Tipitina’s on Texas Street
It’s not a music store…

Tipitina’s on Texas is actually a branch of Tipitina’s Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support Louisiana’s music community. Originally, Tipitina’s began as a neighborhood juke joint in New Orleans in 1977 in order to provide Professor Longhair a place to perform in his later years. (Prof. Longhair wrote “Mardi Gras in New Orleans” which is the soundtrack to carnival every year.)

Over the years, Tipitina’s in New Orleans has grown from a small, neighborhood bar, into a 1,000-person capacity international music shrine. A few of the artists that have graced the stage are: Dr. John, The Neville Bros., The Meters, The Radiators and Better Than Ezra.
