This building, on Frenchmen sat vacant for quite sometime, then opened as Ray’s Boom Boom Room, changed hands, and I got hired to make a new sign saying, Maison de la Musique. It changed hands again, (to more capable ones, in my opinion) and I repainted the sign to just Maison, back in 2009.
A Graphics Department was created, and They came up with a Logo, which I used to create the Main stage sign, and a smaller version with a trumpet instead of a trombone, for the Front stage.
These were done in time for the Baller’s Ball, who’s secret performer, with Mystikal, turned out to be Snoop Dogg.

In 2015 I redid the Street sign out of Spanish cedar, because the old sign needed work done every year. We lost the cool natural aging of it, but the new one will last a lot longer.
