Sunday, May 4, 2014, Laborie came alive as scores of patrons converged at the Rudy John Beach Park and had their senses awakened with great jazz music, food and unmatched scenery.

Starting in 1997, Jazz in the South has built its legacy of excellence with the unique performers from around the Caribbean that have graced their stage. A blend of great Creole Jazz music was in abundance at the park as one by one the entertainers did not disappoint. The free concert started at 3 p.m. and was exciting for all as families and friends danced the afternoon away with the event finishing off in great style leaving everyone wanting more.
