New Orleans Musical Heritage

After spending a few days with the family back in New Orleans, its always refreshing to think on how much of an outpouring that great American city has left upon our musical heritage.

The city lives and breathes music as its such a mix of culture and history that you really don't feel as if you are in the United States. If you haven't been, what the hell are you waiting for, Geaux NOLA!
