WANDA ROUZAN – Critical acclaim says that Ms. Rouzan is not just a “Taste of New Orleans”, but, a “Whole Meal”. Wanda, the Sweetheart of New Orleans and one of the Crescent City’s premier musical ambassadors, leads her own band, “A Taste of New Orleans” performing all over the world. She can, also, be seen regularly with Norbert Susemihl’s New Orleans All-Stars featuring Louis Ford and Jason Marsalis. Singer, actress, choreographer, grand marshal and educator, Wanda is the quintessential, Big Easy performing artist. Her show business career spans nearly fifty years. She appears regularly at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, French Quarter Festival, Tulane University’s Commencement, and as a regular in the upcoming season of HBO’s “Treme”. Wanda has three recordings with the fourth, Mama Roux, soon to be released in 2011. Visit her on facebook or on her website, www.wandarouzan.com. She fuses jazz and blues, funk and soul, R&B, second line, spiritual and show into a “Jump on your feet and sing along” music revival. Wanda & A Taste of New Orleans will keep you moving and fill your heart and spirit. Ms. Rouzan has a Master’s Degree and teaches Theatre Arts at Audubon Charter School. She is forever grateful giving thanks to her God, loving family and fantastic fans while she continues to promote the culture, music and tradition of her beloved New Orleans. M’.M’.Good!
