The Quarternote band is great and we went back 3 times while in town. Even took requests from the audience.

This was just an overall great place to chill, listen to some great music, and visit with other people on Bourbon Street.

Had a great time here. Really enjoyed the band. They took requests and it was impressive the range they knew. 4 of the 5 band members sang and they were all great.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

Over a few years, I've been to the Famous Door several times and it seems they have a different band each time. I hope they don't change to Country and Western music!!! Gotta love that good old Rock & Roll!
