Krewe de Roux- Is a Trad Jazz Band (New Orleans Tradition Jazz) in many ways, while sprinkling their own flavor on everything played, just like a gumbo (hence the Roux). Tarricone created this band to be able to bring a mellower project into restaurants, smaller bars, and private parties/events that want an engaging show with their audience, without it being too loud or aggressive. Roux’s huge list of material ranges from Louis Armstrong to Ray Charles and all things in between while focusing on music written between 1920-1969, including quite a few originals played in this style as well…. This band SWINGS hard!! and with vocals on top it keeps audiences engaged and having fun all night, whether they want to dance or sit back and listen. Krewe de Roux performs both as a Trio featuring Tarricone on Guitar/Vocals, Henley Douglas Jr on Saxophone, and Theo Brierley on Standup Bass (w/no drums) for mellower gigs, but can also adds a small cocktail drum kit with brushes played by Derek Hayden, making the band a four piece, when its preferred. Derek also sings when he is joining the group on drums which adds a nice layer of two vocals along with the 4 piece.
