This was our 2nd Second Line Parade with the Jaywalkers and it was just as amazing as the first one. They take care of all the paperwork, so all you have to do is show up and have the time of your life! It will be an annual event for us from now on and we will always book the Jaywalkers!!!

Heather your group is so much fun! Costumes are great and everyone so polite but outrageous at the same time! We really appreciate you!

by Danielle M. on Jazzman Entertainment

We had the best time! I am so thankful for Darlene and the Jaywalkers setting everything up for us and parading us down Bourbon. It was the highlight of the weekend for sure!

Danielle - we literally could not do it - Without YOU! Thank you so much!, jerry

by Rick David on Jazzman Entertainment

When the bride and groom were pronounced husband and wife, the band began ro play. The energy was off the charts! Everyone present said it was the most amazing thing they had ever experienced. Darlene and the Jaywalkers could not have possibly provided any better entertainment. Our daughter and now son in-law were so very pleased.

5 stars is not enough!!!!

Thank you Jerry and Darlene and crew for an incredible night!!!!

Rick - we live for moments like this. Thank you so much for trusting the Jaywalkers to be a part of your daughter's wedding celebration!

by Rick G on Jazzman Entertainment

The Jaywalkers made my 50th Birthday Part Deux extra special. This group knows how to bring the French Quarter to live with their professional performance. They are the best because Darlene and Jerry went above and beyond to make this parade possible for my 50th Thank you Team !

OMG Rick you and Tim are awesome people and we love you so much!

by Allison Brockmann on Jazzman Entertainment

The rating needs a higher option than 5 stars! Darlene and The Jaywalkers were the highlight of my 40th Birthday wknd. Even the most unsure have been nonstop raving about how much fun they had and that this experience was once in a lifetime fabulous!

Darlene and Jerry make the entire process a dream…all of the logistics and fuss are removed from your plate when you work with them. All you do is show up, parasol in hand, and get ready to parade!! If you throw a party in New Orleans and you don’t hire The Jaywalkers, you didn’t do it right.

Allison - you looked like you were having so much fun!! This is what it is all about for us - when we see the joy on our guests faces. Thank you for leaving a kind review, sharing your pics and vids, and hiring The Jaywalkers!!!

by DeShon T on Jazzman Entertainment

They were tremendous. Even with the rain coming down on us, my family and I had a wonderful time with the Jaywalkers on my sisters' birthday parade.

They made the process of setting everything up very easy and the experience fun and memorable.

Hey DeShon - We really, Really appreciate you guys! Your twin sisters seemed to have fun - even in the rain! Actually - it kind of felt good - in a liberating kind of way to be out acting a fool in the rain! You guys are great sports. We appreciate your review, and your business! We also appreciate you sharing some videos, which we will post on social media. Thank You Very Much!

by Richard D on Jazzman Entertainment

Absolutely fantastic! Darlene and her crew really do take care of everything. Ready to go, on time, rain-or-shine, just a great group with fun songs and great knowledge of the area. Cannot recommend highly enough. We had a big bachelor party and they put up with us:) So they can certainly accommodate any group. Can't do New Orleans without a Second Line

Hey Richard - We are thrilled you had a great time with us! On behalf of all of The Jaywalkers Second Line Band - we really appreciate you - Thank You for Your Business!!

by Tammy Landes on Jazzman Entertainment

The experience you and your band have us is one that we will all remember for a live time.

We absolutely loved your song choices and having others in the French Quarters join in the fun!

You are all AMAZING!

Tammy - you, your husband and The Flamingos were so much fun! We really, really appreciate you ! In these uncertain times, an outdoor second Line Parade is really the Perfect way to celebrate!

by Bryan M on Jazzman Entertainment

The Jaywalkers for made my wife’s 50th Birthday celebration a huge hit! We were from out of town and had never been to New Orleans. They made the process very easy as they took care of everything. The Grand Marshall’s (Darlene) energy was great, the band was awesome, and the two stilt walkers caught everyone’s attention. If you want to surprise someone with an experience in New Orleans that they will never forget than this is a must!

