Paul Sanchez is an extremely talented musician born and raised in New Orleans. We have the pleasure of hosting him here at The Maple Tree Inn.

Paul will be playing on our Veranda. Your ticket provides you with a reserved seat for this intimate show, however seating location is first come, first served. We advise that if you have a larger group to come a little earlier to try and make sure you all sit together. If not, in the tradition of The Maple Tree Inn, we will make sure you make some new friends.

In his own words, Paul Sanchez is "New Orleans born, New Orleans bred, and when I die, I'll be New Orleans dead."

Sanchez is known as a founding member of the rock band Cowboy Mouth, with whom he has 11 albums;
For his role in the HBO series TREME where he played himself;
and as the creative force behind the musical NINE LIVES, a musical adaptation of the New York Times best-selling novel by Dan Baum.

Like many New Orleanians, Paul was tremendously impacted by Hurricane Katrina. "I lost my home, my possessions, community and, eventually, my job after the flood. I was changed, I'm changed as a person and it couldn't help but change my music", confesses Sanchez, who like many struggled to find a new identity after Hurricane Katrina.
After much soul-searching, he left Cowboy MouthNovember 2006.
Paul lived on island of Amber-Gris Kaye in Belize for a few months before returning to New Orleans to begin again.

Life Is A Ride, his 15th solo release, is a return to the rock songs Paul played in his 14 years with Cowboy Mouth.
"Life Is a Ride rocks with joyits the best straight-out rock record Sanchez has cut in years"
John Swenson, Offbeat Magazine
