New Orleans Jazz Tour with Live Music and a Beer
Connie_R, Nov 2021 Verified
This tour is truly a remarkable experience! Harris Parson was our guide through an extraordinary cultural history of New Orleans jazz. Harris, a native of New Orleans and musician is able to answer any questions about New Orleans jazz whether you are like my husband and me with very limited knowledge or a jazz/music aficionado. The music we experienced of Marla Dixon and the Shotgun Jazz Band was fabulous. You will evolve with this experience and want more! In fact, Harris followed up by sending me the information I requested so I can continue my jazz journey. As Harris told us, “Remember we only meet you once and then you are part of our family”. You will feel like this. Don’t miss this experience-we highly recommend this tour with Harris!

You will gain an appreciation for Jazz from its early roots, through its development, rejection and eventual acceptance. Learn how it was named. Harris, our guide, is a wealth of information and conducts a well-paced tour ending up at a Jazz bar where we had great seats to listen to one of the leading local jazz groups. We stayed after the tour to listen to the second set while we ate some barfood and drinks.

Great time during our tour and learning the history behind New Orleans. We had an amazing time which led us to Frenchmen Street and couldn't get enough of it. Our tour guy was very knowledgeable and such a pleasure. We traveled in May 2021 and we couldn't ask for better weather. We did end up going back to Frenchmen Street after our tour as well.

Harris did a great job of explaining to history of jazz and two stops at local jazz spots — Favela Chic and Maison! After he gave us recommendations on other jazz clubs to check out & restaurants! Highly recommended!!

The tour was very informative. Our tour guide Harris Parson who is also a drummer took us on a historical trail in jazz. Love it! Thank you.

Harris was so full of information! We learned so much about the culture of New Orleans and the history of jazz! One note however. Cool New Orleans needs to emphasize this as a walking tour. A family joined us with two elderly grandparents. One was in a wheelchair and the other walked with difficulty with a cane. They took turns in the wheelchair. Harris was so accommodating to them but the situation definitely hampered the experience for the rest of us.

Fabulous tour. Harris really knew his Jazz and New Orleans history. We meet the owner of Tennessee Williams home and have us a tour of the inside patio/garden area. Harris made sure we were able to watch a Jazz band play.

Our guide, Harris Parsons, was the best. He found us an awesome place to listen to jazz on Frenchman Street after a very fun and informative tour. Even followed up the next day with information we asked for.
