Bags Howard and his orchestra made our wedding day perfect! They were easy to work with, responsive to questions from me and from our venue. When we asked if they could play a particular song so that one of our friends could sing, they were accommodating: although they never had a chance to practice together, it sounded like they had all been playing together for months. Most of all, their music made everyone happy and want to dance, which was the whole point. I would recommend them in a heartbeat!

The Bags Howard New Orleans style band was absolutely wonderful to work with. Bags and I talked about my needs for the mock funeral---time, location, clothing, music, etc. They arrived on time, as promised, hung out with the crowd until time to get started and led our procession on to the church in true New Orleans tradition. Nothing could have gone smoother. Everyone was impressed and appreciative of their talent and professionalism. Without exception--I HIGHLY recommend them!!
