Or should I say Jazz, or Blues, or Brass?  Whatever you want to call it, the French Quarter is really Rocking with amazing music, beautiful weather and wonderful food!

With 22 stages and over 850 performers it is simply mind blowing and you can’t turn around without hearing music worth listening to.

Last night I heard the Grammy Award winning Rebirth Brass Band performing live and went on to the next stage where things got funky with Papa Grows Funk!

Last year there were over 533,000 in attendance at the French Quarter Festive and this year they added another day so who knows how many will be here.

That doesn’t really matter though.  As Clint Eastwood might say, “The question you have to ask yourself is…  Will you be hear or will you miss one of the most awesome music events of the year?”

Tonight I am topping off my evening of listening with the music of Bonerama!
