  • Randi was just the sweetest and easiest to work with leading up to our wedding!! We had a destination wedding in Nola coming from FL and my husband and I are BIG music snobs lol! We really felt that a good band/music can make or break your wedding and it meant so much to us to hire a good band. They were 1,000% everything we had hoped for and more 🤗🤗!! We had an acoustic guitarist play during the ceremony and cocktail hour - just so beautiful 😍. We were supposed to have a marching band for a second line parade but unfortunately due to COVID all parades were canceled for the weekend. Regardless, Randi refunded is for that portion and played extra time at the reception!! They had the most amazing energy and were all truly amazing artists in their craft :) they played all of our requests as well as their own unique style , signature Nola Jazz/funk and party favorites- EVERYONE danced!! Such a blast and most unforgettable day! Thank you Nola Dukes for making our wedding everything... Read more

  • Through the recomendation from a friend, we went to listen to Nola Dukes Band at a local venue. After listening to them and talking to Randi we knew they would be a great band for our wedding. We went to hear them play one more time and then booked them for our May 2020 wedding. Randi was easy to talk to, made suggestions for what we needed, and was responsive to all my questions. Then Covid and stay at home orders! So our May wedding did not happen. After talking to all of our vendors we decided to re schedule for July 2020. (Our wedding was smaller so we were able to proceed.) Covid caused some extra stress and challenges (and lots of tears too) in re scheduling our wedding, but Randi was there every step of the way. She was flexible and we made the needed modifications in order to have our wedding in July. Our friends and family were so excited to celebrate with us and we all had a fabulous evening. It was an evening we all needed and the band provided the environment for us to cele... Read more

  • The Nola Dukes Band is an amazing band to work with! Randi is the sweetest and is very helpful, reliable and dependable! I hired their 8 piece band to play for my wedding and because of COVID we went from that, to a 6 piece, and then had to hire a DJ at the last minute because of restrictions. Randi helped us through the WHOLE thing, remaining positive and hopeful and got in touch with our reception contact to figure everything out. If you are looking for band who you can trust and rely on at a great price, while also enjoying great music, choose them! (: I would highly recommend!

  • Look no further for a reception band because Nola Dukes is it! Growing up in New Orleans, you see the same few bands play at every wedding with the same songs. When it came time for our own band research, we knew we wanted a band that was different and fun. My husband found Nola Dukes online. Since we live out of state, we listened to their demo CD and sent my sister to their showcase at a bar - from there, we were sold! We booked them without ever hearing them in person, which was a little scary, but I knew we were in good hands. We did an 8 piece band at our reception, which was priced very reasonably and in line with other bands we checked out. Randi is absolutely amazing to work with as she is professional and prompt in her responses. Also, when it came time to talking through the reception, she offered solid advice and professional opinions on order of events and songs. For selecting songs, there were a couple "must play" songs, lots of "absolutely do not play" songs; but, ot... Read more

  • I cannot say enough good things about the Nola Dukes! From the planning process to the day of my wedding, we felt completely taken care of! They answered all of our questions and made our ceremony and reception perfect! I loved every minute! I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting a band for their reception! I’m already wanting to plan a party just so I can book them again!

  • Randi and her team were amazing. She is so professional and personable and friendly and fun!!! They had the dance floor full the whole night. People who claim to not dance even danced!!! Do yourself a favor and hire them, you won't regret it.

  • We were lucky enough to hear the NOLA Dukes at a friend's wedding a while before ours. We had an amazing time, and I was convinced we needed the NOLA Dukes for our wedding. Randi was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. We asked the band to do a special Mother's Day tribute with us, and they made it happen! They also learned our first dance song so that we could dance to live music. We found the NOLA Dukes to be the best deal financially- you can customize the size, which helped us because of some noise restrictions at our venue- but we also found out it helped our budget! Guests loved the band and about 20 people asked who they were. We wanted a band that would keep the dance floor packed all night long- and we got it!

  • Working with Nola Dukes was the best and easiest decision for our wedding. From start to finish they were incredibly responsive, well organized, and fun. They listened to and incorporated all of the ideas we had while planning while offering insightful advice from their years of experience. The music at our reception was everything we dreamed of; our family still can't believe they were on the dance floor the whole night. Aside from the unbelievably fun music, Nola Dukes made us feel so special from the personalized touches they worked into their performance. This band is so fun!!

  • Randi and NOLA Dukes surpassed our expectations in every way. Honestly, if you want a band for your wedding in New Orleans, this is it. I talked with Randi (lead singer and band manager) for almost 9 months leading up to our day. We planned from afar and had a ton of moving parts -- from a String trio, to a Second Line parade, and then finally a 7-piece horn band. Randi and Co. put it all together and even learned some custom tunes for us. This amounted to what would be an outrageous price in the Northeast, where we're from. I can't tell you how great Randi is to work with. Slacker musician? Hell no. On point business person? Hell yes. And after the great planning and communication, her and the band showed up with some chops, rocked the house, and set the mood for the party of the year that night. I can go on and on, but if you're considering hiring a band for your NOLA wedding, contact NOLA Dukes -- they are what you've been looking for.

    Hey Brad! Thanks so much for your nice words. You guys were awesome to work with and we had a great time that night! It was especially great to play for a fellow musician. We wish you all the best and hope our paths cross again! Randi & NDB :)