Hey Bryan - I think we actually surprised Kathleen ! Shout of the The Astor Crowne Plaza for letting us come in and play in the lobby while ya'll were getting drinks at the bar. Yours was a super Fun event, and the epitome of what we like to do - take a group of fun people through the French Quarter with a brass band and police escort. Thank you from all the members of The Jaywalkers Second Line Band, plus the Stilt Walkers! We appreciate you taking the time to review us.

by Laura F. on Jazzman Entertainment

We hired The Jaywalkers to do a second line for my sister's bachelorette and they exceeded our expectations! Darlene and Jerry took care of the planning and organizing, which was a great relief. We had an absolute blast! I would definitely book them again and recommend to anyone.

Laura - we could not do it without YOU! Thank you so much from The Jaywalkers Second Line Band!

by Billy H. on Jazzman Entertainment

I hired the Gumbo Trio to play at my wife's 40th birthday party at Antoine's. They were amazing! I can't imagine the party without the classic New Orleans Jazz playing in the background. They were extremely professional, set up early and stayed until the last person left. Jerry made everything easy with the booking and planning process. I would not hesitate to recommend or use them again.

Billy I am so glad your wife's party was a hit! I wish I could have been there to play for you personally, but I knew you were in great hands. Thank you so much!

by Nick M. on Jazzman Entertainment

Easily the most memorable experience we had on our bachelor party trip! They had the perfect set up for us to surprise the bachelor with a phenomenal parade. The band was amazing, and Darlene and Jerry made the whole process a breeze by handling all the details.

I think the bachelor Garrett was truly surprised. Did you know Someone at Arnaud's Restaurant took a video of the band and your party's parade rounding the corner onto Bourbon Street and posted to Instagram - it's gotten over 29K views this week! Look it up on Arnaud's Restaurant IG. You guys are Rock Stars! Thanks Nick!

by John S on Jazzman Entertainment

Truly a legitimate New Orleans legend. The Jaywalkers knocked it out of the park.

John - we appreciate you so much - thank you! Darlene, Jerry & The Jaywalkers

by Russell F. on Jazzman Entertainment

A one-of-a-kind life experience that we will always cherish. Coming out of the pandemic we wanted to celebrate our friend who got married but missed his bachelor party. The Jaywalkers helped us from start to finish, and pulled off an unforgettable surprise! Thank you Darlene and Jerry, we had the time of our lives!

Russell - I think you really did Surprise him!!! It was a great time and we Thank You so much for helping keep Live Music ALIVE - especially right now!

by Steven R on Jazzman Entertainment

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! Darlene, Jerry, and the Jaywalkers helped us organize a parade for our friend's bachelor party and it was definitely the highlight of the trip. Highly recommended!!! THANK YOU!!!

Steven - We had a blast with your group - Thank You for letting us organize your Second Line!

by Amanda S. on Jazzman Entertainment

Jerry and Darlene did an amazing job arranging the Second Line for our daughter's 21st birthday. Other than the stress of not knowing if the city would resume giving out permits (halted due to the pandemic), it could not have been easier. It quite literally rained on our parade, but the band played on! We had the most wonderful time and have memories that will last forever. Highly recommend them!!!

We had a blast! Tiny bit of weather Won't Stop Our Fun! THANK YOU Amanda!

by Cindy T on Jazzman Entertainment

OMG! I loved it!! Best birthday ever! And they even paraded in the rain. Jerry & Darlene are WONDERFUL and so very helpful. The entire band was so friendly and wiling to go above and beyond. I must think of another occasion to do this AGAIN! Thanks again for a truly delightful birthday experience!

Cindy That will definitely be a Birthday to Remember! Thank you for spending it with The Jaywalkers!

by Liz T on Jazzman Entertainment

The Gumbo Trio was awesome!!! They provided the perfect entertainment/atmosphere for my uncles bday dinner. Highly recommend!

The Gumbo Trio Thanks YOU, Liz!!!

by Barbara W on Jazzman Entertainment

Wonderful group. Played everyone’s favorites!

Thanks for 5 Stars Barbara!

by Cait B on Jazzman Entertainment

We hired the Gumbo Trio for a birthday party at Arnaud's and they were terrific. They changed styles of music in between cocktail hour and dinner seamlessly. Excellent and professional communication! Would hire again in a heartbeat!

