New Orleans Style Brass Band with a generous helping of Jazz, old R & B and other spicy music!
Price Range: (phone number hidden)
What to Expect
We will bring New Orleans music and a spirited performance to any venue or event. We are 9 instrumentalists and a singer so we are medium large. We make a mighty sound but are also capable of more subtle sounds here and there. We can provide our own sound if need be.
The Hoppin’ John Orchestra is a group of ten professional musicians from all corners of musical Philadelphia brought together to make great music. We specialize in several genres and subgenre’s including the New Orleans brass band style, Jazz, both modern and historic, Dixieland and pre-rock and roll rhythm and blues. A smattering of original hard-to-define compositions rounds out our eclectic but very listenable style. We play and have played clubs, bars, Jazz festivals, weddings and a funeral and are available for most any kind of special event or happening. The horn heavy sound and our talented vocalist tend to stand out whenever we play and the arrangements and transcriptions always bring folks to their feet. If you're looking for a New Orleans themed party or a Mardi Gras happening, we can give you as an authentic performance as any outside of the Vieux Carre itself!
