Their frontman is the charismatic, Louis Armstrong-sounding, soulful and sweet, James Williams. The band is packed with the best talent from New Orleans and they play the original styles with extraordinary passion.

"Young devotees whose balance of spunk and funk keeps the heart of traditional jazz beating..." (The New Yorker).
