Start the party - hire Nola Dukes!!

The Nola Dukes were the very first vendor we booked for our wedding - if you're like us and know you want live music, look no further! Randi and team were an absolute joy to work without throughout the process. Her attention to detail, immense knowledge of the industry, and commitment to excellence shine through from day one. The band went ABOVE AND BEYOND our expectations and worked to ensure that all the pieces that made the day special and personal to us were included. Trust Randi to guide you through the process; the band creates so much of the guest experience at the wedding and she knows how to perfect the flow and vibe! Thank you, Randi and the Nola Dukes, for making our day so fun!
