“Great Blues Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in here while visiting Bourbon st. Great Blues band Willie was great! they reminded me of a classic blues band.
Fun atmosphere. If you like the blues you need to stop at the Funky Pirate. Oh yea and $2 shots while the band is on break.

“Glorious Blues you Must Experience on Bourbon Street!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Jazz and Brass Bands, Rock and Zydeco in every possible direction . . . For Blues the Funky Pirate is the go-to essential!

No matter if you prefer to elbow yourself a spot inside, wait for space between sets, or simply get a beer or horrendous cheap neon green drink at the street front service window, the music is Not To Be Missed! Wonderful talented musicians here nightly meant we stopped regularly and lingered - Highly recommend this for blues lovers!

“An Every Time Must Visit Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We always hit the Funky Pirate whenever we visit New Orleans. Mark and the Pentones are fantastic and a great band to while away the afternoon/early evening with. They never fail to put on a great show, and depending on how 'happy' Mark gets, will depend on how wild the guitar playing gets. The evenings make way to Big Al Carson who plays with a feeling that is what the New Orleans music scene is all about. Add to it a few Hand Grenades and you will weave your way home humming along to the music that stays with you.

“blues and more blues”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We dropped in early just after four on Friday and caught willie lockett and the all purpose blues band with billy gregory...they had a good mix of blues..roadhouse,muddy waters,and they take requests. It was our first time seeing them and have to do it again.
