Experience the real deal music in the birthplace of Jazz


Traditional jazz? Brass Band music? Swing ? Straight Ahead Jazz? - we've go it all! New Orleans is world renowned for it's music, let's go experience it. I will meet you at your hotel or another agreed upon location. If the sun is still up, we'll go to an important historical site first, it is not a music venue, but very important to the history of New Orleans music- it's closed after sunset. Then we will go to hear some music. Perhaps we'll hit a couple of clubs or listen to some brass band playing in the streets. If you would like we can hit a club with the best food on Frenchmen Street - where the locals are. I know a lot of musicians and wonderful venues. These clubs are most likely to NOT be on Bourbon Street and maybe way off the beaten path. I can guarantee we'll find some outstanding music. Laissez les bons temps rouler- let the good times roll!

Itinerary

Daylight permitting we'll go to historical site first.
While walking I will share history of New Orleans music and other information.
Then we will go to some clubs. Since the music calendar is often updated at the last minute, I cannot say exactly which clubs we will go to but I try for at least two distinct venues. There can be up to 30 minutes walking - I'll make it entertaining!

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Your hotel lobby or another agreed upon location

End location: at your hotel lobby.

Duration: 2 hours 30 min.

Transportation

We'll walk! Please know that there can be up to 20 minutes of walking. While we are walking I will make it informative. I will try and take you to at least two venues. If you are staying in the French Quarter we can rendezvous at your hotel. If you are staying elsewhere we can make other arrangements on where to meet.

What’s Included

I know the New Orleans music scene intimately. In the beginning of the evening we can discuss your musical interests and make the best choices for you. My knowledge of the options will inform our decision. I will talk about the history of New Orleans from the musical perspective.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

25 USD - $25 is a rough estimate of what you may spend on a night out listening to music.
I have figured $15 for drinks and $10 for a door charge. Prices may change depending on what venue we go. Live music is VERY affordable in New Orleans- some venues are even free. When we meet up in the beginning of the evening we will choose the best option for your taste!
