The “Levee Jazz Band” can add a unique mixture of New Orleans flavor and a party atmosphere to any function. The cordial tones of the Guitar or Banjo mixed with the melodic lines of the Flugelhorn and fused together with the Upright Bass, Jazz Drummer and Vocals provide for a festive atmosphere in those situations that don’t require a large orchestra. We can tailor the size of the band from 2 pieces to a 5 or 6 piece Brass Band and even add a Grand Marshall if needed.
Specializing in music ranging from Dixieland Jazz and Mardi Gras /Second Line sound, traditional jazz standards, swing and blues, the group has played conventions, jazz dinners, weddings, parties, etc.
We are so happy we hired Levee Jazz Band for our wedding welcome reception! The band was very professional, showed up on time, took any special requests and was just all around THE BEST! I cannot say enough good things about Larry and his band.
Outstanding performance for my small intimate wedding. Played trumpet solo while I walked down the aisle...it was beautiful.
Levee Jazz Band was perfect for our corporate event! They played a great selection of music and were very entertaining. They were easy to work with, quick to respond, and very friendly. Thanks for putting on a great show! I highly recommend them!
Made our event amazing! Will look to hire next year!
Fantastic guys. Gave the perfect vibe for our party.
I booked the Levee Jazz Band for my 40th b-day in NOLA, and they were the perfect choice. Excellent musicians, and very easy to work with. I'd definitely recommend them to others.
The band was there on time. Their music was great. They provided a festive atmosphere for the party but were not too loud. Everyone enjoyed them.

Response from "Levee Jazz Band":
What a wonderful event....except for the weather....We were going to play a little longer but it seemed like the venue manager wanted to shut it down right on time. Wishing both bride and groom the BEST of everything in life !!!!!
Played a rehearsal dinner and each and every person greatly enjoyed them. Perfect for an all ages event. I highly recommend them and would book them again.
The band was a perfect fit for our event, they added a fantastic vibe and we only ever heard positive comments about them!
Larry and the Levee Jazz Band were outstanding. They selected music that fit our group's age group and readily accommodated requested. We are a Navy group and they incorporated Anchors Away for us and Larry played Taps for us at our memorial ceremony for our departed shipmates. Best group we have ever had.
The Levee Jazz Band played for our open house and they helped make our party a huge success. They were professional, their sound is great and we will use them again.
