Birthday parties, bat or bar mitzvahs, weddings, corporate, whatever the event calls for, live bands are an exceptional choice. Set the tone and generate a unique atmosphere for your event by taking advantage of the fine musicians our area has to offer.

"Harry Hardin and New Orleans Finest Musicians were an amazing addition to our event. They were professional, talented, and extremely accommodating to our unique needs. They arrived early, introduced themselves and set-up and preformed without any guidance or direction... it was one less thing for me to have to worry about - they gave me confidence that it was all under control and the music was perfect.
We will certainly be using this band for our next event!"
