If you like nice and easy jazzmusic, not too loud and in a cosy atmosphere, played by musicians who still have fun in making that particular music, well then you will be pleased to hear the NEW ORLEANS RED BEANS, a Dutch band that has specialised in playing Dixieland in a very old form. The ’connoisseurs’ prefer to call it ”new orleans revival”. It is the way dixieland was played on the turn of the century in New Orleans. Music meant to entertain, to dance to or just quietly enjoy. The NEW ORLEANS RED BEANS, founded in 1985, successfully create the right atmosphere by adjusting themselves to the circumstances. No wonder, that this band obtained a very good reputation among the new•orleans•revival• lovers. Many festivalorganisers show their appreciation by booking the band again after a successful ’gig’. And so the band performed in Germany, Belgium, England and ofcourse throughout Holland.
