About the Dukes of Dixieland

Back in 1974, producer John Shoup re-formed the Dukes of Dixieland, and opened their jazz club atop the Monteleone Hotel in the French Quarter, calling it "DUKES' PLACE” with the blessing of its previous owner, Louis Prima. Playing four sets a night, often stretching till dawn, when three bucks would take care of the two drink minimum, DUKES’ PLACE also became the home base for a number of jazz sessions produced by Shoup for PBS, including the early Marsalis family, Stephane Grappelli, Les McCann and Toots Thielemans.

In addition to their nightly gig on the STEAMBOAT NATCHEZ in New Orleans, the Dukes perform over 30 concerts a year with orchestras and festivals in the USA and abroad. Their concert programs include "Mardi Gras"; "Blues on the Bayou"; "Symphonic Jazz"; "Voodoo Revue"; "Celebrating Satchmo"; "New Orleans Jazz Legends" and "Back to Bourbon Street".

Despite the Dukes' busy schedule, they have found time to record 29 albums and produce 3 PBS television shows ("New Orleans Pops"; "Salute to Jelly Roll Morton" and "Celebrating Satchmo"). Unlike their dixieland name, they play New Orleans music, from Dr. John and Fats Domino, to Huey Smith and Louis Prima, not to mention many of their own original tunes. With a repertoire of roughly 400 tunes, there is room for all of the above and still be the pre-eminent New Orleans band as well as New Orleans Ambassadors.
