Review by Jessica D.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 14, 2013From New Orleans, LA

We couldn't have been happier with our choice of the Jimmy Maxwell Orchestra. We were looking for a big band sound for our reception in the Blue Room of the Roosevelt Hotel and going for the classy feel of the cocktail era supper club. They did not disappoint. Their choice of songs was spot on, and we were really impressed with their range - everything from old school swing to crooners to new music. They really rocked it all. Jimmy and his son Robert were very accomodating, meeting us beforehand and asking for our preferences. They really listened to what we requested but obviously had lots of experience so I felt comfortable leaving it in their hands.
