From the very beginning their goal was to see to it that the band and it’s listeners had a smoking hot time
— Steve Steinburg Offbeat Magazine

The Smoking Time Jazz Club are a New Orleans based traditional jazz band, reviving and refreshing the music of the 1920s and 30s for todays listeners, swing dancers and jazz fans.

When we play the greats like Louis, Duke, Jelly, Bessie or Billie it's because they really were geniuses and the contributions and insights they made to jazz are relevant right now. We aim to bring that music and those great musical ideas into the future. It has been said that music is a great big tree with very old roots. A tree that is indeed still living and growing and if you look at the top it's still sprouting leaves and it's still comin' out waving in the breeze.


WE enjoy a weekly residency at
The Maison at 508 Frenchman St. every Saturday night 7-10 pm and at
The Spotted Cat Music Club  at 623 Frenchmen St. every Tuesday night at 10 pm- 2 am
