Many People have been asking me will Brexit affect Whats Happening on Frenchmen Street?My reply is not at the Moment.People from The E.U. and Britain are all welcome and we will glad take your Euro’s or Pounds(Preferable Pounds) So you can just go ahead and enjoy that almost French City of New Orleans.Just don’t expect to find any Soccer Games on Here(Unless you ask one of the nice Bartenders Nicely).
Wanna be the Envy of Your Friends? Are you Hip and Have some extra Dollars To save Momma Nola? Been here all Your Life and Just Deal with It? It’s a well Known Fact that New Orleans is Sinking.I have been here all My Life and have Learned To Deal with It. My Mind is able to remember streets with Holes so That next Time i’m on the Street it’s Like reflex swirving around The Hole or Slowing Down.A huge hole opened up on Canal Street Here recently exposing a Tunnel that ran under the Street.Many Locals Celebrated Sink Hole De Mayo around It. You can send your Money To The City of New Orleans They will be put it To Good Use(Im Sure).Got any Good Nola Pot Hole Pictures Feel Free To send Them In!

Looks Like 2 New Joints will be opening On Frenchmen.You Got Dat Dogs working on Building a Hot Dog Restaurant on The Corner next to Apple Barrel.And What Used to be the Old Labourde printing Co. Building gonna be turning into a Fine Dining establishment.It was Supposed to open as Bamboola’s Last Year But was shot Down by the Zoning Commission.If it has Music That remains to be seen.Hopefully they will have entertainment and put another 20-30 Musicians to work.
Yes The simple Days of just Locals is waining Fast!I have seen this growth coming since the early Years and while it is a Sad Thing to watch disappear Its also Interesting to see what it’s transforming into.In some ways I hate it.But In others just to think 12 years ago it was almost a Non Factor.Now it is the Undisputed Heavy Weight of Music In New Orleans even Crushing Bourbon Street for Live Music.While the Locals are fleeing to St.Claude and the Bywater area for entertainment The Tourist Know about Frenchmen and are flocking In.In the Long run better Pay Has come for the Service Industry on Frenchmen and as a working Musician here “Money Talks and Bull $hit Walks”
This one was done in The3 Heat of August on Frenchmen Street.Meschiya was a Real Trooper agreeing to meet me at The Cafe Rose Nicaud.It is also one of my Favorite Interviews just before Mush Started getting Big.