Thank you so Much Caitlin!

by Lori W on Jazzman Entertainment

So accommodating and everything they suggested was perfect! Meeting us at our rehearsal dinner to the route and ending point were perfect!

by Katie R on Jazzman Entertainment

The second line that the Jay Walkers coordinated and performed was the highlight of our wedding for many of our guests. The group coordinated well with the venue and DJ who was running sound for the ceremony. The band played beautifully and The Grand Marshall helped keep the crowds at Bay. The only negative comment was was it ran longer than we had originally asked which was a little far for some of our guests.

by Brain D on Jazzman Entertainment

It was such a good time - the highlight of the weekend! Thanks to everyone!

by Nick Z on Jazzman Entertainment

Jaywalkers - 5 stars!

by Lindsay C on Jazzman Entertainment

I wanted to officially thank you both for helping to make our program in New Orleans a success. The second line parade was by far one of the top highlights of the trip that our guests could not stop talking about!!

by Merrie E on Jazzman Entertainment

this was the best idea and we all had a blast! very professional to deal with and who doesn't like to have their own parade and shut down canal street for a few blocks! highly recommend the Jaywalkers!

by Nicole R on Jazzman Entertainment

Music was phenomenal and Jaywalkers members were incredible. This was by far the main highlight of our trip. I have been suggesting this group and experience to everyone since the moment we returned home. One of my favorite and Certainly most memorable experiences of my life!

by Douglas W on Jazzman Entertainment

made my birthday Second Line parade Unforgettable. Speedy, informative e-mails kept the process going and stress free. would definitely use them again!

by Greg D on Jazzman Entertainment

Everyone loved the band and the parade experience! Could not have asked for a more suiting way to celebrate our marriage. Very lively and fun to say the least. Could easily say it was one of the best if not the best part of the wedding celebration.

by Marjory W on Jazzman Entertainment

We hired The Jaywalkers for a second line parade in the French Quarter for my husband's 75th birthday. Our group of 20 family and friends ranged in age from 25 to 76. Everyone agreed it was the best party they had ever attended. The band is excellent. They play great dixieland music and everyone along the parade route comes pouring out of the bars and into the streets to watch or join your parade. We must be in thousands of people's videos of their vacation in New Orleans. Our parade Grand Marshall, Denise Embree, literally danced to the music for the entire length of the parade route. I would recommend having a second line parade for any special occasion. You will love it and your guests will love it. Denise will take care of all the details, parade permits, the police escort, and answer all your questions. You just show up ready to party, and they do all the rest.

by Mignon T on Jazzman Entertainment

When my daughter asked for a second line at her wedding I had no idea what that was...it turned out to be the most amazing parade in the French quarter that evening. The Jaywalkers kept the music playing and the crowd entertained. Truly an event our family and friends will be talking about for a very long time.

by Melissa D on Jazzman Entertainment

What an amazing night we had at our Welcome Night Destination Wedding Party. The Jaywalkers are incredibly experienced and amazing pros in their craft ~ they took care of the parade route, police escort and of course gave us one heck of a party! They are fantastic musicians & the Grand marshall is amazing ~ she really knows how to work it! Look no further when you need a second line band, they know their stuff and working with Jerry and Darlene to organize from afar (we are from the Northeast) was super simple and communication was incredibly professional and timely! Our guests raved about them!!

by Elizabeth A on Jazzman Entertainment

This team has wonderful musicians and showmanship plus. So much fun!

by Andrea on Jazzman Entertainment

Thank you so much! Both bands were fantastic. The parade was out of this world! All of our guests told us it was the bucket-list item they didn't know they had!

by Luke G on Jazzman Entertainment

They will take care of everything! All you have to do is show up, and be the center of attention!!! Worth every penny, don’t second guess!

They will take care of everything! All you have to do is show up, and be the center of attention!!! Worth every penny, don’t second guess!

by Briton H on Jazzman Entertainment

THANK YOU!!! The group had sooo much fun last night! One of them emailed me to say that was the most fun they’ve had at a meeting in over 20 years! Exceeded my expectations by far!

by Roz F on Jazzman Entertainment

Fantastic, friendly and helpful service, amazing event, very responsive to questions, took the hassle and stress out of organising the event from overseas, and lived up to and even exceeded expectations on the day!

by Charles B on Jazzman Entertainment

The team was great to work with throughout the process. Working from afar, it could not have been easier. Great time was had by all.

