Steve Pistorius

New Orleans native Steve Pistorius has been a professional Jazz Pianist for 40 plus years. He specializes in the early forms of New Orleans Jazz, influenced by many past greats but mostly by one of the originators of Jazz music, New Orleans pianist and composer Jelly Roll Morton. At home, Steve is a regular at Preservation Hall, Palm Court Jazz Cafe and Steamboat Natchez. He plays the French Quarter Fest and Jazz Fest every year, and led his own Southern Syncopators at the 2016 Jazz Fest. Steve has recorded extensively with many top Jazz players both in his name and with Duke Heitger, John Gill, Dr. Michael White, Bob Wilber, Wynton Marsalis, and Chris Tyle. Outside of New Orleans, Steve’s credits include performances at the Lincoln Center, Village Vanguard, Carnegie Hall, and the Apollo Theatre. He’s played major festivals and venues in the U.S., Europe, South America, Middle East and the Far East. Steve has just released his third cd with his most recent musical project featuring the outstanding reed duo Orange Kellin and James Evans and the talented young percussionist Benny Amon.

Trumpeter and vocalist Mark Braud is the quintessence of the New Orleans spirit. His energetic interpretations of melody craft a freshly unpredictable spin on the tradition of jazz and the down-home, honest grooves of New Orleans. Born in New Orleans, Braud comes from a family of world-renowned musicians. Traditional jazz, R&B, and the great American songbook inspire his engaging music. A member of Harry Connick, Jr.’s band since 2011, Braud can currently be seen 5 days a week on Connick’s syndicated television show, Harry. He served as the leader of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band from 2008 to 2016. He has played with a who’s who of the music industry, ranging from the Treme Brass Band, the Marsalis family, and Allen Toussaint, all the way to the Foo Fighters, John Oates, Tom Waits, My Morning Jacket, Mos Def, Elvis Costello, and Erykah Badu. Braud’s work as a composer and performer can be seen in several episodes of Treme, American Horror Story, Sonic Highways, and NCIS: New Orleans. Braud has played many of the world’s premier music venues, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, the Hollywood Bowl, the White House, the Grand Palace for the King of Thailand, and more intimate settings: the Blue Note, Snug Harbor, Ronnie Scott’s, and Preservation Hall.
