Saxophonist and vocalist Aurora Nealand has been playing in various groups in New Orleans since 2005, and the Royal Roses, founded in 2010, was her first venture as a bandleader. The Royal Roses draw their repertoire heavily from Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhart, and traditional jazz of New Orleans. They seek to breathe new energy, arrangements, and compositions into this genre of music while exploring and learning from its rich history and tradition. They have performed in New Orleans at French Quarter Festival, Satchmo SummerFest, and Preservation Hall, as well as in New York City at the Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival. Their first album, A Tribute to Sydney Bechet: Live at Preservation Hall, was released in 2011 to national acclaim.
All concerts this season will feature a bar serving white wine and beer.
Admission to each show is $10, free for THNOC members, and includes three complimentary beverages. All shows are held at 533 Royal Street, and THNOC’s gift shop and first floor galleries will be open for extended hours during the concerts.
