No city has influenced American popular music to the extent that New Orleans has. In this program, Patrick and his trio explore the music of the Crescent City and the impact it had on all popular music that followed. 

This program is especially great around Mardi Gras, featuring jazz, blues, gospel, zydeco, and more. Beads will be thrown!

In addition to the live music, this show features:

  • Analysis of musical concepts

  • Historical facts and anecdotes

  • Audience participation 

  • Powerpoint visual aids


Volunteers even get to sit in with the trio, no musical experience required! This show is a crowd pleaser, no matter the crowd!
