Is Harry Connick Jr really and truly from New Orleans as he claims to be or is he a liar? I mean do people from New Orleans believe he's a native of their city? And what's more, do honest people from New Orleans really and truly believe that his father was the DA there? I don't!

Is this a conspiracy theory? Why?

Harry Connick Jr. was born in New Orleans. That would mean that he's actually not just 'from' New Orleans but that he's a native.

Why would you not believe that his father was a DA there (for 29 years)? Oh, and his mother was judge who died of cancer when Harry was 13. Harry's parents owned a record store. You can actually research this stuff and dispel your weird conspiracy theory.

He started playing with a New Orleans jazz band at the age of 10.

Regardless, what does Harry Connick's birthplace have to do the Jazz Festival line-up?

Who cares what the honest people of New Orleans believe! I wonder what dishonest people from New Orleans really and truly believe? lol I think "I Smell Poop" is smelling himself, time a bath.

Sounds like a great lineup!
