Almost everyday you can hear Jazz in New Orleans French Quarter live, real, authentic right out there in the streets. These performers are especially ubiquitous on the weekends.
Now, this ain’t some fake stuff, put out there for the tourists. Not subsidized by the city like some Disney version of New Orleans. Nope. These folks are for real playing for the pleasure of it and to make a little extra dough on the side.
Rockin’ with Dixieland Jazz in New Orleans French Quarter
I’ve seen some of the most incredible musicians playing on the streets of New Orleans. Some have regular gigs in clubs and such and come out to share their music with the world. Some just want to be part of the whole story and honor the music and play jazz in the French Quarter where it all started.
