.

                      I believe Bon Jovi has played twice, 2009 and 2011.

                      The first time they played things got pretty nasty here with many, including me, being very vocal about our dislike for that selection and what it meant about the future of Fest. In retrospect, I have to say that I learned a lot about my own musical snobbery then, especially when I saw how it was received by people I liked who were Bon Jovi fans.

                      I have tried to change that since. I'm still not a fan of their music and would not see them, but Jon definitely seems like a good guy (and I *think* he's a big part of the attraction for many if not most of their fans).

                        Haha. My thoughts exactly. Looks like not until 2023 for that other guy.

                          Not a fan but in retrospect there are some much worse bookings than them. Lorde, Pitbull, Katy Perry, Lizzo......... Quint's gotta keep those turnstiles spinnin'!

                            I believe the first Bon Jovi booking was before all of those, and kind of heralded that direction, for exactly the reason you mention.

                            Oh, and I like Lizzo.

                              Lorde was a real catch though, since she played JF just before she got mega-huge.

                              Worst JF booking ever was JD & the Straight Shot, the vanity project of industry honcho James Dolan. Apparently the Fest had to take them to get Fleetwood Mac. Only time I've ever seen the Acura stage absolutely deserted in prime time.

                                Being a Knicks fan I am all too familiar with Dolan. Yeah hard to think of a worse booking than that (sorry JD&TSS fan(s)!!!).
