Our music tour of New Orleans begins just outside the French Quarter at the historic and beautiful Louis Armstrong Park in the Tremé neighborhood. Within the park, we talk about the historical origins of jazz and discuss one of the jazz greats, Armstrong himself.
In New Orleans, there's always the opportunity for an element of surprise. We'll be on the lookout for impromptu street performances, which always make the night special. And if the timing and mood is right, we'll get behind the scenes with one of the bands in between sets.
In addition to getting your groove on and enjoying the sights and sounds of Frenchmen Street, we'll end the tour at the nightly art market. This is another lively spot where the city's artists show off their best work, from handmade sculptures to local photography.
