Frenchman St Music - Cost/cover?

I was wondering what the cost is for Snug Harbor tickets? Does it vary by show/artist? Also, what are the cover charges like for some of the other music stops on Frenchman? Is there a time (early?) or specific day of the week when certain music spots DON'T charge a cover? As always, we're scoping out ways to maximize the budget while having as much fun as possible in the Big Easy! :) Thank you in advance, my favorite trip advisors!

The cover charge at Snug Harbor does vary a bit by act. We`ve paid $15 or so for Charmaine Neville and Ellis Marsalis who are both excellent. That`s probably the high end.

An excellent site for entertainment listings is Offbeat.com, They post schedules by date and club.

Frenchmen Street is a great area for music. Don`t miss it!

Thank you for your suggestion and info, Nawlins. I am familiar with Offbeat (have it bookmarked to check closer to our departure), but can't seem to track down cover charges/etc info. Hmm...

Apple Barrel bar has no cover, Music starts 4 or 5 pm on weekends, Spotted Cat no cover, music starts about the same time or earlier. DBA, Blue Nile, Masion usually no cover for early shows (6 to 7 pm) 5 dollar cover for late shows (10pm) 15 to 20 dollar cover for Snug Harbor shows at 8:00 and 10:00 pm. Of course this can change.

At least one drink per set and please tip the musicians...they play for tips!

By the way...it's FRENCHMEN Street...

Thank you, Innkeeper, that is IMMENSELY helpful! Also, sorry for the spelling error. We browsed FrenchmEn last summer but were too tired to really enjoy it; looking forward to spending much more time there our next visit. Thank you again for all of the great information!
