We're bringing the same caliber of amazing shows you've come to expect from the Backbeat Foundation to a new venue-- the 12 Bar. The 12 Bar is a locally owned and operated venue establishing itself as a prime live music destination in NOLA by regularly featuring live acts, rooted heavily in Brass, Blues, Jazz R&B and Funk. 12 Bar is conveniently located in the heart of the CBD, just a stone's throw from the French Quarter. Thanks to Harrah's Casino, there's even a Christmas light lit path leading up to the 12 Bar's front entrance on Fulton Street!More information at www.backbeatfoundation.org.
