In his initial statement regarding the crackdown on French Quarter and Marigny street musicians, NOPD 8th District Commander Maj. Edwin Hosli told Gambit: "We have been getting several complaints from the citizen groups complaining about the street musicians and the late night loud music."
We requested the names of those groups from Maj. Hosli. He emailed this response:
I consistently received complaints from residents of the 8th District at our monthly NOMPAC meeting regarding loud music. I would invite you to attend our next monthly NOMPAC meeting on July 8, 2010, at 6pm. The meeting is held at the Maison Dupuy Hotel at 1001 Toulouse Street. The meeting is always open to the public and I encourage you to attend.
