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.

Happy Hour with Nicole Ockmond
As a child, Nicole listened to the music of her siblings, parents, & grandparents. Exposure to all of these different types of music helped to shape her own eclectic taste. She discovered her talent for singing while in boot camp for the Army National Guard. When she returned home she joined a local band and learned how to play guitar, write her own songs, produce & record her music. Nicole started her own independent record label, Emovere Recordings.

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.
