John Zarsky is a trumpet player, vocalist, composer, and arranger based in New Orleans. John’s musical lineage traces back through three generations of women: sitting behind his mother as she played the church organ each Sunday just as she had, and his mother’s mother sitting behind John’s great grandmother, Ida. At eleven, John received the same Bach Stradivarius trumpet his mother played in the college marching band where she and John’s father met. During his formative years, John performed and studied with members of the Austin Symphony and Chorus Austin before entering the University of Texas music performance program under the mentorship of jazz trombone virtuoso Ron Westray and former Woody Herman trumpeter Dennis Dotson. After college, John moved to New Orleans where he has performed and toured with artists such as Ellis Marsalis, Peter Berstein, Larry Grenadir, and Leroy Jones. John Zarsky performs regularly with The Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Amazingly Talented, On-Time, Professional with unbelievably low prices
I'm a musician myself and music is very important to me. John and his 3 piece band did an amazing job. My wife and I were very happy with their service. They arrived on time, we very professional, and were very adaptive to last minute changes we made. You won't find a better guy for a better price!!!Sent on 05/02/2019

Rose to the occasion and exceeded our expectations.
My husband laid it on pretty thick—there were many musicians in attendance at our wedding and the bar was set high. John made sure his pianist learned our selections for the ceremony and easily pulled off our last minute picks for jazz standards for our family dances at the reception. He gave our cocktail hour such a cool, jazzy vibe. Guests had nothing but good things to say.Sent on 05/13/2019

The Trad Stars did an amazing job for our ceremony music! John was extremely responsive and a pleasure to work with. The band learned all of the songs that we requested and played them beautifully. Thank you for a magical and unforgettable evening!Sent on 05/08/2016
