The New Orleans House of Blues, located at 225 Decatur Street, opened in 1994 and can easily entertain up to 1,000 guests. The first location of the popular live music concert hall and restaurant mashup was opened in Cambridge, Mass., by co-founders Isaac Tigrett and Dan Akroyd while Aerosmith, Paul Shaffer, River Phoenix, Jim Belushi, Harvard University and several others assisted in financing the chain. Every location includes quilted stage curtains that display original folk-art pieces that pay homage to the African slaves who followed the road to freedom through the Underground Railroad. Aykroyd and Belushi often christen the stage at the opening of a new House of Blues location by performing as The Blues Brothers.
