NOLA’s Mistress of Jazz

When we were checking out the music at the Spotted Cat on Frenchman on the edge of the French Quarter, we happened upon a very authentic 1930’s style jazz band. Meschiya Lake and the Little Big Horn Jazz Band grabbed me from the moment we walked in the door. I stood mesmerized, tapped my feet and transported myself back to the beginning of the last century in a community seeped in Voo Doo and Creole traditions. As you will witness in the video, the New Orleans people know how to dance and party. The band just doesn’t stop and plays from around 9 until 3 am. She isn’t kidding when she says, “We’ll be back for 3 more sets.” If the joint is hoppin’ the band ain’t stoppin’.


We brought you a little piece of Meschiya Lake and the Little Big Horn Jazz Band live from the Spotted Cat in New Orleans.
