A staple of New Orleans music and culture since 1977, Tipitina’s has long stood as a touchstone of the city’s vibrant, world-renowned music scene. The venue has played host to generations of NOLA musical royalty including Ivan Neville, Dr. John, Professor Longhair, Big Freedia, and Trombone Shorty.
When it faced imminent closure back in 2018 the space found new ownership in funk superstars Galactic, who have since taken the mantle as Tipitina’s “stewards”. In this episode of the Independent Venue Speak podcast, Tipitina’s General Manager Brian “Tank” Greenberg is joined by guest host, Galactic drummer, and Tipitina’s co-owner, Stanton Moore. Together the pair discuss the club’s legendary status in The Big Easy and the steps that Tipitina’s new owners are taking to keep its legacy alive.
