Have you been tasked to source a funeral band for a loved one’s final journey? Maybe a friend or family member has requested a New Orleans Jazz Band to play at their funeral. You may find the request strange or even a little “left field”. Not to worry. There is nothing more uplifting than a Funeral Jazz Band playing the cortege up to the chapel. We have been supplying such a band for twenty years and offer a professional and sensitive service, countrywide, at a sensible price

New Orleans Jazz Funeral Band

So why do people choose a funeral band playing New Orleans Jazz? Whenever we ask this question, invariably the same answer comes back. It is from watching the 1970’s James Bond Film “Live and Let Die”. The opening scene is a New Orleans Jazz funeral that features the band playing “Just a Closer Walk With Thee” on the streets of New Orleans.

Genuine Testimonials: 

”The New Orleans Funeral Jazz Band gave my brother the best send off ever imagined at his funeral celebration yesterday. Jeff’s Band arrived well before time. He met immediate family, played before, during and after the service.

We went for an upbeat celebration which the Band achieved to perfection. The whole gathering were saying it was the best funeral ever. They loved the style and the manner in which Jeff and his Band conducted themselves.If you have ever fancied a real ‘send off’ which will not upset the older generation and take the pain out of a funeral, then go for Jeff and his Band.Ken Venables and Family

Hi Jeff,
Sorry it’s taken a while to send this note but I have been a bit preoccupied. The family and I’d like to thank you and the other Swamp Dogs for your excellent playing at mum’s funeral. Meeting the hearse with music and walking her into the crem was really beautiful. It set the tone for a sad but uplifting send off. Having you play helped to make the service truly reflect the spirit of Eileen. The song during the service had people crying and smiling at the same time. And it was so nice to continue to the flower viewing area. So many people have said that it was a wonderful service and lots said it was the best funeral they’ve ever been to! Even the funeral director took a photo!
Many many thanks. Denise Bissell
