Violinist Goes Ham

Violinist Goes Ham

New Orleans-based violinist Dominique Hammons was playing at a wedding when he busted out into an epic and electric solo that got the whole crowd going. In case you’re unfamiliar with the tune, it’s the New Orleans Saints’ unofficial anthem Choppa Style. We love his cover of 2Pac’s California Love too.

Stay in the heart of the Big Easy’s Magazine Street district in this vintage apartment. It has tall ceilings, plenty of light, antique pine floors, exposed brickwork and beams, and a modern kitchen and baths. Behind its deceptively skinny front door, it has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, making it a great getaway for family or friends.
