Our Story

During the mid-1990’s NewOrleansJazz.com was built as a website to promote and offer local talented jazz artists for corporate events and private functions in conjunction with Hansen Music Productions, LLC. The site was extremely successful and provided many performance opportunities for musicians. We booked hundreds of corporate events and many concerts and festivals worldwide.  Following Hurricane Katrina the site was out-of-date and offered only basic options. The present site has been updated and it is our goal to provide as much work and as many performance opportunities as possible for our local jazz musicians, bands and artists in New Orleans and worldwide.

We love and respect our customers.
