New Orleans Garden District Orchestra
The NOGDO is an amazing big band jazz orchestra with a music library of classic songs spanning the entire jazz era. The repertoire ranges from pre-jazz marches and society songs from the 1890's through the 1910's. Then bursts into the jazz era beginning in 1917 with arrangements leading to current writters today.
This amazing jazz ensemble features artists who have perfected their craft and have a unique New Orleans sound and feel.
The Artists ... fine tuned craftsmen ... simply the best at what they love to do!
As Hansen says, "so long as we perform with intensity, a groove and swing, everything falls into place."
"We can take an older arangement and swing it with a unique New Orleans feel adding an amazing dimention to this already beautiful music"
