New Orleans Gumbo image

New Orleans Swamp Donkeys Traditional Jazz Band, Jon Cleary and The Absolute Monster Gentlemen

A spicy mix of traditional and contemporary N’Orleans music featuring two of the city’s leading bands –  classic jazz, funk, and r’n’b remind us that this is the city where jazz was born, where funk was defined, and where Fats Domino, Little Richard and countless others sowed the seed of Southern rick n’roll. Young New Orleans musicians don’t recognise barriers, and this afternoon we’ll hear two of the greatest bands, including a taste of an after hours jam session – Crescent City Style.
