New Year’s Eve Kicks Off Regular Musical Line-up in Newly Reopened Carousel Bar and Lounge
Tuesday through Saturday night entertainment starts January 2012 at Hotel Monteleone
New Orleans, LA – With the New Year comes a brand new line-up of fresh musical entertainment in the famous, newly reopened Carousel Bar and Lounge in the Hotel Monteleone. The nightly entertainment kicks off on New Year’s Eve at 9 p.m. with Luther Kent, a New Orleans jazz favorite, and includes well-known artists and newcomers on the scene every Tuesday through Saturday night in January and beyond.
All the musical entertainment is free and open to the public. The 2012 line-up features a rotation of well-known New Orleans artists, Hotel favorites and special guests including Robin Barnes & Band, the Luther Kent Quartet, Lena Prima & Band, Eudora Evans & Band and the George French Jazz Quartet. Of special note, it honors the Hotel’s past as Lena Prima’s father, Louis Prima, played regularly at the Hotel back in the mid-1960s.
The Carousel Bar’s new lounge area reopened on December 30 after undergoing a renovation, which included adding expansive windows along Royal Street, enhanced décor and a secondary stationery bar. The current furnishings in the bar and lounge are temporary and will be replaced with new furniture to complete the renovation.
“Because the Carousel Bar is such an iconic part of the Hotel Monteleone, we were very careful during the renovation process to enrich without detracting from the atmosphere that patrons love,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing for the Hotel Monteleone. “In addition to physical enhancements, we also focused on the Carousel Bar’s musical entertainment by welcoming industry veteran Marie Long to our team.”
Recently appointed director of entertainment for the Hotel Monteleone, Marie Long will be in charge of booking regular entertainment for the famous Carousel Bar and Lounge. With more than 36 years of experience in the music industry, Long has worked with national and local talents, including The DUKES of Dixieland, Chicago, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and Tony Bennett, among others. Before forming Extravaganzas, Inc., her own music production company in 1992, Long worked with Pete Fountain Productions and Ray Bloch Productions.
“I’m ecstatic to be working with the Hotel to introduce a variety of entertainment into the newly renovated Carousel Lounge,” said Long. “We are featuring classic jazz artists and legendary R&B singers to brand new on-the-scene talent. We plan on celebrating music legends and creating new ones right here on the corner of Royal and Iberville Streets in the Carousel Bar and Lounge.”

I am a teen wondering if it is legal especially in Louisiana to have a sports agent in high school. Now im thinking about becoming one me being my first client and i would govern high school students to get to college. Just to explain a little better instead of a sports agent trying to get you into the pros Im going to be a sports agent that gets you into college and that’s it. I need to know is that legal.
Anyone can have an agent, it’s only illegal when they get money from agents and they don’t report it as income. It would also make you ineligble for college.

Good Morning NOLA! It is another beautiful spring like day. Hight today just nosing over the seventy degree mark with plenty of sun on this hump day. What a great week we have had so far and there is more to come. It looks like our overnight lows will stay in the fifties with sunny days in the seventies for the next several days. You won’t need the jacket today. I am mentally going through my closet and trying to think of what I can wear that will be right for this warm day but not too spring like. After all it is still February. No rain in the forecast until mid week next week and then it is just a few showers. Saturday starts the first parrade for the 2011 Mardi Gras season. What great weather to get things kicked off. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and the rest of your week is just as great. I know I will be soaking up this sunshine. See you in NOLA!
