Merch Supports Tipitina's Foundation
History in the Music
Tipitina's began as a neighborhood juke joint, established in 1977, by a group of young music fans (The Fabulous Fo'teen) to provide a place for Professor Longhair to perform in his final years. The venue, named for one of Longhair's most enigmatic recordings "Tipitina," has survived in an ever-changing musical climate. In the past three decades, Tipitina's has grown from a small, neighborhood bar into an international music icon. The venue has expanded into a two-story music venue located at the famed corner of Napoleon and Tchoupitoulas.
All profits from the venue are donated to the Tipitina’s Foundation to support childhood music education, the professional development of adult musicians, and the increased profile and viability of Louisiana music as a cultural, educational, and economic resource.
