Louisiana Spice was awesome at our wedding reception! The communication up to the event was scarce and I was definitely not convinced they were actually going to show up, but they were there on time and performed better than I expected! They even played extra long because everyone was loving them!
I am absolutely blow away by how AMAZING Louisiana Spice is! Thomas was so easy to work with, and even gave me suggestions along the way, which were all wonderful. Most of my family is from out of town, so they loved to experience the Second Line and big horn band! I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better!
If I could give a million stars for this band, I would. Thomas and his crew delivered the most kick ass performance at my wedding reception this past weekend. It's a 10 piece band complete with a horns section that will knock your socks off. If you are looking for the perfect mix of motown oldies and funk to start, with newer music towards the later end of the party, this band is for you. They will even learn specific songs that mean something special to you or your groom. ("Rich Girl" by Hall & Oates for me, and "Jungle Love" by The Time for the husband). They actually play every song known to man, you just gotta ask. On their scheduled breaks, you can even provide your own playlist to keep the vibe going. Overall, every guest at our reception kept saying how AMAZING the band was, which in our opinion makes the party. Their price was not too bad either - average for a band of that size and length of the party. Knowing New Orleanians like to party and dance their booties off, Louisiana Spice delivered on every level. Highly recommend this amazing group of true musicians. Call the day you get engaged because they book up fast!!
We had a wonderful experience working with Louisiana Spice Band. The band played for our 03/19/2016 wedding at Gallier Hall and we had such a wonderful time! A band's performance is evident by the look and mood of the dance floor and our dance floor was packed! Thomas was a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding day-- I am very detail oriented, he was very patient and addressed all of my questions/concerns. Thomas assured me of the band's abilities and experience....and he proved his word at our reception because everything was perfect!

They were awesome, they got everyone dancing early and didn't stop until the wedding ended. Everything they played sounded great and they had no problem interacting with the guest and getting everyone involved.
MORE COMPLIMENTS ON THE BAND THAN ON THE BRIDE AND GROOM!Reviewed on 2/10/2015 Ashley E
I jokingly say that we received more compliments on the band than my husband and I did, but it was most likely pretty close. It's been 4 months and we still have guests asking how we found Louisiana Spice, and saying that they just didn't want to leave the dance floor at the end of the night. The set list was fantastic, playing a mix of both current and classic songs. We weren't too picky on songs that could/could not be played, but the band was more than willing to meet any requests.We had so much fun and could not have asked for a better band to play at our reception. If you are looking for a great time with some great music, Louisiana Spice is the way to go.
BEST BAND EVER!!!!Reviewed on 7/09/2014 Jessica C
Wow! I cannot say enough great things about this band! From the first conversation I had with Thomas to the last note they played, Louisiana Spice can only be described as "perfection!" My wedding guests are still talking about how much fun they had! They really played an instrumental role in making my wedding truly the most fun night of my life! I wouldn't change a thing! Louisiana Spice is PERFECTION!
Great at the receptionReviewed on 5/02/2014 Angela C
Louisiana Spice was very entertaining at the reception. We received many compliments from our guests. They were unresponsive to my planner leading up to the wedding and didn't ask me for a song list until the week of the wedding. They also didn't play some of the songs I selected and also played some songs that I did not pick. I know no one else knew but it was disappointing to me.
What a party!!Reviewed on 3/16/2014 Christine F
Louisiana Spice Band was just spectacular. I could not have asked for anything better. They are fun and enthusiastic and get you and your guests to dance the night away. They play a wide range of songs from all genres. I have to say I've seen them play several times and each time was just as much enthusiasm. I can't imagine having anyone else play at my wedding. I love that they have the horn section and the variety of the 2 females singers and one male singer. They get into the crowd to make sure everyone is having a great time. Anyone getting married or needing a band for a party should definitely book Louisiana Spice and.... Book the extra time. You will want it!!
The BEST BAND ever!Reviewed on 11/03/2013 Courtney C
Thomas and the band, YOU ROCK LA SPICE! The band did an exceptional job at my daughter's, Courtney, wedding at Chateau. You went over and beyond, from locating karaoke version of "After the loving", providing hats for "Billy Jean" song to playing entire wedding with only ONE break. In courtney's words, "The band was amazing and they totally made the night what it was. This band was the BEST I have seen and heard at a wedding. Thomas thanks for making me feel special". Chad, your biggest fan thanks you from the bottom of my heart. I am sure it was a diffulct decision to make with your uncle's wedding the same night. Words cannot express how extremely happy you made me when I saw you on stage and heard you sing. The night surely would not have been the same without you. To the horn section, which was my husband's only request, you are phenomenal. We really appreciated you leading us on dance floor for 2nd line dance. And especially for RICK pulling out the brass tuba. It was a hit! The bride's request for a band was a female vocalist but we were forunate to get two. Chelle and Betty thanks for your beautiful voices and leading our guests in line dances. Thomas, what can I say! You made me feel like my daughter and I were very special and her wedding was priority from our first conversation to the last. Thomas you nailed it! You called an incredible set and kept us and our guests dancing all night. I was certainly stress free when I thought of my guests being entertained by such talented musicians and singers. It certainly shows that each and every one of you love what you do by the performance you gave that night. I thank you all for giving me and my family , especially Courtney and Corey, a life time of memories. We look forward to enjoying you again at Rock n Bowl in December and at my cousin's wedding on Feb. 1, 2014. Sincerely, Maryanne
Swingin Good Time!!Reviewed on 11/03/2013 Danielle K
I just have to say this band rocks!! I love big band and swing music so the second I saw their zoot suits I just had to book them. My husband and I went to see them at Rock N Bowl after I booked them but before the wedding. They were awesome! We had a blast that night and at our reception too! I requested the Chicken Dance for my new husband because he gets such a kick out of it, and even though they hadn't played it in something like 12 years, they did a really great job. All of my guests keep telling me how much fun the band was and want to know where I found them. I tell them, "I saw them on The Knot and booked them before I even asked him to marry me, I had to have them. I figured we'd have a heck of a party even if he said no!" Thomas was a great contact for the band and is so accommodating. Even the sound guy was a sweetheart! Do not miss out on this band, you will have the time of your life and your guests will be raving about them for months afterward!