by Margaret C on Jazzman Entertainment

We are return customers and will continue to be. The band created such a fun environment and my guests were enthralled with the experience.

by Kenny S on Jazzman Entertainment

These guys are great. Had a wake for my mom and they made it a great experience for all attending. A great New Orleans tradition! They are very flexible on how to get it done too. Real pros! I highly recommend them.

by Craig v on Jazzman Entertainment

Everything was great! We had a second line parade for our son's 21st birthday party. The email communication, the last minute arrangements via text, the parade itself, everything was perfect. Thank you!

by Kelsey F on Jazzman Entertainment

Jerry and the band made our trip with their performance. I highly suggest using them as they are wonderful and made everything so easy!

by Arianna N on Jazzman Entertainment

Thanks again for an amazing show last week! (Jaywalkers at The Ritz-Carlton for opening of a General Session, escorting in the editor)

by Denise B on Jazzman Entertainment

Hi Jerry -I want to thank you guys again for a wonderful performance! Our guests kept commenting on how wonderful the music was. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to speak with you but if we do an event again in NOLA you guys are hired.

by Debbie L on Jazzman Entertainment

Just wanted to say 'thank you!' for providing awesome music at our rehearsal dinner last Friday at Arnaud's. Between the gorgeous rooms, delicious food, and your band's wonderful music, it was just as we had envisioned (and more!). A beautiful night to remember!

by Daryl H on Jazzman Entertainment

Dear Darlene and Jerry,
I want to thank you for making my birthday celebration so much fun. Your preparation, coordination, execution and performance was exceptional. My 2nd line was more than I could even wish for.

I have 2 small words; a great deal of gratitude.
Daryl Hicks

by Denise B on Jazzman Entertainment

Dear Jerry and Darlene - what a fabulous and professional performance for the second line on 10-20-18. I was told by many thankful New Englanders that this was an event of a lifetime. Guests had no idea what to expect and you certainly delivered. Thanks again, Denise

by Kelly and Bill G on Jazzman Entertainment

Dear Jerry & Darlene,

by Cindy H on Jazzman Entertainment

Darlene and Jerry,
We can’t thank you enough for making our trip to New Orleans such a memorable one. The Second Line Parade was absolutely “out of this world”! Our friends are still talking about all the fun that they had. You made everything so easy….nothing for us to do but show up! And man, what a show it was!

Crazy Ohio State Folks

by Victor B on Jazzman Entertainment

Easy to reach, easy to schedule, and extremely professional; the Jaywalkers exceeded all of my expectations and helped us make one of the most memorable experiences of our lives. This was my wife's surprise birthday and even after surprising her with friends and family, it was the parade that actually brought her to tears. HIGHLY recommend!

by Captain Dan on Jazzman Entertainment

Hey Jerry, we had a blast!!!!! It was freakin awesome for sure. Great music. On time. They take all of the guess work out of the escort, route, and setup. Just show up and have fun!!! thanks again to you and your talented band!

by Beth E on Jazzman Entertainment

Corporate Second Line Parade - 5 Stars

by Robin C on Jazzman Entertainment

This was the best money I have spent for my son's wedding. The process was so easy! I just called Jerry told him the route, how many attendees, what time to start and he took care of everything! Thanks for making this special day even more so!

by Scott C on Jazzman Entertainment

Handled everything for us. Great communication and a great time.

by Rosa on Jazzman Entertainment

This weekend, I celebrated my 60th Birthday with family and friends in New Orleans.The highlight of the four day celebration/trip was the Second Line Parade.Grand Marshall, Darlene, lead the Jaywalkers Second Line Band and our group around the French Quarter. We drank, marched and danced along, St Louis, Bourbon, St Phillip to Royal Street; finishing with the band playing" When the Saints Go Marching In" at Brennan's, our B-Day dinner destination. The Second Line Parade experience exceeded all my expectations. For half an hour, I was on a natural high; for there is no greater feeling than owning a city street with hundreds of onlookers joining in the Celebration! Thank you Jerry, Darlene and Jaywalkers for making this an unforgettable experience. You are the best.

