Jazz Fest Shows Announced! (Jan 31, 2019)

Very pleased to announce that we'll be back in New Orleans in May for our 13th consecutive Jazzfest shows, on the SECOND WEEKEND, as is the custom. This year we'll be back at the House of Blues on Decatur Street. Friday's show is the more civilised time (doors at 8pm), while Saturday will be the traditional crazy late-night affair at which we start playing around 1am (once everyone has made it through the doors) and play until the small hours. Feel free to come to both shows!
