About
We're here to offer a refreshing sets of swinging Jazz, Blues, Country, New Orleans Funk and Roots Rock. We're always happy to add a few of your favorites to the list. Most of the clips that I've posted are of my original music. The covers we play are the artists and songs that inspire me - Dr. John, The Meters, Bob Dylan, Fats Domino, Sam Cooke, Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, Muddy Waters, Frank Sinatra, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, The Band and lots of local New Orleans artists. Ted Hefko's New Orleans Band consists of myself on Vocals, Sax & Clarinet and Acoustic Guitar along with electric guitar, bass, keyboard and drums with the addition of horns for larger events.

Ted Hefko and The Thousandaires have three albums of originals, featuring our unique blend of New Orleans Jazz and Roots Rock. Our latest album, "Gas Station" has been played on blues radio, the world over. We perform regularly and travel quite frequently, so don't hesitate to contact us outside the New Orleans Area. We've brought our unique sound to Saint Francisville, LA, Fairhope, AL, Austin, Tx, Zachary, LA. Natchez, MS. Lubbick, TX. Tulsa, OK, Charleston, SC, Nashville, TN and Thomas WV to name few!

Ted Hefko and his band were absolutely amazing. Everyone kept asking where did you find them. They preformed an obscure French song for our first dance. More than one person is considering them for their wedding! Thank you Ted so much!

Without a doubt, one of the best parts of our wedding reception last August was having Ted and his band come up to from Brooklyn. We stumbled upon his listing here and couldn't have been more pleased with the timeliness, accommodation, and professionalism he and his crew showed throughout the event. The band played longer than our agreed upon time, which was great! When asked why, the answer was; "When we're playing to people who appreciate the music, we get into it too!". It is obvious Ted loves his genre and the craft of making music. Were we to do it again, we wouldn't change a thing!

Ted is very professional with a wonderful voice. He and his four piece band were a great addition to our New Orleans themed cocktail hour. Ted was always available to us prior to the event and the entire band was there early on the day of our wedding. We gave Ted a rough idea of the music we wanted to hear and he put together a terrific set.

As a professional composer and musician it was important to me for our wedding music to be something special. The idea of a DJ or bad pop covers was out of the question. I'm admittedly a bit of a snob when it comes to music - it's my job. The Ted Hefko band was just what we were looking for: fun, energetic, laid-back, and danceable. These are real musicians that live and breathe music and - it shows. Many guests gave us their unsolicited opinions of the music: "the best music at any wedding, and one of the best live bands they'd seen." If you're like me and can't stomach the idea of what normally passes for acceptable Wedding music give Ted a call.

Ted and his band were great from the first listen, through the planning stages and the actual wedding performance. Everyone loved them and could not have had a better time at our ceremony and cocktail hour. They made our ceremony unique and everyone noticed it. They are awesome musicians that sound great no matter what style of music they are playing. My wife and I want to hire them for all our future parties! Chris and Rhoda Brooklyn, NY

We cannot say enough good things about Ted's band. Throughout the wedding planning process, Ted was very accomodating; he quickly responded to all correspondence and was happy to learn any special requests. Ted consistently got everyone out on the dance floor with an ecclectic mix of styles. There was a great mix of slow and fast dance songs, and he included every song we had asked for. We cannot recommend the Ted Hefko Band highly enough--they were crucial in carrying off a reception that was tailored to our taste and yet enjoyed by all of our guests. We are still getting compliments on the band two weeks later!
