I was in New Orleans recently and was surprised that I wasn't hounded by Trumpet players in every corner following me and playing "When the (Dollars and) Cents come
marching in" like in this comic. >>120307074
I came to this thread to say that. That's all.
Sure, I was passing a bunch of amateur jazz players, guitar stringers, and singers in the French Quarter but I never heard that song amongst them. It was kind of disappointing. And yeah, they were even playing in the quiet zone by the church.
Sadly, I couldn't stomach even a quarter of the stuff Homer Simpson did, though I did got to two of these restaurants.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLFpTLEnrqU
Also, the WWII museum and the sculpture gardens were surprisingly good.
