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.

Pete Fountain, Jazz Clarinetist, was born on July 3, 1930 in New Orleans. He has entertained us for decades and we all wish him the best.
We wish Pete a happy 79th birthday, and may he continue to "toot" and make music for many more years.

Pete Fountain Artwork
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.
