A native of New Orleans, Tim Laughlin fell in love with the sound of the clarinet before he ever held one after hearing a childhood friend and he began playing it when he was nine years old. Influenced by the swing jazz styling of Pete Fountain, Tim Laughlin spent several years with the Dukes of Dixieland and led recording sessions for Good Time Jazz and Jazzology. In 2009, Laughlin along with his good friend Pete Fountain opened the legendary Blue Room at the newly renovated Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans, quickly selling out both nights. These days, one can catch Tim performing at some of his favorite clubs in New Orleans like The Palm Court, Richard Fiske’s Martini Bar, Snug Harbor and The Steamboat Natchez.
