Abadie or Aberdeen brothers‘ Cabaret:
At Marais and Bienville Streets.
Joe “King” Oliver played here with the quartet of Richard M. Jones.
In Jazzmen, this cabaret was mentioned as Aberdeen brothers‘.
It was here that Joe Oliver decided to prove his merits. Joe instructed his pianist one day to sound the chord of B-flat. He began playing while marching across the cabaret floor and went out into the street. He directed his trumpet towards Pete Lala’s house where Freddie Keppard played with the Olympia Band and after that in the direction of the place Emmanuel Perez was playing. The people came out the gambling houses, brothels and honky tonks and followed Joe re-entered the Aberdeen cabaret. After that they spoke deferentially of Joe as „King“.
