Billie Holiday

Signed Photo

Quite possibly the most beloved jazz vocalist of all time, Billie Holiday rewrote the book for female vocalists during her short and tragic life. Gorgeous and soulful songs like “God Bless the Child” and “Trav’lin Light” are great examples of Billie’s unique style, but 1939’s “Strange Fruit” – with its haunting lyric and melancholy delivery – might be her finest work. Billie signed this promo shot “To Ray Baby – Stay #1

Bob Dylan


This Hohner Special 20 harmonica and holder were used on stage by Bob Dylan. Dylan’s use of the neck-mounted harmonica spawned an entire generation of imitators.

Britney Spears


In the fickle world of pop music, Kentwood, Louisiana’s own Britney Spears has maintained relevance – both musically and culturally – for over a decade. Britney is one of the top-selling female artists in history and her first four albums all debuted at number one. It’s no accident that her note-perfect blend of bubblegum pop and dance grooves dominated the early 21st century airwaves. She wore this outfit on tour in 1999 as her journey to superstardom was just beginning.

Elvis Presley


This Electro-Voice RE-16 microphone was used by Elvis Presley in the early ‘70s. It’s got the King’s name inscribed on its body and was given by Elvis to his longtime friend Charlie Hodge.

Little Richard


Of all the early rock ‘n’ roll pioneers, no one personifies the true spirit of the art form more than Little Richard. With hits like “Good Golly Miss Molly”, “Long Tall Sally”, “Tutti Frutti” and “Keep A-Knockin’”, Richard defined the reckless, incendiary style that makes rock ‘n’ roll so great. Little Richard wore this completely over-the-top outfit on stage in 1970. The brown stains on the lapels are from pancake makeup dripping off his sweat-soaked face.

Louis Armstrong

Silver Trumpet

No place on Earth has a musical legacy as rich and influential as the Crescent City; and Louis Armstrong – his style, his charm and his unprecedented virtuosity – is the cornerstone of that legacy. This trumpet was Louis’s personal instrument. In Satchmo’s hands, this sacred object gained an almost magical power to make art, bring joy and spread the gospel of American music. The postcard on display is a great example of the self-deprecating sense of humor Louis had. He sent it to a friend named “Jonesy”.

Rockin Dopsie

Acadian Squeezbox

The undisputed master of the button accordion, Rockin’ Dopsie was New Orleans’ leading exponent of Creole culture and the Zydeco tradition for nearly 50 years. This Acadian squeezebox was his personal instrument.

Stevie Ray Vaughn

Fringe Jacket

The late, great force of nature known as Stevie Ray Vaughan wore this fringed jacket on stage in the ‘80s. Stevie’s guitar virtuosity was unparalleled and he was a key part of the blues resurgence of the 1980s.

The Doors

Handwritten Lyrics

This is a set of handwritten lyrics to the traditional blues classic “Crawling King Snake” – which the Doors recorded for their final album, L.A. Woman, in 1971. Though there were recorded versions as early as the 1920s, the Doors probably became aware of the song through John Lee Hooker’s 1949 recording. These lyrics are in Jim Morrison’s hand.
