About Us

Welcome to the official online store of New Orleans' most famous music night club, the internationally renowned Tipitina's. Opened in 1977 to showcase the talents of Professor Longhair (aka Fess), Tipitina's classic banana logo has become a favorite symbol of live music lovers everywhere.

Some say that Tipitina's is filled with magic.  Others say that it's just plain haunted by the spirit of Fess, who inspires the musicians to perform with an energy and excitement that will always keep the tradition of great music alive.  Whatever you choose to believe, after experiencing a night at Tip's, you become part of the legacy and magic of New Orleans tradition.  Tip's is located in the historic Uptown neighborhood under the live oaks at the famed intersection of Napoleon Ave & Tchoupitoulas St.

Founded in 2003, Tipitina's Foundation is a federally recognized 501(c)3 charitable organization whose mission is to support Louisiana and New Orleans' irreplaceable music community and to preserve the state's unique musical cultures.  Net proceeds from the sale of Tipitina's merchandise, along with a portion of the proceeds from Tipitina's music venue, are donated to 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.  Learn more about Tipitina's Foundation's programming by visiting www.tipitinasfoundation.org.
