A heavy dose of Louisiana rain failed to put a damper on the Dave Matthews Band's weekend-closing performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. 

Nola.com says the soaking wet rockers kept the equally drenched crowd happy Sunday evening with everything from hits like "Ants Marching" to region-appropriate deep cuts like "Louisiana Bayou." 

The 2013 edition of Jazz Fest started Friday with sets from John Mayer, Band of Horses, Gary Clark Jr., and more.  Billy Joel kept things going on Saturday along with Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, Jill Scott, and others. 

Jazz Fest will continue this Thursday with another four days of music from the likes of the Black Keys, Maroon 5 and Phoenix, just to name a few.  The full lineup and other details are available at NOJazzFest.com.
