Everyone seems to want to be in this town, beginning with the American Indians (4000 years) to the gold miners to the jazz singers (Ray Charles included) to the rockers (Nirvanna, Soundgarden). Perfect place to make your mark.
There's nothing like meandering down Bourbon street with a frosty Hurricane in one hand, stopping here and there along the way. Drawn in by a blistering guitar riff here, a brilliant sax there. The musicianship was so staggeringly brilliant, I was blown away.
