New Orleans Area Drummers


Senior Member
I will be in the Big Easy the third full week of January. I will have a car so I will be mobile.

I always like to check out drum shops and music stores in any city I visit, so I ask you:

What are some good drum shops/music stores to check out in the New Orleans area?

I definitely like the "Mom and Pop" places, and I am mostly interested in Used Gear, so that would include good pawn shops etc. that typically have a lot of drum gear

Also, any good live shows going on during that week (January 19th through 25th?) that might be under the radar (or over the radar)?

I welcome your suggestions and thanks!

P. S. If anybody suggests "Guitar Center" or "Sam Ash", they will be hit upside the head with a 2S marching drumstick (ha ha)!