Wow!Reviewed on 10/23/2013 Kristen D
I don't even know where to start! Thomas maintained consistent contact throughout the entire process not only answering any questions I had but checking on me to see how things were going. To me, that is ABOVE AND BEYOND service!! At the wedding, there was never a dull moment. They kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night! One of the most popular comments were heard after the fact was how incredible the band was. EVERYONE wanted to know who they were! They were fun and entertaining, but also RIDICULOUSLY talented. I can only hope I can use them for another event one day! They certainly MADE our wedding night! You will not regret booking this band, I can promise you that. Thanks so much! --Boots
SO MUCH FUN!Reviewed on 7/31/2013
The number of musicians and the quality of music you get when you book LA Spice is INCREDIBLE. These are true musicians. Their song list is impressive and quite versatile. My husband and I wanted more old school music than Top 40 hits at our wedding, and we were so happy with the way things turned out. LA Spice kept the party going until the last second of our reception and so many of our guests were complimenting how great they were. They even busted out a limbo stick toward the end of the night and everyone loved it!
Unbelieveable.... they made my wedding!Reviewed on 11/27/2012 Misty G
hese guys were AMAZING! We wanted a band that could play a wide range of songs including some of the more current popular dance songs but also had a horn section and could do the more traditional Louisiana stuff. This band absolutely made our reception. They were in complete control of our guests and had everyone on the dance floor all night long. Everyone from my grandparents to my college age cousins and guests loved the music. They were so professional to work with, very quick to respond to emails and very accommodating in song selection. They wear really cool suits and have a nice set up with lights and banners. They really just put on a nice show. On top of that, they sound awesome and never miss a note. My husband’s family is full of professional musicians and even they were super impressed. You absolutely can’t go wrong with these guys.
LA Spice was greatReviewed on 8/28/2012 Samantha F
LA Spice was an awesome band to work with. Thomas was incredibly responsive and patient with me because I had many questions. He talked me through much of the process and gave me lots of advice based on his experience. All of my guests commented on how much fun the band was to dance to at the wedding.
Very fun band!Reviewed on 6/12/2012 Kristin H
Our guests raved about this band at our reception and we are still hearing how much our guests loved Louisiana Spice band! They are very easy to work with and are very nice. Our guests were dancing the whole night -- they really know how to get the crowd involved!!
Louisiana Spice was amazingly awesome!!!Reviewed on 3/22/2012 Jacqueline S
We are still getting comments about how PERFECT the band was for my daughter's wedding last weekend in New Orleans. All of the out-of-town guests are still asking me where I found the band! I laughed and told all of them...New Orleans of course! Umm...we do have the best musicians in the world! My brother and sister-in law from Los Angeles followed the band outside on their break just to talk to them and tell them how amazing they were! :) Louisiana Spice was better than we could have ever imagined. They sound so much better in person than they do on their website videos. They played so many different types of music and their sound and lighting is awesome. There is nothing worse than a band that is too loud or has obnoxious lighting that can ruin the ambiance of the beautiful wedding design and venue. This was not the case with Louisiana Spice as they have their own sound expert. The band is so easy to work with and no demanding riders. The band is a 12-person ensemble and the horns are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! We had a 45-minute cocktail session in the garden before the reception & 3 of the band members played instrumentals during this time. I'm so pleased with their performance and so happy we hired them! Yea! Do yourself a favor and contact them now before your date is booked. You won't be disappointed. They were perfect! :)
Engaging, fun and reasonable!Reviewed on 11/03/2011 Janine M
Louisiana Spice had us and all of our guests dancing the whole time. We received several compliments and they learned our dance songs (that weren’t on their lists). Very good value.
Fun Fun FunReviewed on 1/27/2011 Margee D
Great music choices for everyone. I didn't get to dance so much, but seeing pictures of people dancing, you can't deny they were having a great time.
So much fun!Reviewed on 10/14/2010 Alice M
These guys were amazing! People were dancing all night and didn't want the party to end.
