Kevin Gullage & His Blues Groovers
Twenty-one-year-old NOCCA alum Kevin Gullage takes the stage with the poise of a seasoned performer. His ability to perform across multiple styles and genres has made him one of New Orleans’ most in-demand musicians. Kevin has performed with the likes of Grammy-winning artist Patrice Rushen and renowned saxophonist Bobby Watson. He recently released his debut CD entitled Blues For The City.
Doreen’s Jazz New Orleans
NOCCA alum Doreen Ketchens leads the outstanding Doreen’s Jazz New Orleans. This group travels the world, giving exceptional presentations that tingle the senses with the many flavors of Traditional Jazz. In addition to standard concerts, the band is loved for its unique religious services, weddings, and funerals. Many of its tours include in-school workshops for students that range in age from pre-school to college. Doreen’s Jazz not only entertains but also educates through music, telling the story of New Orleans’ rich, historic, and diverse culture.
