Street Sounds of N’awlins

One of my favorite parts of New Orleans was the bands performing on the street. We ran into a couple of them several times in different parts of the French Quarter.

This band is named “Yes Ma’am”. 5-0 was enforcing them to move from the street. I love how they just kept on playing.
