We're here to offer a refreshing alternative to the standard wedding band with swinging sets of Jazz, Blues, Dixieland, Country, New Orleans Funk and Roots Rock and we're always happy to add a few of your favorites to add to the list. Most of the clips that I've posted are of my of my original music, the covers we play are to a large degree the artists and songs that inspire me - Dr. John, The Meters, Bob Dylan, Fats Domino, Sam Cooke, Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, Muddy Waters, Frank Sinatra, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, The Band and lots of local New Orleans artists. Ted Hefko's New Orleans Band consists of myself on Vocals, Sax & Clarinet and Acoustic Guitar along with electric guitar, electric bass, keyboard and drums/vocals with the addition of horns for larger events.

Ted Hefko and The Thousandaires have three albums of originals, featuring our unique blend of New Orleans Jazz and Roots Rock. Our latest, "Distillations of The Blues" has been played on blues radio, the world over. We perform regularly at 30x90, DMac's, Old Point Bar, Old Arabi Bar, Teddy's Juke Joint, and many others. We travel quite frequently and throughout the gulf coast and even make trips to the eastern seaboard, so don't hesitate to contact us outside the New Orleans Area. We've brought our unique sound to Zachary, LA. Natchez, MS. Lubbick, TX. Tulsa, OK, Charleston, SC, Nashville, TN and Thomas WV to name few!

Ted Hefko and his band were absolutely amazing. Everyone kept asking where did you find them. They preformed an obscure French song for our first dance. More than one person is considering them for their wedding! Thank you Ted so much!

Without a doubt, one of the best parts of our wedding reception last August was having Ted and his band come up to from Brooklyn. We stumbled upon his listing here and couldn't have been more pleased with the timeliness, accommodation, and professionalism he and his crew showed throughout the event. The band played longer than our agreed upon time, which was great! When asked why, the answer was; "When we're playing to people who appreciate the music, we get into it too!". It is obvious Ted loves his genre and the craft of making music. Were we to do it again, we wouldn't change a thing!

Ted is very professional with a wonderful voice. He and his four piece band were a great addition to our New Orleans themed cocktail hour. Ted was always available to us prior to the event and the entire band was there early on the day of our wedding. We gave Ted a rough idea of the music we wanted to hear and he put together a terrific set.
