About this project

Breezy's, uptown New Orleans' favorite pop-up DIY music venue, is getting a legit home, and we need a legit sound system to show for it. For the last two years, we've been relying on the generosity of our peers in the New Orleans music and art community to meet our sound needs. Now, with a real home and place of business, we need one final push to make our dreams a reality.
In exchange for your generosity, we are offering some pretty sweet deals. We plan on having quite the private soiree to show you our new place before we open to the public. Local artists and musicians are also lending their creativity
to make for some uniquely awesome rewards as well. Thank you very much for your support.


What is Breezy's?


Breezy's began as Do-It-Yourself (DIY) music venue and art space in a small house in the Freret neighborhood of New Orleans. The second you walked into Breezy's you simultaneously felt like you were at home and in another world. Local arts and goods covered nearly every square inch of the walls, floor, and ceiling. Local and touring bands that often played at venues 10 times as large would make appearances to do a show at the space. Most importantly, a sense of community and togetherness enveloped all who entered.

After leaving the Freret house, the spirit of Breezy's lived on at Breezy's Riverbend, an outdoor space that served as a temporary home for the expanding community. It did not take long, however, for us to find a legitimate commercial space along the booming Freret corridor, just blocks from where it all started.  We are currently doing the construction work on the new place by ourselves and sincerely appreciate any contributions to getting us a real sound system. Thanks for your time and support. See you at the new Breezy's!
