MORNINGTON WINTER JAZZ & BLUES FESTIVAL EVENT
The inspiration to establish the New Orleans Connection stemmed from the band leader’s USA tour in 2012. Whilst performing in New Orleans, he discovered what some call the ‘New Orleans Connection’. On returning to Australia, Paul’s first mission was to establish the New Orleans Connection Jazz Band and ‘hand-pick’ the musicians who could provide this vibrant jazz style and the new sound he was seeking.
Individually, the musicians are certainly no strangers to the jazz world but collectively they provide a ‘great base for some mighty fine mainstream and traditional jazz’. The high levels of enthusiasm along with the variety and quality of the music performed has resulted in a rapid acceptance and ever increasing following of this new band.
