Bourbon Street (Rue Bourbon)

This video is a tribute to the late great Mike Reynolds, the piano accordion showman extraordinaire for Planete Folle Band from 1993 to 2008. May your music live on in our memories, Mike! Bourbon Street is a tribute to the famous party street in New Orleans. It has three verses in English and three verses in French that say the same things about the music, dance, romance, and the unique cuisine of New Orleans and the Louisiana Bayou. It was written in 1993, a year after Vic Sadot travelled to New Orleans and the Acadiana region along the Gulf Coast. The song was released in 1997 by Vic Sadot’s Planete Folle Band on a CD titled “Comin’ Home”. Mike Reynolds plays the joyful accordion. Earle Brown plays the soaring saxophone, and Dennis Hertzog plays the dancing fiddle. Dave Sumner provides the hot sauce for the recipe with his sizzling guitar. The legendary Chris Sherlock is on playing his signature drums. That steady rocking bass is Monty Cullum. Allons danser! (Let’s go dance!) Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!) Many of our Cajun/Zydeco heroes appear in this video from Louisiana and the San Francisco Bay Area. Alan OBrien is the 2008 bass player helping the young boy learn to play the scrub board. I had no photo of Earle Brown. My apology to you wherever you are. Earle played briefly for Planete Folle while visiting his mother in Wilmington, DE. Last we heard was that he went back to New Orleans and was with a hot travelling band. Thats another Planete Folle sax player named Fulani Davis in a photo from July 4, 2000. This video is dedicated to our buddy and band-mate Michael Reynolds of Blackwood, New Jersey with best wishes and fond memories to his wife Eileen and his sons Mike and Kevin. Mike’s sister Jane is taking the lead in preserving Mikes music and photographic memorabilia. Contact Vic at broadsideballadeer@gmail if you have anything to contribute to preserving the music and memory of our friend Mike. We love you, Mike! Keep on rockin’ in the spirit world!

Best way to to visit the French Quarter and Bourbon Street?

Me and my friends are going to plan a weekend road trip to New Orleans.None of us have ever been to New Orleans. We like to drink and have a good time. We also want to visit Bourbon St. What is the best way to do this? Hotel suggestions? Any transportation to Bourbon St? Taxi prices? Must do or see things?. We are trying to do this as cheep as possible, but any help is appreciated.

I can’t add much to who dat’s answer except I like the Hotel St. Marie. It’s inexpensive (about $60 a night), clean, and it has a pool. It’s like so close to Bourbon St. it’s crazy. I don’t know if they have parking, I never drive there. Their sister hotel is the St. Pierre up the street. Also inexpensive but no pool.
Have fun!!!
