Doombalaya

Combining the sounds of New Orleans with funk, jazz and world music, Doombalaya brings a wall of sound to their regular gigs at the Maison on Frenchmen. Formed from a group of Tulane jazz students and forged on the stages of Amsterdam, Ghana and Italy, Doombalaya has become a musical powerhouse that pays tribute to all things strange and delightful. With Ethan Stern on keyboard, Nick Benoit on bass, Matt Rosen on guitar, Jason Winikoff on drums and percussion, Ari Kohn on tenor sax, Matt van Houten on baritone sax and Cleveland Donald on trumpet, this group is poised to take it to the big time in New Orleans with their debut album coming in 2013.
