From the inside out, the Howling Wolf Music Club was crafted to be legendary. Renowned muralist Michalopoulos painted a colorful tribute to New Orleans Jazz on the Howlin’ Wolf’s long outer wall, and it is what greets you before you are ushered inside. The bar was carved from the wood of mobster Al Capone’s hotel, The Lexington. Its black theater curtains were saved from The Orpheum Theater, and even it’s name was taken from Jazz legend Chester Bennett. The acts keep up to par with previous performances by a wide spectrum of acts, from Harry Connick Jr. to The Foo Fighters. They work closely with The Rebirth Brass Band, percussionist Mike Dillon, and Hot 8 Brass Band—to name just a few—to bring Jazz ever-forward.
