We’re excited to announce the return of virtual Music in the Garden concerts for the remainder of the season! Tune in to our website, Facebook page or YouTube channel for live music, behind-the-scenes tours of the Garden and more. Thank you to our sponsor, EMC Insurance Companies, for their support of these virtual events. We hope to resume a full series of in-person concerts in 2021.
From their debut in The Basement of The Des Moines Social Club in 2015, the NOLA Jazz Band has grown into a monthly New Orleans Jazz Party among other shows. With Abbie Sawyer on vocals, the band brings a diverse and full musical background — individual members have shared the stage with jazz greats and have been inducted into the Iowa Jazz Hall of Fame. All band members have a common love for the sound and feel of both traditional and current New Orleans based music — real, gutsy, raw, heartfelt, and entertaining.
