On my first trip to NOLA with my now husband, we were touring the French Quarter and just as he was telling me about the bands that play openly in the street we came across Big Fun jamming on Royal St. We ended up finding them online and decided to use them for our ceremony,... Read More second line, and our reception. They were so great to work with. They learned a song especially for us and made the party everything we wanted and ten times more. I highly recommend this band to anyone not wanting a normal run of the mill DJ, but a genuinely fun New Orleans party. Great choice for sure!!

So much fun!

We also hired a Big Fun horn player for our wedding ceremony and he went above and beyond his portion of the contract by entertaining our guests as they waited for a late bus to bring the last of the guests to the ceremony site.
