New Orleans is More Than Just Jazz!
Many people think of Jazz when they think of New Orleans. This is, of course, understandable. We host the annual Jazz Fest, one of the best in the world, and NOLA is the birthplace of Jazz. But that's not the only music that we have, not by a long shot!
You Will Enjoy All Types of Music in the Big Easy!
The one thing that you can expect from a visit to New Orleans is to hear a ton of great music. Everything from Jazz greats like Louis Armstrong to Zydeco and everything in between. Our walking tour spans about two hours, and during this time you will enjoy the best New Orleans has to offer when it comes to musical history that spans multiple genres.
Treme rose to pop culture prominence after Katrina with the hit HBO show that showed just how vibrant the NOLA music scene is. This tour through Treme is also a great opportunity to learn more about one of the longest-standing African American neighborhoods in the country. This area has been an important part of New Orleans' history for 300 years!
So the next time you think that all the music in NOLA is Jazz, think again. While there is a rich jazz tradition here, it's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fantastic musical styles and genres.
Sign up for our Music of NOLA tour and spend an afternoon listening to some great music and learning about one of the most fascinating areas of New Orleans.
