The Royal Roses
Oct 16 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

The Royal Roses grew out of the rich resurgence that traditional jazz is seeing in New Orleans amongst the younger generation of musicians today. Saxophonist/vocalist Aurora Nealand has been playing in various groups in New Orleans since 2005, and the Royal Roses, founded in 2010, is her first venture as a bandleader. The Royal Roses draw their repertoire heavily from Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhart and traditional jazz of New Orleans. Comprised of some of the finest young players on the New Orleans music scene today, the Royal Roses are seeking to breath new energy, arrangements and compositions into this genre of music while exploring and learning from its rich history and tradition. They‘ve performed in New Orleans at the French Quarter Festival, Satchmo Festival and Preservation Hall, as well as in NYC at Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival. Their first album “A Tribute to Sydney Bechet: Live at Preservation Hall” was released in 2011 to national acclaim. Current members are: David Boswell (trumpet), Matt Bell (vocals/guitar), Bill Machow (piano), Josh Gouzy (bass), Nathan Lambertson (bass) and Paul Thibodeaux (drums).

The New Orleans Jazz Vipers
Oct 18 @ 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

In 2009, the original New Orleans Jazz Vipers morphed into two new bands, Joe Braun’s The New Orleans Jazz Vipers and the New Orleans Cottonmouth Kings featuring six former Jazz Vipers. You can hear both bands playing regularly on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans, and both have released new CDs available at their websites.

The original New Orleans Jazz Vipers were a popular and active band in New Orleans for many years, pioneers of the Frenchmen Street scene, with a twice-weekly residency at the Spotted Cat 2003 to 2009. Noteable festival appearances included the Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, Lincoln Center Midsummer Night Swing and the Monterey Jazz Festival (in September 2005). Part of the unique sound of the Jazz Vipers came from the fact that they rarely used any amplification. The sound of the band was at the same time retro, full of energy and unpretentious, with both up-tempo dance numbers and well-chosen ballads; it has been aptly described as neo-trad-jazz. The band received many awards in Louisiana including the Gambit’s “Big Easy” award in 2005 for “Best Traditional Jazz Band,” and Offbeat Magazine’s “Best of the Beat” award in 2004 for “Best Traditional Jazz Album” (for the album “Live on Frenchmen Street”). In 2001 and 2003 they won the “Best of the Beat” award for “Best Emerging Traditional Jazz Band.”

The Good For Nothin’ Band
Oct 19 @ 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM

The Good For Nothin’ Band is to the New Orleans music scene what Al Capone was to the Chicago Mafia, ” The Enforcer of Wow “ the hot bang club, original, defying cultures, tastes, genres, and decor, sacrilege in all its perfection, a feast for the soul of wayfaring pilgrims searching for the Un-Holy Grail of seedy salvation. This pack of rouge delinquents will decapitate your senses with songs and music crafted from utter mayhem and sheer debauchery. The lucky pilgrim who ventures into the room with these deplorable angels with leave molecularly scathed, never to be integrated into normalcy again, forever changed to roam the earth in the fog of delightful Whiggery. When in Nola, seek out these degenerate scallawags and drink in the groove shadows of this notorious city of wonder as they bombard you with their infamous musical tales of the city of dreams. The Good For Nothin Band , coming to your local sleaze palace and insane asylum.

His mission is to move the sound to its logical next step while delighting audiences throughout the city with his sprightly, effervescent clarinet performances.
