Does anyone have any suggestions on places to visit in New Orleans?

Places for good live music, jazz, of course, music stores, pawn shops....I'm staying here for work for the next month or so and would love to know the best spots to go from people that might know more then yelp:)

thanks for the recommendation !
Ill check Tuba Skinny out! they are playing Wednesdays at the starlight.

Honestly the biggest problem I have is that there is live Jazz here 24 hours a day 7 days a week , prioritizing it all is a challenge..
hope I don't have to actually work much.

I was just there the first week of Feb. Spent all my time in the French Quarter.Saw TS at d.b.a. on Frenchmen St. The Starlight was very intimate. Louisiana Music Store is fun. Royal St. during the day has lots of music on the street and Bourbon St. is wild at night. Ate lots of beignets and charbroiled oysters. Had a great time!

Snug Harbor is where you see the real thing. World class music.

We've also seen a few great shows at The Little Gem. D.B.A. and Frenchman Street is reliable, you'll find something great.

Ashlin Parker is a fantastic trumpet player and I have seen him everywhere down in New Orleans. He is a monster and you'll be glad you saw him if you can catch him! We saw him once with the elder Marsalis on piano and Jason Marsalis on drums and let me tell you, they were incredible.

Tuba Skinny is amazing and easy to find.

The legendary Kermit Ruffins is a great time, if he shows up ready to play...

And of course, Rebirth Brass Band is a must-see.

Good luck!

ETA: Also forgot, the best late night food is at Coop's Place! Get the rabbit jambalaya and a cold beer!

Well Turkle, I took your advise and went to Kermits place and it was an Amazing night, such a great Place... three bands, James Williams , Irvin Mayfield , Kermits band with many musicians sitting in all night, Kermit played great, his red beans and rice killed it and I can't wait to go back...

went to the D.B.A. after that and watched the Lagniappe Brass Band for a while before we tapped out.

Tuba Skinny Tomorrow!

That is great to hear, cheers! The BBQ Swingers are an institution. Brings back some great, hazy memories... Hope you get some of that rabbit jambalaya....
