Comments from previous clients

"Thank you again for an evening of music certainly of a caliber with an evening spent with Clark Terry about 15 years ago, and with Dizzy Gillespie about 20 years ago, when we lived in NYC." J.P. 


"It was so fun to see you guys perform again - always such great energy, big smiles and infectious music!" S.B.


"Thank you for making my 50th birthday complete with your beautiful Jazz. It was a real treat to have you all travel to Baton Rouge for me – I was flattered. Hope to see you all perform again real soon. Once again, I am grateful!" L.D.


"We've had the pleasure of hiring Leroy for a number of parties -- weddings, birthdays and business conferences -- and each time his performance has been one of the highlights of our guests' New Orleans' experience! Not only is his playing simply breathtaking, his choice of music is impeccable and his stage presence is warm and inviting. Our guests have always felt like they were getting a real tutorial on the history of music in New Orleans from one of the true legends in New Orleans jazz. Can't recommend Leroy highly enough -- and I can't imagine a better choice for a private party." P.F.


Thank you for everything!!!!!!!!!!!!! You were the talk of the funeral. I really appreciate all that you and the musicians did to give my grandfather a great send off." S.T.

About us

Spirit Of New Orleans Productions is a management and booking agency that currently represents the Leroy Jones Quintet, Spirit Of New Orleans, New Orleans Helsinki Connection, and the Original Hurricane Brass Band.

Other services offered include Graphic Design, Art Direction, Musical Arrangements and Musical Production.

Spirit Of New Orleans Productions is located in the heart of it all - Tremé, New Orleans, Louisiana. Spice up your event or festival with authentic New Orleans Jazz.


Spirit Of New Orleans Productions is musician owned and operated. This means we have an insight and decades of experience of performing for different crowds at different venues with different types of ensembles. We will be able to recommend the perfect group for your event depending on number of guests, location and duration and types of music requested. And if we for some reason are unable to fulfill the client's need, we will gladly refer you to some of our many music connections.

We specialize in New Orleans Jazz, with ensemble sizes ranging from trios to full size brass bands (10 musicians). All our music is predominantly acoustic but can of course be amplified if required. If amplification is needed, we have reliable contacts that can supply you with the right type of amplification system and operator.

We pride ourselves on not only delivering first class music but also being easily reachable by email/text messages/phone and being 100% dependable and reliable. Once you contract us to play for your event, you and/or your event planner will have one less thing to worry about.

You should also keep in mind that often you get what you pay for. Our bands' fees are probably a bit higher than quotes that you may get from other groups. But surely you did not choose the caterer, location, wedding gown or beverages solely based on their price. Investing in high-quality music for your event will be a decision you won't regret, and years later, the band will surely be one of the things You and Your guests will remember best.

All our bands consist of some of New Orleans' best and most renowned traditional jazz musicians who make their sole living playing music and therefore need to be compensated according to their talent, experience and commitment. Also, you have to keep in mind that the performance fee includes all costs, administrative fees and taxes.

"Project Rising Sun’s fundraiser was a huge success thanks to the fantastic music provided by Leroy, Katja and Todd! It was perfect for our event – which was held in a home in the French Quarter. Many people came to the fundraiser because of the music and everyone had a wonderful time. The music was definitely a highlight for many and if you’re hosting a party or an event, this is the band you want!!!!"

"I have attended a few parties where Leroy Jones Group was the house band and they were all great experiences. Not only is everyone in the band tremendously talented, led by one of the best trumpet players/vocalists you will find anywhere -- not just New Orleans, but they do what they say they are going to do. They properly prepare, show up on time, and give a first-class performance. Whether you want them to swing their asses off (that's a good thing), play a more background role or something in between, the Leroy Jones Group can do it and do it well. I highly recommend them." K.V.

"Your band made our wedding fun, vibrant, unique, and very special to us. From the bottom of our hearts, all thanks go to you and your band. THANK YOU!!!!
We are looking forward seeing you perform again some time in the future. Already we are planning to spend our first anniversary back in New Orleans. We can't wait."
