    Professional and talented

    This is the band you want for your wedding or other special event. They are so talented and clearly love what they do. The music was outstanding - we got compliments from guests all night about it - and the music is very customizable. Bryant worked with us weeks and months beforehand to ensure we had certain songs played, certain songs avoided, and music style suited to our liking - including my request to fill their (short) set breaks with Bollywood music. They handled special requests with ease, including a two song combo first dance and a one live song / one DJ played song combo for the father daughter dance. At one point I wanted to sing to my new husband, so I did, totally unplanned. The singer joyfully gave me the mic, which I thought was so sweet and generous of her because it was an unplanned moment and the band did not know I could sing. On rewatch of the video, the band actually did several things musically to help me out! They slowed down the second verse to give my groom time to get on stage for me to continue singing to him. They truly used their talent for improvisation and adaptation musically to make the night special for the two of us. We were incredibly lucky to work with these super talents, not just for their musical ability but also for their kindness, respect, and humility. They do a great job of hyping up the couple and the families without upstaging the event, too, which is a tricky balance to hit well for many wedding bands / DJs. I love that they played Nola staples that me and the groom knew well, but that the guests did not, and upon realizing this, the singer effortlessly taught the audience the chorus so we would not have that pressure. Could not thank them enough for their attentiveness and care. Book them for your ceremony music too. The singer and guitarist were outstanding and added so much positive emotion to my walk to my groom. THANK YOU!

    So grateful!

    We LOVED the NOLA Dukes. We hired the 7-piece band for our reception and also had the band facilitate the sound and recorded music for the ceremony, and everything was flawless. We felt so seen throughout the planning process and the attention to detail and organization was amazing. The band, comprised of incredibly talented and quality musicians, played the perfect mix of music and were such kind people. They got everyone moving on the dance floor and the guests couldn’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed it for weeks afterwards. We are so grateful we hired them!
