Hi everyone,
I'll be travelling and spending a day in New Orleans, I know they have a history of being Busker friendly, is that still the case?

When I was in New Orleans about a year ago there were lots of Buskers out around the Cathedral square. Over the course of 3 days I saw a wonderful Cyr Wheel Acrobat, a juggler / rolla bolla act, and at least 6 different magicians. Almost all of the magicians were doing a variation of the same thing and it looked like several of them were working together and trading out certain spots.

There is also a jazz band that performs and hangs out regularly by the cathedral. And a large acrobat group that does huge circle type shows on the sidewalk across the street from the cathedral square, near Café du Monde. (I'm surprised the acrobats have not been shut down as they do block the entire sidewalk for the performance pretty much.

I should note that I was there in an off season and all of these buskers were out.

I could never busk New Orleans, I barely manage the pizza place on Thayer Street!

Ed, I reckon you'd probably do much better in New Orleans than you think. Thayer St. is probably much harder to realistic work and learn.

I visited New Orleans two weeks ago and caught an amazing lineup of performers! Many greats performed one after another. My highlight was when Gazzo appeared after I thought I saw it all. Fun Day!

If you caught Gazzo there, that would have been a treat. His cups and balls is awesome. I took his Master Class in cups and balls years ago, and loved doing it.

Lot of fun entertainers on Jackson Square. Jugglers, unicycle rider, acrobats, and magicians. Bone readers and fortune tellers.... Painters, all kinds of acts

Fun to watch. More fun, good foot traffic after a Saints football game ends, setting up a pitch, drawing a crowd and performing.
