Join us on this unique New Orleans’ music tour! Located in the Treme neighborhood, Armstrong Park is named after one of the most famous jazz musicians in the world and one of New Orleans’ most beloved sons: Louis Armstrong. Starting underneath the park’s famed lighted arched entrance, we’ll explore the area originally known as Congo Square – one of the first locations in the city where enslaved people and free people of color were allowed to gather and socialize. You’ll hear about jazz’s origins, resulting from a rich mix of cultures in a single city, which combined West African and Caribbean sounds with European musical influences – giving us this uniquely American artform. You won’t stop there! Next, your local guide will bring jazz history to life by selecting a specially curated route to hear the best the music scene has to offer. You could make your way past Preservation Hall and the historic French market or head to the famous Frenchman Street, the largest concentration of live music venues in the city. Even stop for a drink on us! Whatever your musical interests, you’ll end this tour with a new appreciation for American music, New Orleans’ famous residents, and the art and sounds of jazz.
