you again for an evening of music certainly of a caliber with an evening

Gillespie about 20 years ago, when we lived in NYC."
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
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.
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
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.
