Yes, it has changed some. Still some good dixie bands, but a lot of
competition from clubs that feature Cajun music, zydeco, rock, and a lot of
unidentifiable sounds coming from every open door on Bourbon street, with
PAs all set at maximum decibels. Still some good music at Palm Court,
Fritzels, Turtle's on Decatur, Maison Bourbon, and Storyville. The
personnel varies from one night to the next, so you take your chances. Also
a good group at the Market cafe from 11:30 to 3:30 in the daytime most days.
It's not OKOM, but they are great players till the leader comes out and
sings all the the things the tourists want to hear.
