Happy Hour with Joshua Paxton
At five Joshua Paxton received a little yellow toy piano that he banged on for years, playing along with TV jingles and music on the radio by ear.  At 11 his parents gave into his pleas for piano lessons and bought him his first piano.  Though classically trained, by the end of high school he saw his future in jazz. As an undergraduate he attended the University of Miami and Bowling Green University, then went on to study under Ellis Marsalis at the University of New Orleans, earning a master’s degree in Jazz Piano. His diverse musical background ranges from avant-garde jazz to stints with major label rock bands.  Currently, he is focusing on his unique approach to New Orleans Rhythm and Blues piano style.

Nayo Jones
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.

Happy Hour with Charlie Miller
New Orleans native Charlie Miller is an old friend to several instruments (flute, piano and trumpet), but the trumpet is his first love. His music career began rather uniquely, to say the least. He began by playing the family washing machine hose, then graduated to a beat-up old trumpet an elderly gentleman gave him at the age of 12. In 8th grade, he connected with a young musician who would prove to be a lasting friend and fellow professional – Dr. John. Miller performed with Dr. John’s early band, arranged, produced and performed on many of the now classic New Orleans R&B recordings and still had time to attend Loyola School of Music. Miller left New Orleans to enroll in the Manhattan School of Music. After graduating, he worked with Thelonious Monk, Dr. John’s, Chuck Mangione, the Saturday Night Live Band, Paul Jeffrey, the New York Ballet, Bill Watrous, BB King, Danny Barker, Lou Rawls, Johnny Adams, Al Hirt, and many more. He also participated in the bands for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show and the Conan O’Brien Show. Charlie was also a jazz combo instructor at Loyola University, and his current activities include New Orleans area live performances and new recording projects.