by Cathy C on Jazzman Entertainment

We were looking for an event for an association meeting in New Orleans and came across Jazzman. What a find! Our members have traveled the world and it is always difficult to find something that is not "been there, done that." The band was wonderful, and Grand Marshal Darlene is entertainment at its best. Our members were still talking about it at the meeting the next day. Jazzman took care of everything - city permits, a fantastic route, police escort and, although they didn't take credit for it - great weather! Everything happened right on schedule and as planned. It is always a joy to work with true professionals!

by Traci M on Jazzman Entertainment

A joy to work with and incredible talent! Gumbo Trio & Flavors of New Orleans were the perfect compliments to our corporate event! Thank you!

by Mark H on Jazzman Entertainment

Thanks for making the surprise birthday party more enjoyable. You guys (The Gumbo Trio) sounded great. Definitely will recommend to anyone.

by Michael K on Jazzman Entertainment

Jerry - I just wanted you to know how wonderful it was to have you perform at the ARDA convention last week. Not only are the Jaywalkers exceptional musicians, it is obvious that you guys just LOVE to play. Thanks to you and Darlene for stepping in and making it all go so smoothly, and topping it off with your joy of music.

by Michael Schirott on Jazzman Entertainment

Jazzman came highly recommended to me and the interaction with them I can see why. Not only are they talented and passionate musicians but they are people of great character that has empathy for others. There is definite soul within the Jazzman.

by Stephanie M on Jazzman Entertainment

Oh my gosh! The most fun we've had in a while!
Darlene and the Jaywalkers were amazing! There were several second line parades the weekend we were there and without a doubt we had the best one!
Everyone in our group kept coming up and are still texting me saying how much fun they had and how awesome our parade was. We are so glad we chose you guys! Till next time!
Thanks again
The Maloney/Lynch Wedding Group

by Casey H. on Jazzman Entertainment

Darlene & the Jaywalkers were awesome! Our entire group LOVED the parade and felt so special getting to head down Bourbon Street with a police escort and their own music! Both Jerry and Darlene were terrific to work with and made everything so easy! I hope to have the opportunity to use them again on a future trip to NOLA. Thank you for everything!

by Susan W. on Jazzman Entertainment

BEST.WEDDING.EVER. Darlene and The Jaywalkers made an Awesome wedding even better! It was more than I could ask for. The most fun I have ever had in my life of 55 years. One of my guests with a bad knee said "I had the time of my life. Thank You!!!" Another said "Fun fun fun! The most fun I've ever had at a wedding!" and then "Yea...Darlene Embree is awesome!" Wish I could do it all over again! Thanks so much Darlene and The Jaywalkers for a wedding that will talked about for a long time!!!!

by Kristin J. on Jazzman Entertainment

Darlene and the Jaywalkers were amazing. My boyfriend was sooo surprised when we threw a ridiculous outfit on him and lead him up to the band and they started playing happy birthday. We went down Bourbon street dancing and had an amazing time. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our trip to New Orleans so memorable!

by Jessie T. on Jazzman Entertainment

I must echo the accolades of all the 5 star reviews given for the Jaywalkers. For many years we've seen the Jaywalkers in action and I promised myself if ever we were to get a large group together we would celebrate with a parade (there were 18 of us). From initial contact to the day of the parade, was made easy on us as the parade participants. Darlene and crew were timely, professional, and most importantly, fun! The band was spectacular and all eyes and cameras were on our group as we traveled our parade route. It was the culmination of an amazing trip to New Orleans. I would highly recommend anyone considering hiring these wonderful entertainers to take the opportunity and go with it. It was worth every single penny and then some. Laissez les bon temps rouler!

by Amanda V. on Jazzman Entertainment

The Jaywalkers were amazing! They were the hit of the night - did a great job setting the tone. In the end they had everyone dancing down the street.

by Shannon B. on Jazzman Entertainment

WOW!! I was so excited to celebrate my 40th in NOLA and to surprise everyone with the Second Line.... But even I was not prepared for how great this event was going to be! My guests were shocked and have said on numerous occasions that this was the BEST event they have every been too! Thank you Darlene and Jaywalkers!

by Tracey R. on Jazzman Entertainment

Darlene & The Jaywalkers were amazing, as always! The group had the best time - couldn't believe we "shut down Bourbon Street just for them". Darlene & Jerry are great to work with - they handle all of the logistics/ permits/ etc with professionalism and NOLA charm. I have used them before for Second Lines and will use them again!

