A community of local jazz-lovers has always been at the heart of Tipitina’s. Look out for The Neville Brothers and Trombone Shorty, local acts who are a staple at the venue. Tipitina’s opened in 1977, taking its name from a song by regular performer Professor Longhair. A radio station used to operate in a studio apartment above the club. They’d lower a mic through a hole in the floor and broadcast a live show. Now, Tipitina’s is giving back. The Tipitina Foundation was established to develop local talents and foster a new generation of music-lovers through their programs. They still keep the party going, too. Standing-room-only, they literally get everyone on their feet with their performers.
