Return of Entertainment to the Sazerac Bar and Blue Room

After nearly 50 years, The Roosevelt New Orleans Hotel is again claiming its spot as a top music destination in the city and around the world.

On July 31, legendary clarinetist Pete Fountain will take the stage at The Roosevelt New Orleans Hotel's Blue Room, sharing the stage with fellow clarinetist Tim Laughlin. Together they will bring back the kind of star entertainment that once made the Blue Room one of America’s premier night clubs and supper clubs. The event will include a champagne reception and dinner starting at 7 p.m., with music to follow.

Once one of America's premier night clubs and supper clubs, The Blue Room will feature live music each Friday evening. The Roosevelt New Orleans Hotel will be opening its various attractions throughout the next month or so.

It was an exciting day at Teri Galleries when Jazz Legend Pete Fountain visited to give his 'signature of approval' to New Orleans' artist Matt Litchliter's original painting of the internationally famous clarinetist! A collection of jazz fans and fine art investors were on hand to witness Pete Fountain and Matt Litchliter's meeting and autograph session. Although the original of Pete Fountain has sold, a limited edition run of giclee's on canvas are available.

Teri Galleries is celebrating the 79th birthday of their long time friend, Pete Fountain. Pete has been a huge part of what makes New Orleans so unique and his music has touched so many throughout his long career. Celebrate with us by purchasing one of the pieces that Pete's music inspired.

The embellished giclee' "Pete Fountain" by Louisiana artist Matt Litchliter captures that indelible spirit that is Pete Fountain as he plays during Mardi Gras and the during the procession of the Half Fast Walking Club. The series of original paintings done by another Louisiana artist, Jim Tweedy, have also been inspired by Pete Fountain. These pieces, both original and giclee's, show Pete's love of life and music in these fun representations.

These pieces as well as Litchliter's piece have been co-signed by Pete Fountain. If interested in either piece please contact Teri Galleries at 504-887-8588,1-800-533-8374 or via email at
