Springsteen, Tom Petty, The Beach Boys, Cee Lo, more jam at first weekend of New Orleans JazzFest -- PHOTOS

The annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival always inspires unique pairings — Sunday, Dr. John hopped on stage with Bruce Springsteen; John Stamos jammed with the Beach Boys on Friday. In previous years, the surprises have included Trombone Shorty joining Kid Rock, and The Edge playing guitar with The Dave Matthews Band. But the festival is more than the big-name acts — it’s also about food, dance, costumes, and Louisiana culture. The annual event spans two weekends; next week the festival will be webcast live on YouTube, so you can catch the Foo Fighters, Florence + the Machine, Zac Brown Band, and more live from the comfort of your couch. As the first weekend comes to a close, photos will have to do so we’ve put together a bunch for you to enjoy. Happy JazzFest!