by Dana B. on Jazzman Entertainment

Darlene and the Jaywalkers were absolutely amazing giving our group a truly unique New Orleans experience. Love the motorcycle police buzzing to close off the streets for us. We danced, laughed, and sang along the parade route that Darlene had planned. Would definitely hire them again and refer them.

by Michael T. on Jazzman Entertainment

The Jaywalkers gave us an experience to remember! Darlene and the band were very friendly. Will definitely be back for another visit soon and hope to hear the Jaywalkers marching down Bourbon Street.

by Valerie I. on Jazzman Entertainment

The Jaywalkers were an absolutely fantastic band! The attendees had so much fun. Very professional and talented group of musicians. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Thanks for making our reception such a great time!

by Rob B. on Jazzman Entertainment

Darlene and the Jaywalkers provided us with a unique NOLA experience for our conference. The second line parade went on without a hitch. They took care of all of the logistics. All we had to do was dance.

by Tristan C. on Jazzman Entertainment

Fantastic performance by The Jaywalkers. They are courteous, accommodating, and professional. The parade down Bourbon Street emphatically capped off our bachelor party weekend. What a way to experience NOLA! Seventeen thumbs up!

by Shannon L. on Jazzman Entertainment

This was the highlight of our wedding! Our guests could not stop raving about the event. So much fun and Darlene is AMAZING!

by Stephen S. on Jazzman Entertainment

FABULOUS!!!!! We cannot begin to express how fantastic our Second Line was!!!! Darlene and company were A-mazing!!! Highly recommend!!!!! Wish we could do it all over again... Much, much appreciated and many thanks!!!!!!

by Jenna R. on Jazzman Entertainment

Great experience, everyone in the wedding loved it! Good variety of songs, and a casual pace that everyone could enjoy. We had tons of onlookers and a really great time due to this amazing band! Would definitely use them again.

by Ken L. on Jazzman Entertainment

The Jaywalkers were fantastic and accommodating. They made a walk in the prosaic confines of the Convention Center into a fun-filled party. They owned the space, and they owned the crowd. They're professionals, and they know what they're doing. Thank you Jaywalkers for helping make our event a buzzworthy success!

by Kristen H. on Jazzman Entertainment

We held a work offsite in NOLA and scheduled a parade. There was some concern over how much fun it was going to be. It was FANTASTIC! Darlene put everything together for us and we didn't have to do a thing but show up. She has so much energy and got the crowd going. And the band- A+!!!! If you do anything in NOLA, have a parade!

by Marie G. on Jazzman Entertainment

Everything we dreamed it would be plus more. Everyone commented on how wonderful the musicians were. One person said, my granddaughter wants a DJ at her wedding, but she can forget that; she's having this band!

by Beth D. on Jazzman Entertainment

Terrific experience from start to finish - the group was engaging, professional, tireless and so entertaining. Would hire them again in a heartbeat. Thanks y'all.

by Chana F. on Jazzman Entertainment

The Gumbo Trio was phenomenal for our event. The music was fantastic and the musicians were so friendly and accommodating! They were so terrific, they inspired dancing at an event where dancing was not planned! I would absolutely recommend them to my friends!

by Lacey B. on Jazzman Entertainment

I hired the Gumbo Trio this past weekend to play at our corporate event. They were amazing!!! Our guest loved them and they were a joy to work with. If we have another event in New Orleans we will definitely use them again.

by Katelynn M. on Jazzman Entertainment

The Jaywalkers were phenomenal, a true NOLA classic. My husband and I, along with our wedding guests, enjoyed every second of the Jaywalkers second line parade from our reception at Pat O's, down the stairs and down the street to Café Du Monde. Even passersby in NOLA got to join in on the parade action. Thank you, Jaywalkers, for ending the best night of our life with fantastic music and pageantry. We loved it!

by Cathy P. on Jazzman Entertainment

We had a blast and everyone had such a great time! I can't say enough nice things about Darlene and the Jaywalkers! These guys and Darlene were FABULOUS! I want to come back to NOLA and do it all over again! Thank you so much Darlene and the Jaywalkers!!!

by Elise H. on Jazzman Entertainment

I recently hired the Gumbo Trio for the second time and once again, they were amazing!! The booking process was smooth, they arrived on time, and the music was excellent. Highly recommend and hope to use them again!!

