“It’s hard planning a wedding… It’s even harder when it’s in a different city over a 1,000 miles away during their busiest time of year. (NYC to NOLA + Mardi Gras season) What makes it easier is dealing with people who are communicative, forthright, honest and passionate. And Frenchmen Street Productions (FSP) is exactly that.
We needed a brass band for a traditional New Orleans second line parade at our welcome party, scheduled a few days before our wedding. Amanda from FSP took care of everything. Not only did she book us Kinfolk Brass Band, she got us a grand marshall, three Mardi Gras Indians AND ON TOP OF THAT, she took the time to go to the local precinct to get the parade permit and schedule the police motorcycle escort too!
She also saved our butts because she realized that on our wedding day there were a few massive parades going through NOLA and our wedding guests (145 people) would have no way to get from their hotels in the French Quarter & Marigny to the Lower Garden District. So she coordinated 2 charter buses to meet all of our guests in Jackson Square and again secured a police motorcade to get them there safely and on time! The price for all this work was very fair. It was worth every penny to have someone with such local knowledge and professionalism handling all these responsibilities.
A short word about the band… Kinfolk Brass Band was AMAZING. Prompt, talented beyond words, energetic and dressed to impress.We couldn’t have pulled all this off without FSP. They saw our vision through to the very end and made our guests’ first NOLA experience one they will never soon forget! We are eternally grateful.” – Joe and Liza
