Live Music 7 Nights a Week

In New Orleans, you can "do whatcha wanna" any night of the week, whether it's stopping in for a cool jazz show or getting funky at the Maple Leaf Bar. Here are just a few choices for New Orleans live music options:

This French Quarter classic has been an instrumental part of preserving jazz heritage since opening in 1961. The house band plays all over the world for the same reason.

Chicken and Waffles at The Maison 
If you are taking a stroll down Frenchmen Street, stop by the Maison. A majority of their shows are free, so just walk in, grab a drink and enjoy the jazz music.


Big Al Carlson at the Funky Pirate