by Gayle S. on Jazzman Entertainment

From the beginning Jerry & Darlene of the Jaywalkers were a delight to work with. They took care of all the details for our second line...permits, police escorts, and amazing music! Our guests (corporate leaders) were awed and thrilled by the experience...they are still talking about it! Darlene is a fireball...perfect person to lead the parade! The Jaywalkers are an amazing band and our guests and all the folks along the route enjoyed their fabulous music! If you have the opportunity to do this do not hesitate! It will be one of the highlights of your life!!! Thank you Jaywalkers!

by Linda H. on Jazzman Entertainment

Great time had by all. Very happy!

by Janette S. on Jazzman Entertainment

Darlene and crew were so accommodating and we had SO much fun. As parents of the groom, we were thrilled with what that parade added to the wedding experience. A bunch of us old fogies are now talking about renewing our vows and doing the Second Line. Bucket list and didn't even know it!

by Gail C. on Jazzman Entertainment

Never experienced anything like this. Everyone had a lot of fun. It didn't rain thank goodness. A unique way to introduce the newly married to the public. Thank you so much. Wishing you a happy holiday season.

by Mary D. on Jazzman Entertainment

The Gumbo Trio was excellent. Arrived on time and played from beginning to end. The only complaint I heard was the breaks were too long. Guess they just wanted them to play nonstop! Would definitely hire them again.

by Eric D. on Jazzman Entertainment

Awesome, awesome, awesome!

They took care of everything including the licenses and getting the police lined up. They customized our route down Bourbon Street and made it a really incredible experience. Incredible job! I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.

by Carter S. on Jazzman Entertainment

Hands down our favorite part of the wedding, although the whole wedding party was super sweaty from the parade! So much fun!

by Seth T. on Jazzman Entertainment

Parading down the middle of Bourbon Street with hundreds of tourists cheering and photographing you is truly an awesome experience. I cannot count how many of our wedding guests thanked us for helping them check off an item from their bucket list. They really should have thanked the Jaywalkers, because not only are they great musicians, but they also handled all of the permits, police escorts, logistics, etc. Darlene was great to work with, very responsive and professional. Booking a second line with the Jaywalkers will be an experience that you and your guests will never forget.

by John M. on Jazzman Entertainment

A Second Line with the Jaywalkers is, quite simply, an amazing experience. Darlene led the Line with such enthusiastic energy, and the musicians were first-rate. It was such a good show that tourists on both sides of the street just stopped, watched and photographed us. Jerry made the booking and logistics effortless -- taking care of the parade permit, police escorts, etc. Almost one week later, and all of our party guests are still raving about the Second Line with the Jaywalkers!

by B. N. on Jazzman Entertainment

Everyone should throw a parade for themselves once in their life, and you should probably hire Jerry, Darlene, George, and the rest of the JayWalkers to provide the music. You may also want to wear Hawaiian shirts and a pug mask. One of the best ways to walk around New Orleans. Thanks guys!

by Jacqueline B. on Jazzman Entertainment

Highlight of my trip! Loved the band!

by Rebecca F. on Jazzman Entertainment

Don't hesitate! Don't think twice! DO this! Having Darlene and the finest second line musicians in New Orleans accompany us thru the streets of the French Quarter was unforgettable and the most fun ever! From the first contact, Darlene and Jerry were professional and so easy to work with. They promised and they delivered - with unmatched style! Our guests were blown away with the entire second line experience and it was truly the highlight of our Vow Renewal in NOLA. It was magical! Thank you JayWalkers, Thank you Darlene! We will always remember what you added to our day.

by Amy M. on Jazzman Entertainment

We used the Jaywalkers for our wedding in New Orleans a few weeks ago. The band was amazing! We did a second line from our ceremony site to our reception and everyone had a blast! The music was fun, loud and everyone was dancing in the street! It was the highlight of our wedding! Thank you so much for making it such a memorable experience!!

by Nick F. on Jazzman Entertainment

Great time. Everyone was easy to talk to and professional. They did a professional job and really got Bourbon Street going on our parade.

by Natalie H. on Jazzman Entertainment

The band was WONDERFUL!! The music was just what we were looking for! The only issue is that it was a little difficult to hear their beautiful music. It would be great if the band had speakers. Thanks again - you helped make our wedding a perfect day!
