Louisiana Music Factory Presents
The NOLADrinks Show’s “French Quarter Fest Series”

Join us for these special episodes of the show! Louisiana Music Factory presents The NOLADrinks Show’s French Quarter Festival Series!

This ongoing series brings local New Orleans and Southeast Louisiana musicians to talk music, drink, food, and culture. Every few weeks, we will pair up different artists to join the show. The interview sessions are taped at Louisiana Music Factory and the public is welcome to attend. Check our Facebook page to see the next time we will be there.

The idea of the series is to talk with our guests about their music as well as their connection to food, drink, and the broader culture of the region. The artists we chat with are all local and will appear at the 36th annual French Quarter Festival presented by Chevron from April 11-14, 2019. We will record these interviews, which will air on the show on future dates. Our guests also stick around for our podcast-only portion of the show – “Another Shot with NOLADrinks” – to talk further with us!

Stop by, check out the interviews, interact with the show and our guests, and browse the great selection of music and more at Louisiana Music Factory located on Frenchmen St. in the heart of New Orleans’ music district. And, be sure to watch for the broadcast and podcast!
