Skip & his group, The Spirit of New Orleans, play a smattering of the great rhythm and blues hits of the ’50s and ’60s, as well as some great pop & rock organ classics of the ’60s and ’70’s. Add to that a bonifide New Orleans piano boogie-woogie and the party follows!
Over the last 20 years, frontman Skip Jones has enjoyed working with such bands as: The Coasters, The Drifters, The Platters, Joe Houston & Bo Diddley.
