Essence Festival brought thousands of people to New Orleans this past weekend for three days of music and more. With so many fans in town, it’s no surprise that plenty of venues around town played host to after shows and other auxiliary events. One of these celebrations was Essence of the Soul Festival, which took over the Carver Theater on Saturday, July 1. Performers included Casme, Earnest Pugh, Briana Babineaux and many more. Corey Ware was on hand to capture some photos of the show.
