The Maple Leaf Bar in New Orleans, LA

8316 Oak Street New Orleans, LA 70118
The Maple Leaf Bar in is one of the longest-operating music clubs in the city that still offers live performances every night of the week.

Guests to the infamous bar can enjoy music from several genres including, blues, R&B, funk, rock, zydeco, jam-bands, jazz and any mix of the above categories.

Currently, "The Leaf" as it is often called, is where Grammy Lifetime Achievement winner George Porter Jr. and his trio call home every Monday night. The Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band is another long-time performer of The Maple Leaf Bar and graces the stage every Tuesday night to perform for locals and tourists alike. It's not unusual for The Leaf to see a few surprise guests every now and then, as Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen and other unannounced artists have shown up to have a jam-session with scheduled performers.

The Maple Leaf Bar opened for business on February 24, 1974, where Andrew Hall and his band would put on the first performance at the venue. Andrew and his group showed up to play every Saturday night at The Leaf for the next seven years. Another impressive figure to be involved with the bar is poet Everette Maddox who co-founded the longest-running poetry-reading series in the south in 1979.

Some of the frequent performers of The Maple Leaf Bar include James Booker, the Rebirth Brass Band, Papa Grows Funk, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, "Money Mike" Armstrong, The Radiators and Henry Butler. Whether you are lucky enough to live in the eccentric city of New Orleans, or you are merely stopping in for a visit, make sure to take the time to enjoy a live performance at The Maple Leaf Bar while you're in town.
