If you desire a true New Orleans sound for your party, this is the band to hire! They are the real deal. You can tell the band has been playing together for a long time, and they are a great musical team! They know all of the songs by heart, are well trained in various forms of New Orleans style music, and add great festiveness to events. I would highly recommend them for any party!
