For the Love of New Orleans: “M” is for Music

Hee Haw, American Bandstand, and Soul Train. Clearly, I was exposed to good music growing up in small-town Alabama. The 70’s and 80’s had the best country and classic rock and still does if you ask anyone at my house.

But the fact I also know Lawrence Welk and I were born on the same day sixty-three years apart can only mean one thing—-I grew up watching the Lawrence Welk Show. I still have a soft spot for Big Band music.

While I can appreciate almost every kind of music, I have an unparalleled  fondness for Jazz that I owe to our time spent in New Orleans.

You’ll see and hear all kinds of live music as you stroll through the French Quarter. Some of it draws a crowd. Most of it’s good. All of it is part of what makes a visit to the Quarter a memorable experience.
