Nayo Jones Experience
Apr 1 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
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.

Marc Von Em Duo
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Marc Von Em Duo @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Marc Von Em is a one man band of sorts, able to create amazing amounts of sound and diversity through his voice and one faithful guitar. His chops are wide-ranging, from delicate finger picking to rambunctious Pete Townsend type strumming. Marc’s guitar serves as more than one instrument as he uses it to create percussive beats and, like Willie Nelson’s and Tom Emmanuel’s, it wears the scars of his passion for playing. Marc is able to seamlessly switch his vibe, his dynamic voice can go from smooth & soaring to smoky scatting. His harmonica playing is equally impressive and he sometimes uses it to accompany Muddy Waters style blues on guitar. His live shows showcase his original music, influenced by folk, funk and blues, with a few choice cover songs woven in. As one reviewer wrote: “If you haven’t seen Marc Von Em perform live, you’re only cheating yourself.”

Michael Watson presents: the Alchemy @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States

He’s played in four All-State Jazz Bands, the Grammy Jazz Ensemble, which included top high school students in the world at the 2003 Grammy Awards Party as well as the Tri-C All Star Jazz Band at the Tri-C Jazz Festival. He has continued honing his craft by pursuing Jazz Studies degrees at Cuyahoga Community College and the University of New Orleans. After joining the marines in 2006, his call of duty brought him to New Orleans the summer after Katrina, where he quickly assimilated into the local music scene as a highly skilled and sought-out trombonist. He has since completed his active duty services and spends his time performing throughout the city and traveling the world with several bands, including jazz ensembles, brass bands, and more.

Stanton Moore Trio featuring David Torkanowski and James Singleton @ Little Gem saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Born and raised in New Orleans, Stanton Moore is a dedicated drummer and performer especially connected to the city, its culture and collaborative spirit. Driven and inspired by the thriving music scene of his hometown which includes such greats as Professor Longhair, Doctor John and The Meters, Moore’s name is now mentioned amongst these Big Easy mainstays. In the early ’90s, Moore helped found the New Orleans-based essential funk band Galactic. Their first album, 1996’s widely acclaimed Coolin’ Off, led to an intense tour schedule of nearly 200 gigs a year for the next ten years. Building on their fan base by adding an esteemed list of all-star collaborations to the six albums that followed, Galactic continues to amass a worldwide audience via recording and touring globally. Moore launched his solo career in 1998 aided by eight-string guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter and saxophonist Skerik (Les Claypool, John Scofield, Roger Waters). The group recorded All Kooked Out! featuring a handful of local New Orleans musicians as well. In the midst of these recording sessions yet another concept was taking shape. Outtakes turned into the first Garage a Trois release, Mysteryfunk(1999). In 2000 the trio, led by Moore behind the drum kit, was joined by percussionist Mike Dillon (Les Claypool, Ani DiFranco) and has since released three more albums – Emphasizer in 2003, Outre Mer in 2005 and Power Patriot in 2009. Moore extended his solo discography with the release of Flyin’ the Koop (Verve/Blue Thumb) in 2001, and III (Telarc) in[...]

Post graduation, they went their separate ways, but after Katrina, each returned to their hometown, inherently becoming active members in the rebuilding of a community that’s stronger than ever. 

With numerous releases under their belt, the crew is currently working on their latest full-length album, BOSS, and building Downman Sounds, a recording studio in New Orleans East. The Tribe can be found crisscrossing the US just about every week of the year, from Key West to California, including regular performances at the notable New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest and Voodoo Fest.
