About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The Gumbo Gumbas are "A delicious medley of authentic New Orleans Spaghetti Jazz with a side of Creole. We play the music that will make you happy and want to jump for joy. We get our influences from the city that started it all in American music, New Orleans and blend the elements of jazz, zydeco, R&B, country and rock into a big old fashioned southern stew. Our mission is to spread the vibe of NOLA up to the north. There are so many people who have not visited this great music city and we want to expose as many people as we can to the magic that is New Orleans." The Gumbo Gumbas play original compositions and traditional music from the early 1900's. Our influences are Louis Armstrong, Louie Prima, the great swing bands of the 30's & 40's. Along with playing the classic songs of that time period, we offer a history lesson to our audience by talking in-between numbers and telling stories pertaining to the music and the history of New Orleans when the songs were first composed. The music is cross generational, fun to dance to and great to listen to. It's fabulous for concerts, night clubs, corporate events, private parties, educational institutions and vineyards. Now offering virtual concerts and parties via Zoom!

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 11, 2021From Wenonah, NJ

Joe was amazing! His music and the way he interacted with guests brought the party to a whole other level. We couldn't have been happier and hope to book him again in the future!

Gumbo Gumbas:

Thanks for the kind words Mark! I hope to see you and Susan at one of our Gumbo Gumbas full band live shows some time. We'll be at McLoones Supper Club this year for Mardi Gras. Laissez les bons temps rouler! Joe

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 24, 2020From Westfield, NJ

Great entertainment option in the age of COVID. My Wife loves New Orleans jazz. Of course going to a club or to NOLA was out of the question, but I happened on this web site and found the perfect solution for a truly memorable virtual event with Joe Grillo / Gumbo Gumbas. We invited all our extended family members to join the Zoom call and it was a blast for all. Very professional quality as Joe wires his mixing board directly into the computer and made sure mics were muted at appropriate times. Joe's personal touches were awesome. Plus we have a recording for all to share. Thank you Joe for a truly special performance.

Gumbo Gumbas:

Thanks for the kind words Bill. I hope to see you and Claire at one of my gigs when things get back to normal.
