Named after the famous Milneburg Amusement Park on Lake Ponchartrain, the Milneburg Jazz Band plays music associated with New Orleans when Jazz was young, including that of Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Sidney Bechet, The Original Dixieland Jazz Band, and more.

We are ideal for Mardi Gras themed events, private
parties and BBQs, jazz societies, summer outdoor
events, birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, or any event that needs some toe-tapping energy and fun.

Our trio is highly portable and compact. We don’t need a piano, drums, or a big sound system, so we can set up in small spaces in restaurants, meeting rooms, private homes, or a deck or patio.

This group is expandable to a full 6-piece band for festivals and large events. Our Sextet has been well received at Jazz Society programs.

Because we have decades of professional music experience, you can be sure that you will get a professional performance.  We arrive early, look and sound good, and do everything possible to make your event a success.
