DUKES OF DIXIELAND
If you want Jazz at its finest, then you want the DUKES of Dixieland. In the past you could find them at “DUKES’ PLACE,” their Jazz Club atop the Monteleone Hotel in the French Quarter with the blessing of its previous owner, Louis Prima. You can now see and hear them on their paddle boat, STEAMBOAT NATCHEZ, on the Mississippi River, their home base.
The DUKES of Dixieland now accept only 15 engagements a year with orchestras, festivals and Performing Arts Centers in the United States and overseas. In-between, they continue to perform on their dinner cruise, over 300 nights a year to an average of 500 folks per night.
The DUKES have recorded Patriotic and Pop songs as a salute to the music of the Andrew Sisters for the Off-Broadway Show of the same name which features The Victory Bells from the World War II Museum.
“The DUKES were wonderful. The Mardi Gras weekend is now referred to as “fantasy weekend”. I want to thank you for the second year in a row and we could not have pulled it off without you.”
