FOR TOURISM PROFESSIONALS
Since 2012 New Orleans Music Tours LLC has created unique tour events that inform and entertain. The legends of the birth of Jazz, the first Rock ‘n’ Roll recording and African rhythms are most often thought of as New Orleans music. We then sprinkle in the links from Opera, Gospel, funerals and celebrations in the streets, the lesser known influences on American popular music. The Music Gumbo tour is a 2.5 hour tour that covers it all. It’s a great for adults, family, teens or high-school bands, everyone loves it.
