If you are into the electronic funk scene, you know a bit about Russ Liquid. They bring some jazzy elements (just look at that press photo!), to their music, fusing together funk, jazz and electronic beats into tracks that can be a bit more uptempo and then others that are smoother and mellow. They have strong ties to GRiZ and the All Good Records crew, which has strong roots in Colorado, but they rep the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans, hard as natives of the city. We asked them to give us five of their favorite venues in the city that you may not find in a guide book. They also shared five of their seminal New Orleans jazz records.  

The trio have a new EP coming out on November 3rd titled World Gone Crazy via GRiZ's All Good Records. Before diving into the list below, make sure you check out their new single.

Tipitnas: Tips is a one of a kind venue that has seen some of the most incredible moments in music history. Late night Jazz Fest shows like the annual Dumpstaphunk 2nd Sunday show are legendary.

​Tipitina's - New Orleans

Maple Leaf Bar - The Leaf is a small but super vibey spot on Oak St. It's where you go to see all of the New Orleans funk and R&B legends in a more intimate setting.

Blue Nile - Great spot to see music on Frenchman St. There's usually a small cover, but they pay the bands better which means...better bands.

Spotted Cat - My favorite Jazz spot on Frenchman St. Super casual and laid back and the baddest young, up and coming jazz musicians are there a lot.

The Joy Theatre - The best sounding of the bigger rooms in New Orleans. The other theaters might be more beautiful, but I go see music for the sound so I appreciate the way the Joy sounds.
