We’ve been been dedicated to putting out the best music from New Orleans for over twenty years. Jazz Fest in New Orleans is here, and now is your chance to see great performances from the artists putting out these three new releases, as well as many more!
Bonerama – Bonerama Plays Zeppelin
For over twenty years Bonerama has been breaking down expectations of what a rock band can be by rocking people’s socks off with three trombones in the front line backed by sousaphone, guitar, and drums, frequently playing funked-up, brassy renditions of classic rock songs. Their latest album, Bonerama Plays Zeppelin, tackles covers of the ultimate rock band Led Zeppelin in ways you couldn’t imagine. The album is available in a variety of unique, limited vinyl formats, pick one up before they run out!

Lena Prima – Prima La Famiglia
Lena Prima’s first album on Basin Street Records, Prima La Famiglia, debuted at #10 on the Billboard Jazz Charts for good reason. The polished big-band/swing album explores many songs from the songbook of her father, Louis Prima, the legendary singer and trumpeter from New Orleans. Lush orchestrations and arrangements of these classic songs carry on the Italian-American tradition of the Prima family name.
