Several great gigmaster bands that claim to be cajun and zydeco may give that impression or sound, but we are the REAL DEAL as we are from New Orleans, and Big Mamou Louisiana. Lester Verrette member is nephew of Legendary FATHER of cajun music, Dewey Balfa, he's performed on many of his authentic cajun records! Jack Holcomb is great nephew of legendary Roscoe Holcpmb who was considered father of appalacian and bluegrass music, long before Bill Monroe. We are the REAL DEAL!

We are great for Indoor and outdoor Concerts, weddings, Low Country Boils, Pig Roasts, Bar b ques, Oyster Roasts, Clam Bakes, Crawfish Boils, club events, KARAOKE, Luaus, and any kind of cookouts.

We can play with the sound power of a full Live band for your Festival, Club Date or Private party for less cost then
hiring a full band.

We also can simply play Accoustically for that genuine Fais-Do-Do sound and bring the Rubboard, Triangle and other percussion instruments for your guests to play along.

Musician friends had recommended Nawlin's Po' Boy'z and they certainly didn't disappoint. Excellent interaction with the crowd, huge range of music and they were just all 'round great guys. People kept asking, 'Where did you find these guys?' They played into the wee hours and would only stop when 'Tampa's Finest' put in the final request of the night (in a nice way, of course). This was a Zydeco themed party however, I would have no problem bringing them back for a host of other themes... Thanks! Aeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

I had great communication with Nawlins Po Boys up to the date of my grandmother's 90th birthday party. This trio was very talented and accomodating to the last minute song requests of our party. The town of Madison had a great time. I wholeheartedly recommend these guys.
