Says New Orleans musician Todd Souvignier, "I'm writing you today to let you know that Tipitina's Music Storage & Rehearsal is now open for business at 700 Texas Street, above the Music Office Co-Op. It's a 26-space facility, all newly renovated, and our first band tenants are already moving in.

At the risk of stating the obvious, there's been a desperate need for sanctioned music rehearsal space in the Shreveport/Bossier area. We've had so many phone calls from people telling the same story: "Tried to rehearse at a mini-storage facility, but they kicked us out. Tried rehearsing in Mom's garage during the day, but the cops kept coming." We've wanted to bridge that gap for a long time, so we're very excited about finally opening the doors."

Interested parties should contact:
