-The New Orleans Jazz Revival Band-
"Any time we play, it's a religious experience, regardless of whether it's a second-line or a hymn. Music makes people dance, sing, clap, jump up and down. That is a very religious, spiritual experience, whether they know it or not, and its been part of our culture in New Orleans for 300 years." - Matt Lemmler
It’s the spirit of Ubuntu that has brought together Matt Lemmler's spiritually moving New Orleans Jazz Revival Band to tell this 300 year story of New Orleans music. From African melodies and rhythms, to classical etudes, to gospel chants (Wade in the Water), to New Orleans dirges (St.James Infirmary Blues). Matt Lemmler's New Orleans Jazz Revival Band will add a chapter to the long history of New Orleans music!
