  • Steamboat Willie

    Steamboat Willie plays in the Cafe Beignet courtyard on Bourbon Street. It was so nice to listen to them in the courtyard under the stars. They are alot of fun and there is no cover charge or any pressure to buy drinks. It is free to sit and listen to some amazing jazz. But they do appreciate the tips! Say hi to their black dog, he appreciates tips/treats too!

    Performance Art

    Almost everywhere you go in New Orleans there is music. It's not just on Bourbon Street. This was a cold windy December Saturday, and yet these performers were playing on the levee near the French Market for tips. A little farther along next to a restaurant in a little park there was a band performing. And then when we took the streetcar out Canal Street, there was another little band at an art fare.

    Visiting New Orleans, you will have plenty of opportunities to experience live music. You can visit jazz clubs on Bourbon Street, or you can just stumble across it on the street. The photo shows musicians playing in Jackson Square.

    Jazz Funeral

    Jazz was born in New Orleans. There is probably no city in Americ that is as strong as a magnet for jazz talent... those one-of-a-kind composers, musicians and singers who have blended and shaped this music form... as New Orleans.

    Listen to jazz music. This is the birthplace of jazz.
    Rows upon rows of jazz bars and honky tonk pubs. If you're a party animal, and love to have a drink or two whilst listening to toe-tapping music, this place is just sensational! Just feel free to wander around the street and come inside the smoke-filled rooms, if you like what you hear from the streets. Most of these bars have balconies upstairs. Head up there and enjoy the music and the view!

    We went to the Old Opera house during the day. They had 3 for one specials (unheard of in NY) and had an amazing band playing Zydeko. Was awesome- you can watch/listen to them for hours.

    When in Rome, do as the Romans did... when in New Orleans, go out at night and enjoy a Jazz band. This old guy was the life of the band!
