The power of live music to make people happy is on full display at every single New Orleans night club. If listening to bands and vocalists show off their skills is how you like to spend an evening, you'll find that New Orleans does things right. Multiple options let you tap into the classic venues like Preservation Hall, or you can get a taste of the city's offerings by visiting places like One Eyed Jacks, which is known for its eclectic music offerings. While many venues on the local music scene are clustered in the French Quarter area, terrific places to hear live music can be found throughout New Orleans neighborhoods. Frenchmen Street in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans is a must see to catch street music and a diverse line up of clubs. On any night of the week, within a two-block stretch, you can second line down the street with a brass band, catch a reggae groove at Cafe Negril and swing dance at the Spotted Cat. Just across the street, get down with rootsy rock and brass (Anders Osborne, Treme Brass Band) at d.b.a. and at the corner, grunge out at Check Point Charlie's, a serious rock and roll dive where - BONUS you can also do your laundry.
