Can you get on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras if you are 18? Not to drink. But just to go out with friends?
My friends are 21+ and I am going as the designated driver. But do the police baracade the streets like they do on Beale Street in Memphis?
you can walk around basically if you are any age…some bars might not let you in, but they usually let girls in anywhere.
Listen to Nalts on the megaphone and throwing beads to those who bear the fruit…

Christopher Stephen Botti or Chris Botti [BOH-tee] (born October 12, 1962) is an American trumpeter and composer. Born in Portland, Oregon and raised in Corvallis, Oregon, he spent two years of his childhood growing up in Italy. His earliest musical influence was his mother, a classically trained pianist and part-time piano teacher.
He plays a Martin Committee Handcraft trumpet made in 1940, and uses a 3 silver plated mouthpiece from Bach made in 1926, having recently retired his 1920 3C Bach mouthpiece. He counts Miles Davis among his most significant influences.
Botti attended Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon where he studied under Larry McVey whose renowned jazz program had come to be a regular stop for Stan Kenton and Mel Tormé when they were looking for new players. It was here he played alongside his friend, trombonist and future Academy Award nominated filmmaker, Todd Field.
After leaving Mount Hood, Botti studied under David Baker and Bill Adam at Indiana University.

The lyrics to Moon Over Bourbon Street by Sting.
This is what Sting has to say in his lyrics book:
“Anne Rice’s ‘Interview with the Vampire’ was the direct inspiration for this song, but there was a moonlit night in the French Quarter of New Orleans where I had the distinct impression that I was being followed” (Sting 111).
