Krewe de ROUX= Trad Jazz, Dixieland, spiced up, NOLA style. Playing swinging, fun songs people know with catchy lyrics, mostly from the 1920’s-1960’s, and sprinkling their own flavor on everything played, just like a gumbo (hence the ROUX). Created by Brandon Tarricone and Henley Douglas Jr. this band is able to bring a mellower sound into restaurants, smaller bars, and private parties/events that want a fun, engaging show with their audience, without it being too aggressive. Roux’s huge list of material ranges from Louis Armstrong to Ray Charles and all things in between, including a list of originals written in the style….. This band SWINGS hard!! and the vocals on top keep audiences coming back again to dance, sit back and listen, or sing along. Krewe de Roux performs both as a Trio featuring Tarricone on Guitar/Vocals, Henley Douglas Jr on Saxophone, and Theo Brierley on Upright Bass (w/no drums), and also as a Four piece adding in a cocktail style drum kit played with brushes by Derek Hayden who also sings, and swings out the audiences dancing shoes. This band was started in 2016 as a side project for Tarricone and Douglas to play in the style and has blossomed with the release of their first album in 2018 and over 200 shows most of which are venues they continuously play.
