Musician Backgrounds

The Yat Pack is a New Orleans-based band modeled on the 60's Vegas Swing Era. They perform classic big band numbers by Sinatra, Prima, Dean Martin, and Bobby Darin as well as contemporary artists like Michael Bublé, Billy Joel, Joe Cocker and Harry Connick Jr. They also mix in a healthy dose of New Orleans R&B and traditional jazz. The Yat Pack delivers diversity, style and class.

The Messy Cookers Jazz Band is one of the hottest, new traditional jazz/swing groups in New Orleans. The band consists of 6 members, Alex Owen on trumpet, Russel Ramirez on trombone, Christopher Johnson on reeds, Benny Amon on drums, Tate Carson on bass, and David Bandrowski on guitar and banjo. The band was formed by Benny Amon and Alex Owen, who were both looking to play traditional jazz and swing music. Soon the band grew to include many other members on the scene.

Glen David Andrews , a native son of New Orleans, started on the bass drum as a child. Andrews soon picked up the trombone and was blowing a joyful noise by the time he was 12. He practiced his musicianship and showmanship with the city's most energetic brass bands, from New Birth and L'il Rascals to ReBirth and Treme. That presence and sweetness have long endeared Andrews to audiences at his regular gigs around New Orleans. In recent years, he began making waves as a headliner at the world's biggest block party - the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. His new album, Redemption, will be released this year.

Creole Sweet Tease Burlesque mixes traditional burlesque and traditional New Orleans jazz to provide a unique, classy experience that reverts back to the days of Storyville when hot jazz and burlesque were king! Starring the charming original comedian/magician, "Magic" Mike Dardant, the top Burlesque Show performers in the world: Trixie Minx, Roxie LeRouge, Piper Marie, and Madame Mystere, and the top jazz musicians in New Orleans, The Creole Syncopators featuring Jayna Morgan on vocals, Tom Fischer on clarinet/saxophone, Joe Kennedy on piano, Kerry Lewis on bass, and Gerald French on drums.
