Featuring the Palmetto Bug Stompers and margaritas from Republic Tequila

WHY: The Historic New Orleans Collection's fall concert series continues on Friday, October 19, with a performance by the Palmetto Bug Stompers and margaritas from Republic Tequila.

Now in its fifth year, Concerts in the Courtyard offer an affordable happy-hour experience to kick off the weekend. Each show features live outdoor performances by Louisiana musicians as well as cocktails. The October event will feature the Palmetto Bug Stompers, some of New Orleans's finest purveyors of swinging New Orleans jazz. With a wide and varied background of musical influences, band members include "Washboard" Chaz Leary (washboard and vocals), Bruce Brachman (clarinet), Charlie Halloran (trombone), John Rodli (guitar and vocals), Will Smith (trumpet) and Robert Snow (acoustic bass).

Republic Tequila combines the tradition of Mexico with the spirit of Texas. This ultra-premium tequila is USDA and BioAgriCert certified organic and made with 100% blue agave. Republic Tequila is hand-crafted at the Agave Conquista Distillery in Tequila, Jalisco, the heart of the tequila producing region.

The final show in the fall 2012 Concerts in the Courtyard series will take place Friday, November 16, when Jayna Morgan & the Sazerac Sunrise Jazz Band take the stage.

Admission to Concerts in the Courtyard is $10 for the public, free for members of The Collection, and includes three complimentary cocktails. Memberships begin at $35 and are valid for one year. Guests must be 21 or older to enter. Capacity is limited and the event is designed for a standing audience. Outside chairs, food and beverages are not permitted on the premises.
