Jack Daniel's Stage
With soulful grooves and impeccable musicianship, Soul Project NOLA brings the spirit of New Orleans everywhere they go. Mixing elements of jazz, soul, blues, funk and gospel, the band reliably draws crowds to their high energy shows. Mominated for for Offbeat Magazine’s Best of the Beat Awards for Best R&B/Funk Album, Soul Projects NOLA’s 2013 release “Music For Movers & Shakers” places the band in the upper stratosphere of the New Orleans music scene alongside fellow nominees Trombone Shorty and Dumpstaphunk.
Inspired by the music of Walter “Wolfman” Washington & The Roadmasters, the Meters, the Neville Brothers and Galactic, Jon Cristian Duque (guitar/lead vocals), Will Repholz (bass), Colin Davis (drums), Jeremy Habegger (organ/keys), Phil Morin (Sax) and David Ludman (sax) have spent more than a decade establishing themselves in New Orleans’ competitive music scene with regular gigs on world-renowned Frenchmen St, big stage festival appearances (French Quarter Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Jazz In the Park at Armstrong Park…), and regular tours of the southern, eastern and central United States.
