"Vocalist and trumpeter James Williams is very much a Louis Armstrong sound-alike, but he is resolutely his own man."
-- Stephen Duffy, The Jazz House, BBC Radio Scotland

New LIVE album

My band The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys just released a LIVE DOUBLE ALBUM from two special nights of performance in 2015 and 2016 at De Melkbus in Dordrecht, Netherlands. You can order the album here. In honor of recent events, we've titled the album "SLIGHTLY CONCUSSED" and we know you will enjoy all 20 tracks as if we were at a live concert together.
