If it's a party you want, The Barrelhouse Jive Cats are ready to deliver!  We are a pool of working pro jazz musicians playing  trad jazz (New Orleans, dixieland, hot jazz,) a century-old dance music that still never fails to get feet moving and faces smiling.  We are able to fit most any budget as a small duo all the way up to a seven-piece band.  Check out our live video demo above and contact James to reserve your date with the Barrelhouse Jive Cats!

"Hi James,

We just got back from our honeymoon...everyone was very happy! Quite a few folks approached me asking where I found you guys, and commented that you were great! I've gone ahead and filled out the Gigmasters review with five stars for everything.
Thanks again for the great performance. I hope I have a chance to book the band again."
