    Band Bio’s-

    SpeakEasy: At a time when repression was rampant the Speakeasies gave way to freedom and self-expression through music and dance. We are the embodiment of that spirit. We are SpeakEasy. Influenced by the culture and the community we create feel-good music to bring all people together.
    Join us and experience SpeakEasy music, spread good vibes, and celebrate fun times.

    “Cafe Au Lait is a New Orleans based trio that writes, records, and performs original works with talented vocalist while striving to preserve the rich jazz, blues, and afro-cuban traditions of the port city while honoring our love of Motown, rock and roll, and relentless funk.”

    Among the premiere up and comers from the Southern scene, Luke St. John is one of few who showcases genuine thought provoking content through the genre of hip hop. Harnessing an alchemical blend of etheric wordplay and folk-like storytelling, Luke St. John provides an enriching experience for his listening audience illustrating life experiences as well as universal truths that are relative to all.
