Taxi availability during Mardi Gras

New Orleans - boards.cruisecritic.com
We will be in New Orleans from Sunday evening Feb 26 until Feb 28 10 PM arriving on the Celebrity Equinox. We are trying to find a guide for a tour during the day on Feb 27 and then plan on getting grandstand seats for the evening parades. There are 4 of us all in our late 60's and early 70's so walking long distances is a challenge so my lead question deals how available will taxis be around the dock area and how willing will they be to do short trips to either the Garden district or the outskirts of French Quarter where the live music clubs are? I have been to New Orleans multiple times but never during Mardi Gras. I was there on St Patrick's day so I have one limited experience with carnival parades in New Orleans and enjoyed the experience. But I understand the crowds there are not as big as the ones during Mardi Gras. Another question is can anyone recommend a good live jazz club close to the port?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me for this trip. My wife and the other couple we are going to be with are depending on me to come up with things to do that are safe and doable for us.
