Rock N Bowl is one of the most original music venues in the world. It’s an old bowling alley that owner John Blanchard added at one end a stage and dance floor for live music. Every night local New Orleans bands play everything from Zydeco to swing to funk. I used to go frequently when I lived there, but had to visit one more time this trip. Check out this movie of Big Sam’s Funky Nation. The sound was too loud for the camera and distorted. You can only imagine from the video alone what energy was happening on the dance floor.
