Leroy Jones Quintet @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
The legendary jazz trumpeter Leroy Jones is known to music lovers as the “keeper of the flame” for traditional New Orleans jazz and to critics as one of the top musicians ever produced by the Crescent City. “The mission of the Leroy Jones Quintet is to expose audiences everywhere to the authentic music of New Orleans, the music of Louis Armstrong, Buddy Bolden, Danny Barker and all the other greats who have helped create the rich gumbo that is the sound of New Orleans,” he says, “while putting our own more modern stamp on it.” Jones himself, a native of New Orleans, whose playing has been described as a blend of Louis Armstrong and bebop virtuoso Clifford Brown, has been a critical figure in the history of New Orleans music. A member of the New Orleans Jazz Hall of Fame, he was leader at the tender age of 12, of the seminal Fairview Band, a brass band whose alumni have included some of the best known musicians in New Orleans. It was the Fairview Brass Band which is widely credited with restoring interest in the brass band tradition of New Orleans. Today, in fact, New Orleans has more brass bands performing than at any time in the city’s history – an achievement that can be traced back directly to the Fairview Band and its successor the Leroy Jones Hurricane Brass Brand. A regular at Preservation Hall in New Orleans and a featured performer in the Harry Connick Orchestra, where his[...]

Mason Ruffner Band @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Mason Ruffner’s musical roots begin in the late 1960’s when the Fort Worth, Texas native heard the supernatural guitar prowess of Jimi Hendrix and the lyrical genius of Bob Dylan. Mason’s lineage can be traced to modern rock back to its post-war origins, digging the sounds of Jimmy Reed, BB King and Robert Johnson.  In his early career, Mason tried modern rock and folk music but the blues would not let go.  Robert Ealey, noted blues singer from Fort Worth, invited Mason to the house band, The Five Careless Lovers, at Fort Worth’s now legendary Bluebird Lounge.  What follows is Mason’s formative period as a guitarist and stage performer. Mason left Fort Worth and contributed to the music scenes in California and New York before finding himself in New Orleans in the late 1970’s.  New Orleans proves to be a rich environment for Mason.  After a few years of playing in bands on Bourbon Street, Mason decided to find his own voice and started his own band, The Blues Rockers.  The band had a steady performance calendar at Club 544 and played more than 200 live shows each year.  The Blues Rockers became one of the most popular bands in the Crescent City and backed blues legends, Lightin’ Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, Memphis Slim and many more.  In his audience, you could find Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana, and ZZ Top who dropped in to listen or sit in with Mason.  Mason can be found in performances or recordings[...]

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.
