Southern Sounds started arranging an annual jazz holiday to New Orleans in 1992, when the inaugural jazz tour in association with the Ken Colyer Trust, formed in honour of the famous jazz trumpeter of the 1950’s, was organised. 2016 will mark our 25th consecutive tour to the ‘Big Easy’.

We now offer the only escorted traditional jazz specific holiday to the ‘home of jazz’, visiting in April each year for the French Quarter Festival. The festival is a free open air event with an eclectic mix of music, principally jazz but also showcasing gospel, blues, Cajun and zydeco.

Our high profile amongst the jazz fraternity in New Orleans enables us to organise jazz events that are unique including jam sessions with local  musicians and private parties at historic jazz venues.

Other USA destinations include Nashville, Memphis, Lafayette and the Mississippi Delta, which for many around the world, first and foremost means music.

In San Diego the Jazz Festival that is held each year over the Thanksgiving weekend is, to many discerning jazz fans, the ‘Crown Jewel of Jazz Festivals’.

So do call us and we’ll chat through what we have been doing for almost a quarter of a century and help you achieve your dream jazz holiday in the Deep South.

‘Laissez les bon temps roulez’ (Let the good times roll).
