Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience
Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience inhabits the look, sound, and spirit of the biggest rock band of the ’70s, mesmerizing fans with the accuracy of its portrayal. Formed in 1995 to replenish the nation’s dwindling classic-rock reservoirs, the four permanent members of Zoso live in their heroes’ skins, nailing every note, nuance, and occasional charley horse. The live act draws from dozens of hits to recreate a quintessential ’70s experience, earning the band critical acclaim, a dedicated following, and approving gusts of hair-ruffling wind blown by John Bonham’s ghost.

Bustout Burlesque evokes the heyday of Bourbon Street nightclubs for adults-only audiences in an authentic 1950s spectacle of showgirls, jazz, comedy, and hot-under-the-collar choreography. Voted one of the top 10 burlesque shows in the world by the Travel Channel’s panel of howling cartoon wolves, Bustout Burlesque’s professional cast of glamorous goddesses strips and teases in elegant routines that make ears steam and bow ties spin.
December 15 marks 2011 “Queen of Burlesque” Ginger Valentine’s debut as the latest incarnation of Evangeline the Oyster Girl––a legendary character of Southern folklore who rises from her giant shell to tempt the bayou. In a role passed down and sanctioned by the original Evangeline, Kitty Wells, Ginger extracts beads of sweat from foreheads in an act steeped in tradition and steered by her sensuous maneuvers and come-hither glances.
The traditional New Orleans swing of the Bustout Burlesque jazz band soundtracks the ruffling of feathers with disrobing trombones and panting cornets, as pupils dilate to a retro display of the wholesome and risqué. With bewitching sirens, cathouse lighting, seductive songbirds, and a comic emcee, Bustout Burlesque entices all genders and generations with charm, elegance, and sauciness.
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.
