Jazz Fest Anchored Down for Weekend 2

Juliana Goode - Monday, May 02, 2016

While the first weekend was nothing but sunshine, it was a long, wet close to the 2016 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Nonetheless, the festival managed to stay afloat to the very end. With just a brief halt in Sunday’s early line up, the show finished strong with acts like Neil Young and Trombone Shorty closing out the fest this year. Read

It's Officially Festival Season

Juliana Goode - Wednesday, April 13, 2016

French Quarter Fest wrapped up this past Sunday after an exciting weekend full of music, food and good spirits. We may be back to our everyday lives, but don’t get too comfortable. Festival season is just beginning here in New Orleans. New Orleans Live kept up with every note at FQF this year, which featured over 1,700 musicians spread amongst 23 stages throughout the quarter. Filling the streets of Canal to Esplanade, the music could be heard from across the river. Surely, this celebration alone would be enough festing for one city, but not NOLA. There’s about 100 more festivals lined up throughout the area. Read

What is a Second Line?

Cristian Colbert - Wednesday, June 10, 2015
When I first moved to New Orleans I was introduced to a friend of a co-worker who is a film producer. He asked me one day if I wanted to audition for a promotional campaign about New Orleans’ cultural heritage. I thought well sure, that sounds like fun! Then he asked me if I knew what a second line was. Not wanting to sound like a newbie I responded yes, of course. The audition would involve me participating in a second line without actually knowing the organizers. This happened years before smart phones, so googling it on my way home was not an option. Clearly I had my work cut out for me before I could show my face at this audition. So later that night I finally swallowed my pride and asked another friend who I was pretty sure wouldn’t make fun of my ignorance. Read

Where All The Cool Kids Go To Play

Cristian Colbert - Saturday, June 06, 2015
“Bye, Felicia”. As I contemplated how much trouble I would be in from Child Protective Services if I pushed my 13-acting-like-she-is-going-on-27-year-old niece down the stairs after she “bye Felicia-ed” me, I started wondering if I was now totally out of touch. After all, I have to consult Urban Dictionary at least twice a week since I live with a slew of Adolfs (aka teenagers) or I would have no idea if they are insulting me or not. (They are). That train of thought then led me to worry, “What if I’m not cool enough to work on New Orleans Live ?!” Now this is a devastating thought. After all, in the 90’s, Louisiana Jukebox was the epitome of cool. And since I was a producer on the show, ipso facto/quid pro quo/In nomine Patris/insert more Latin here, I was cool! However, fast-forward 19 years from when it first began and there is the slight possibility (slight!) that I might not be quite as hip as I was back then.  Read

2 Ways To Never Go Hungry in New Orleans

- Wednesday, June 03, 2015
(Andiamo) Caponata | by TheHungryDudes I'm like you. When I first got word I was heading to New Orleans, all I could think about was the food that was going to help me stay fat. Not fit but fat. I like to keep a few extra-pounds on me in case of another economic crisis, nahmean?  Once you step foot in Nawlinz you'll be overwhelmed by your options for world-class dining.  But I have good news.  Instead of zig-zagging and zipping all over town, you can attend one of New Orleans' many Summer food festivals where all your options are located in ONE place.  That's what I'm talking about!  Read

Do you know what it means, to miss New Orleans...?

Cristian Colbert - Tuesday, June 02, 2015

I do. As a former resident of the Crescent City I miss the sights, sounds, and smell of crawfish boiling. Honestly, if I smell it I have to stop and get some. The last place I lived before I moved away was on Common Street in the Central Business District. I could literally walk across Canal Street to the French Quarter and was then on Bourbon Street. For those who may not know, that corner of Bourbon and Canal often has a brass band playing. The music would echo off the buildings and I could hear it in my apartment. Crowds of tourists and locals gather on that corner any given day of the week to dance and clap along to that hypnotic beat. Read

Louisiana Jukebox to New Orleans Live; a musical evolution

Cristian Colbert - Tuesday, June 02, 2015

It’s been a long time since our last show on Louisiana JukeBox and no matter where I go I find people that were fans, that love New Orleans music and really miss the show. I speak quite often with locals who want to walk down memory lane and reminisce about the glory days of New Orleans music television. Many of the artists that were on the show at the time (when there was no social media) have shared the video clips with their fans around the world. You can find our work on JukeBox all over the internet, on YouTube as well as on many band and fan sites. In 2015, the demand for good video content is stronger than ever and the channels to get it to the music fans are infinite so naturally the timing couldn’t be better for New Orleans Live Read
