I went during the week and brought my showmanship! I had a blast singing. The hostess was fun and kept the crowd entertained in between. 3/1 beers is not a bad way to fill up on liquid courage.

This place was really fun! The emcee was really good. He could get the place going and keep it going for hours. Great voice and dance moves. You can sing and dance on the stage with him or by yourself. Karaoke can be really entertaining...More

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
