The evening we went for a dinner cruise on the historic Natchez paddle steamer.  I will have a daytime picture of it in the river in a later post on Algiers Point.  Here we are sliding away from the dock.

The Natchez is the last authentic steamboat on the Mississippi River.  It was built in 1975 but its steam engines and steering system come from the earlier steamboat Clairton, built in 1925.  It is the ninth steamboat called Natchez; the first one was built in 1823.

There were other vessels on the river at night; this one a tug.

After a buffet dinner, we managed to find a couple of seats quite close to the band, which had not yet stared to play.

The band is the Dukes of Dixieland, who play swinging, lively New Orleans Jazz.  This is their website and there are some music videos there as well.
