The People and Musicians of New Orleans

The greatest and most well-known aspect of New Orleans is the constant presence of street musicians. Unlike NYC, here there are full bands, sometimes there are spontaneous pop-up bands. It just seems that if you are in an area with no music being played, go a block over and there soon will be. Lots of them are out there peddling their music in hopes of getting representation, notoriety, or just heard by the masses. And while walking around you get to hear this and see peoples’ reactions to it. Plus you get some interesting characters to see.

Not a musician, but it is a representative of NOLA.
