About
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!

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.

Thank you for the kind words. It was a really fabulous event. My favorite part was playing with Sweet Megg and the Wayfarers.That band was awesome. BTW, can you email me the contact info for the vendor who gave me all that shrimp?I wanted to thank her again and teller what a big hit it was for the Trenton Soup Kitchen to get that generous gift. We look forward to collaberating with you on future events. You were awesome to work with. Laissez les bons temps rouler! Joe
