A CREOLE CHRISTMAS WITH THE NEW ORLEANS TRIBUTE FEATURING LEROY JONES
Born in 1958, trumpeter Leroy Jones was raised in New Orleanss Seventh Ward. He started playing cornet at St. Leo the Great Elementary School and soon got a trumpet. When he was twelve, his neighbor Danny Barker heard him practicing and recruited him for the Fairview Baptist Church Band, which Jones later led. Sometimes after finishing Fairview gigs in the French Quarter, Jones and his bandmates would stop by Preservation Hall to listen.

Jones went on to play with Harry Connick Jr. and His Orchestra and become a member of the New Orleans Jazz Hall of Fame. Trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard remembers growing up around Jones: He was the guy that was well ahead of his time. He played with a command and maturity that is still unmatched. When I listened to him play I always imagined myself having that tone, or his sense of phrasing, and definitely his sense of rhythm. He was and still is my hero. These days, when hes not on tour, Jones leads his own band at the Hall each week, delighting audiences with his impeccable technique, modern swing, and warm, gentle voice. He is married to Hall trombonist Katja Toivola.

New Orleans Tribute Band - New Orleans and Madison have had a special connection via music for over 20 years. The New Orleans Tribute keeps that connection alive in downtown Madison.
From the 504 of New Orleans to the 608 of Madison, The New Orleans Tribute brings the music of the Big Easy to the Midwest. Comprised of some of Madison's best jazz musicians, The New Orleans Tribute plays the best of New Orleans Jazz, Traditional Swing, New Orleans Second Line Music and New Orleans R&B.
Led by trombonist Darren Sterud, The New Orleans Tribute brings an authenticity to the music and the groove. They're able to play Friday Happy Hours, Saturday night house parties and club shows, and the Sunday afternoon Brunch. One thing is for sure and that is The New Orleans Tribute will make you feel like you're in French Quarter
