The son of late Afrobeat pioneer and political activist Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti heads up his legendary father's band with a familiar passion for social justice and even more familiar knack for dance, made his own and modernized for a new generation. Seun began performing on stage and leading Egypt 80 at age 14, opening for his father and forging the groundwork for a brilliant performance career. Longtime followers of Egypt 80 will recognize Seun's call-and-response vocals, irresistibly funky rhythm section, and massive horn choir, and the 29-year old singer also bears the hallmarks of hip-hop influences from his heroes Chuck D and Dr. Dre. Though not dancing at an Egypt 80 show is as impossible as maintaining proper fork etiquette in a pie-eating contest, the protest band's biting vocals keep brains socially aware even as booties lose themselves in movement. Michaelangelo Matos of Billboard wrote that the band's latest album, From Africa with Fury: Rise, is “at once supple and intricate––the weave of percussion and guitar...is articulated more clearly than even on his father's prime records.”

House of Blues New Orleans

At home in the French Quarter, the House of Blues New Orleans keeps its heritage ever near with a metal box of mud from the Mississippi Delta hidden beneath its stage. Around this, more than 290 pieces of folk art—one of the largest collections in the country—decorate the walls. Also bringing its Southern charm and homestyle feel are hardwood floors, no fewer than three bars, and two levels for concert viewing.
