Fun for all ages
This article provides ten ways to get the best musical experience out of your time in New Orleans, including free options. We cover ways to find the best music in and out of the French Quarter, indoor and outdoor, recorded and live, traditional and innovative. Because we have so much live music, a calendar can be a huge help. WWOZ, our local listener-supported heritage station, can be a great planning tool. The station provides a comprehensive daily schedule of local live music called the WWOZ Livewire, announced on air every odd hour and also listed online. It provides a map showing where music is happening near you and also allows you to filter the list by style — providing a list of jazz, blues, funk, zydeco, or whatever else tickles your fancy.
