New Orleans (AP) – A steady, sometimes heavy rain, pelted fans at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, but the music flowed on.

Umbrellas, rain boots, and plastic ponchos were out in abundance Sunday as fans stood among the puddles and water-soaked grass awaiting clearer skies.

As Khris Royal & Dark Matter played the Gentilly Stage, pockets of fest-faithfuls grooved and danced to his funky saxophone opening instrumental. Keith Frank & the Soileau Zydeco Band enticed fans to the front of the nearby Fais Do-Do stage, where a few couples rocked a two-step to the band’s steady beat.

The Nevilles, without brother Aaron, performed later Sunday just before the Dave Matthews Band, which closed the fest’s first weekend and largest stage.
