Bourbon Street New Orleans in the Daytime. This is a walking tour in three segments. Recorded June of 2007. I screwed something up so the credit at the end isn’t really at the end. I know it is my fault but I still don’t know how I did it.

Born in New Orleans on February 20th, 1958, Leroy began studying the trumpet at age 10, in school band. By the time he was 13 years old, he was already playing gigs and leading Danny Barker’s young Fairview Baptist Church Brass Band. The Fairview Band performed at church events, Social & Pleasure Club events, Funerals, and Second Line Parades all over the city of New Orleans. The band has performed at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Smithsonian Institute Festival of Culture & Folklore. The Fairview band later evolved into the Hurricane Brass Band, which became the seed of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
Leroy was a significant figure amongst the new breed of aspiring young musicians participating in Barker’s renaissance of New Orleans brass bands.
After a very brief stint in the Jazz Studies Program at Loyola University’s Conservatory of Music, joined the musicians union and went on to pursue his career as a professional musician. He has played with nearly all the famous jazz bands in town, and has performed at festivals and clubs throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, South America, Southeast Asia, Japan and Australia.
The past decade has been a member of the Harry Connick, Jr. Orchestra, performed on numerous recordings with various artists, leads one of the Preservation Hall Jazz Bands and has two critically acclaimed solo releases, “Mo’ Cream From The Crop” and “Props for Pops” on the Sony/Columbia label. continues to travel and record the world over.

The Bourbon Orleans has the 2 story suites. Its a very nice place to stay.
I really liked NOLA when I visited in 2004 an am coming again for my 25th birthday (2/5) and Mardi Gras this year and have been interested in moving there for a few years now. I currently live in San Diego and grew up in the SF Bay Area and I feel I need to live outside of CA b/c I’ve been here my whole life and want to experiance something new and far different from here, even though i do love this place. I have a degree in Urban Studies and Planning and currently have only worked in transportation planning the past 3 years. I really would like to do urban planning and development and thought NOLA would be a good place for that because of the redevelopment there. Does anyone know if there are a lot of good urban planning jobs? Is the pace of recovery starting to pick up or is it kind of piecemeal still? I really would love to help this city recover but I’m not sure where to start? Would like to get an urban planning job and maybe do grad school or something.
Also does anyone know what professional jobs pay there? I currently make $45k a year and would like a similar salary b/c rent in the good parts of NOLA don’t seem that much cheaper than what I pay now in SD. The problem is I have no working experiance in land use planning or development but just transportation planning.
There are intense labor shortages in the medical, legal, & retail fields, most trades, and in the service industry.
However, you should line up a job BEFORE you move here.
The City of New Orleans appears to have several “city planning” positions vacant: http://www.cityofno.com/portal.aspx?portal=1&tabid=121 but I can’t tell if they are current vacancies.
You should contact the City Planning Commission and ask – hey also may know of positions with other government agencies: http://www.cityofno.com/Portals/Portal52/portal.aspx
The agency that is recruiting most heavily in New Orleans is the police department: https://secure.cityofno.com/portal.aspx?portal=50&tabid=44
