  • Wonderful history, amazing music. If you're looking for real New Orleans jazz and not the obnoxious club music all up and down Bourbon St. This is the spot. It's a small space and only a 45 minute...

  • The music was phenomenal. Very professional. But a 45 minute set? Come on. Mind you, seated on hard wooden benches would not have been much fun fir much longer

  • Had the best solo Saturday evening by attending the 7:30 p.m. show. The venue is full of ambiance, love of music, and soul. I love that the Hall supports musicians and also educates future musicians with their foundation. House was packed - so many standing… but I highly recommend purchasing front row if you can. This way you can enjoy a personal experience with the musicians - like you’re in their living room while they play together. The overall experience is about sight and sound but there are these other sensory bits that go with - the smell, the temperature, the textures of it all that add to a one of a kind experience you shouldn’t miss. I will be back for more! Can’t wait!
  • Great band and amazing history. The sound is good inside and the trumpet player sang without a microphone. At a few points the horns get enough volume that you may want some ear protection if sensitive. Make sure to buy your tickets in advance as it sells out almost every show. I would say the place holds about 80 people maximum. The seated option is on a bench and standing room only is on the side or the very back. Get in line early if you want to get a side spot or seated near the front. I was in back row on the right and the trombone player was blocked most of the time with the large post in the middle of the room.
