NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – The exhilarating thrill performing at The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival can only be felt by musicians who take the stage.

Until now.

WGNO goes backstage at Jazz Fest 2014, inside that extraordinary moment with Dat Boi Cue.

“It’s like my wildest dreams have finally come true,” says Cue moments before going on.

Dat Boi Cue is with Judah Clan Productions out of Treme where he plans to step his musical career up to the next level.

Meantime, he says  Jazz Fest is where New Orleans musicians strive to be at, the ultimate proving ground, “Right here is like the World Series of the music world. Hope you’re ready.”

Born Cuentin Stewart, the 26 year old hip hop/ reggae/ musical wiz plays this opening day Jazz Fest gig with Kirk Joseph’s Backyard Grove.

“I’m loving the crowd,” says Dat Boi Cue as he’s taking the stage.  “It’s awesome. I’m about to bust their behinds.”

Cue knows the significance this performance means, which could open doors and propel  his career… if he nails it.

Which he did!

“No greater feeling in the world,” he says exhausted after the show.  “I wouldn’t trade that for nothing, man.”
