New Orleans is famous for its cuisine, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The city is often referred to as the "most unique" in America.

The music of New Orleans assumes various styles of music which have often borrowed from earlier traditions.  New Orleans, Louisiana is especially known for its strong association with jazz music universally considered to be the birthplace of the genre. The earliest form was Dixieland, which has sometimes been called “traditional jazz” 'New Orleans', and 'New Orleans jazz'. However, the tradition of jazz in New Orleans has taken on various forms that have either branched out from original Dixieland or taken entirely different paths altogether. New Orleans has also been a prominent center of funk, home to some of the earliest funk bands such as The Meters.
The store is located about 15 minutes west of downtown New Orleans in Harahan LA, straight down Earhart hwy.  This location was originally a Musicians Friend store from 1995 until 1999 when it was purchased and converted into a Guitar Center.  We have been here servicing the large and diverse crowd of musicians in New Orleans for the last 14 years.  In 2013 the store went through a massive remodel during which we added the largest assortment of Band and Orchestral instruments in the city, Guitar Centers largest lessons and rehearsal facility, and a shiny new rentals department.  New Orleans now has a music store fit to service one of the greatest music communities in the world. 
Here at Guitar Center New Orleans we are focused on creating an incredible customer experience for everyone, and doing our best to foster and mentor the next generation of musicians in order to preserve the already rich history of music in New Orleans.  Please stop by and give us a chance to help you reach your musical dreams!!
