Nayo Jones Experience @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Nayo Jones hails from a family of musicians; she was destined to be in “the business.” As a child Nayo sang and danced her way through life. She belted out Supreme songs at talent shows in grade school and mimicked Whitney Houston in front of the mirror. Nayo’s father William “Doc” Jones, a Jazz musician and music educator born and raised in Chicago noticed her musical gift & helped nurture her natural ability from the very beginning. Growing up surrounded by classic jazz and Motown hits Nayo answered her calling at an early age. Nayo wows her crowds and gains loyal fans with her sultry voice and her passion for every performance. To name just a few of her credits, Nayo debuted at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in 2012, she’s opened for such greats as Chris Botti, Otis & the Temptations, The Whispers & Lakeside. In addition to performing her own show, currently Nayo performs and tours as a featured vocalist with New Orleans icon, Kermit Ruffins and the Barbeque Swingers. Though a babe in the music industry she already has the savvy of some of the most classic female artists and has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. Ticket purchase does not include a table reservation.
