The recently proposed revisions to the New Orleans city’s noise ordinance have been causing quite a stir and with good reason.

New Orleans has got its plethora of history, its amazing food, and several other aspects that make this great city as special as it is. But probably the one thing that is the most near and dear to the hearts of residents and visitors alike is New Orleans' music.

The ordinance argues for lowering the levels of permissible sound in both residential and commercial areas including an eight-block stretch along Bourbon Street. Click here to read the proposed ordinance.

A meeting with the New Orleans Housing and Human Needs committee was initially planned for noon today in the City Council Chambers, however that has been cancelled and the noise ordinance temporarily withdrawn.

The rally planned to precede the meeting at 11 A.M. today however is still on.

Come out this morning to let the city know that you are against the proposed noise ordinance. Just like when there were plans to build a stretch of highway running through the French Quarter, the music culture in our city is just as precious and needs to be protected and preserved.

The rally will take place at Duncan Plaza across from City Hall - click here for more information. And if you're a musician be sure to bring your instrument!
