New Orleans Magazine Cabaret Stage at Palm Court Jazz Cafe

The drummer (Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes, Rory Danger & the Danger Dangers) dials it down from 11 with a solo set of classical music on piano.

Abita Beer Stage
The New Orleans native (famous for the 1971 soul classic "Mr. Big Stuff," arranged by New Orleans producer Wardell Quezergue) released a string of '60s singles on Jet Stream and Tribe Records before her breakout Stax hit. She entered the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2007.
