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.
The legendary clarinetist Pete Fountain performs with cornetist Connie Jones’ French Quarter Festival All-Stars. Also, Otis Bazoon on sax, Tim Laughlin on clarinet, Rick Trolsen on trombone, David Boeddinghaus on piano, Bryan Barberot on drums. I forget the bassist’s name. Intro by Ronnie Kole. The opening tune is “Clarinet Marmalade”, with “St. Louis Blues” in the second part. What a way to kick off French Quarter Fest 2009!

“BOURBON STREET PARADE” was recorded by a public TV in the last performance of clarinetist Tito Martino with the Traditional Jazz Band, just before he changed his residence to Swiss in 1983. Martino started, named and lead the Traditional Jazz Band for 20 years. This is certainly one of the best performances of this band, one which all their members can feel proud of. At this time, Carlos Lima was at trumpet (he’s out now) Bruno Christen trombone (he is now living in Swiss) Tito Martino clarinet, sop.sax, altosax and leader, Edo Callia piano, Dudu Bugni banjo and guitar, Carlos Chaim bass, and Alcides Lima drums and washboard. Tito came back to São Paulo in 1993 and plays with his new group, the TITO MARTINO JAZZ BAND.
