    Hire them right now!

    You should hire Nola Dukes Band right now! We hired a string trio for our ceremony and their 8-piece band for our reception. They also helped to connect us with Big Fun Brass band for our Second Line. Everything was wonderful. They played all of our first dance songs live and nailed each of them - especially my husband and I's first dance song (It's Been a Long Long Time by Harry James; it was really important to us that it was played live since it has such a good jazz band feel to it).

    Randi was absolutely wonderful to work with. Her excitement and energy leading up to our wedding was infectious and her understanding and execution of our music vision was perfect - we don't love top 100 songs and we didn't hear any of them at the reception. Randi herself was one of the lead singers and helped to MC the night, keeping the crowd energized and engaged.

    I was a bit nervous since there aren't a ton of videos available online of their live performances, but that is because other musicians have stolen their arrangements (if you ask, they will send you samples directly) and I shouldn't have been worried. Live music was the most important aspect of our wedding when planning and I would choose Nola Dukes a million times again.

    Randi is the best!

    Through the recomendation from a friend, we went to listen to Nola Dukes Band at a local venue. After listening to them and talking to Randi we knew they would be a great band for our wedding. We went to hear them play one more time and then booked them for our May 2020 wedding. Randi was easy to talk to, made suggestions for what we needed, and was responsive to all my questions. Then Covid and stay at home orders! So our May wedding did not happen. After talking to all of our vendors we decided to re schedule for July 2020. (Our wedding was smaller so we were able to proceed.) Covid caused some extra stress and challenges (and lots of tears too) in re scheduling our wedding, but Randi was there every step of the way. She was flexible and we made the needed modifications in order to have our wedding in July. Our friends and family were so excited to celebrate with us and we all had a fabulous evening. It was an evening we all needed and the band provided the environment for us to celebrate being together. I would recommend Nola Dukes Band to anyone who is looking to have a celebration- big or small. I wish everyone success moving forward in these uncertain times. Thanks again to Randi and The Nola Dukes Band for making our wedding so enjoyable and fabulous.
