The 2014 French Quarter Festival took place on a beautiful weekend... But it's been all rain and cold and work and traffic ever since.

Maybe you missed Gal Holiday belt out "That's How I Ride" because you were waiting in line for crawfish bread. Maybe you didn't catch Little Freddie King bang out "Cleo's Back" because you lost track of the time on the river, or ran to Gene's to get a daiquiri. Maybe you missed Dr. John because there were too many people! Or maybe you caught every act you intended to see, and now are twitching from FQF withdrawals (or shivering in the chill).

It's why WWNO and NolaVie put together the Best of French Quarter Fest 2014 Playlist, to help you fill the "fill in the blank" and to keep you moving on a Wednesday afternoon.

Don't miss Ian Cook's FQF Virtual Gallery.
