THE ROOSEVELT NEW ORLEANS BOOKS FIRST MUSICAL ACT MARKING RETURN OF ENTERTAINMENT IN THE SAZERAC BAR, BLUE ROOM
NEW ORLEANS - June 23, 2009 - After nearly 50 years, The Roosevelt New Orleans Hotel is again claiming its spot as a top music destination in the city and around the world.
Starting in July, guests can enjoy the fresh and imaginative sounds of jazz clarinetist Tim Laughlin inside the legendary Sazerac Bar. Laughlin will bring a sound and style that is uniquely his own, contrasting the classic style with which he grew up with the contemporary influences of others. Performance dates are July 9-11, 16-18 and 23-25, with shows beginning at 8 p.m. nightly.
On July 31, legendary clarinetist Pete Fountain will take the stage at the Blue Room with Laughlin. Together they will bring back the kind of star entertainment that once made the Blue Room one of America's premier night clubs and supper clubs. The event will include a champagne reception and dinner starting at 7 p.m., with music to follow.
The grand hotel returns with 504 rooms, of which 135 are luxury suites; the legendary Blue Room; the Sazerac Bar and Restaurant, John Besh's Domenica Restaurant and Teddy's Cafe; state-of-the-art meeting and convention rooms; and a 12,000-square-foot, world-class Guerlain Spa and fitness center.
Other amenities designed to position The Roosevelt New Orleans as a destination favored by travelers include a comprehensive business center, private dining and suite butler service, an outdoor pool and courtyard, and a specialty gift shop.
