NEW ORLEANS (January 13, 2014) - January 29, 2014 marks the 20th anniversary for House of Blues New Orleans, the oldest operating venue in the House of Blues family. Having launched the first location in Boston just over a year before, founders Isaac Tigrett and Dan Aykroyd teamed together with a group of celebrity friends to launch the premier restaurant and entertainment venue in New Orleans.

The legendary French Quarter venue has hosted thousands of shows including many by the biggest names in the business including Bob Dylan, Buddy Guy, George Clinton, Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Etta James, Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Nine Inch Nails, Elton John, Better Than Ezra, Dr. John, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, and The Neville Brothers, just to name a few.   

The two decades of House of Blues concerts across all genres of music, such as blues, rock, hip-hop, country, funk, and world music, have created a lifetime of memories for millions of music fans from around the world.

Since opening its doors, House of Blues New Orleans has been more than a destination for live music.  It is home to a newly-rebranded restaurant called "Crossroads at House of Blues" when it joined forces with celebrity Chef Aaron Sanchez in October 2011. The world famous Gospel Brunch, which is now presented by Grammy-Award winning star Kirk Franklin, is a longstanding Sunday tradition. In addition, the venue houses a Company Store, outdoor courtyard, the recently opened street-side bar (Big Mama's Lounge), an intimate performance hall (The Parish) and a members only VIP-style lounge (Foundation Room).

With contributions from Foundation Room Memberships plus individuals and organizations, House of Blues, through the International House of Blues Foundation celebrates more than 20 years and over 20 million dollars in support of music and arts education for youth in New Orleans and our other House of Blues communities.

"We are proud to be a part of the cultural fabric of New Orleans," said Robert Rizzuto, general manager, House of Blues New Orleans. "We look forward to creating twenty more years of entertainment memories for the people of our community and beyond."

House of Blues New Orleans begins celebrating its amazing 20 years this month with in-house offers, ticket giveaways, special promotions, culminating in an Anniversary Bash on Saturday, February 1, featuring food and live entertainment by some of the best performers in New Orleans.  Anniversary Bash details are forthcoming.
