New Orleans Gets Ready For The Bayou Blues Festival

When you think of New Orleans, certain images come to mind: elaborate ironwork in the Quarter, crayfish bubbling away in a pot, po’ boys nestled next to a mound of dirty fries, and most of all, music. Our city is filled with music of all kinds, 24 hours a day, every day of the year.  

Each fall, we celebrate another chapter of our musical heritage when the Bayou Blues Festival kicks off at the University of New Orleans Lakefront Arena. This is no dusty outdoor picnic. Instead, it’s an indoor, sit-down event with a parade of old-school blues and R&B acts in their dress-up clothes, playing for an audience that appreciates the effort and responds in kind.
Headliners this year include Clarence Carter, a familiar face at Jazz Fest, and R&B singer Bobby Womack. Watch a video of Bobby’s Across 110th Street here. Betty Wright will also be on hand as will Deniece Williams, whose hit Let’s Hear It for the Boy brought the “Footloose” soundtrack to life.  

The Festival will be held on Saturday, October 5th at 7:30 pm, and tickets are available through Ticketmaster. Prices start at $49. There will be a $10 parking charge as well, and the Arena is a non-smoking facility. Designated smoking areas are located outside at Ramp 3 and Ground 1. Note also that in order to protect everyone’s safety, there will be restrictions on what items can be brought inside the arena and all patrons will be subject to a security search.
With all of this great music, some truly amazing neighborhoods, and a tradition of fantastic food, there’s no place I’d rather live than New Orleans. Let me help you make it your home, too. Give me a call at the office at 504-383-9061 or on my mobile at 504-419-8395. You’re also welcome to send me an email at I’m at your service for all of your New Orleans real estate needs.
