NEW SINGLE ALERT!
Who dem NoLNauts ???
Based in the Albany, NY area, Nolanauts is a fast rising, high octane, 10-piece rockin’ funk collective fired up about celebrating the joyful historical and contemporary fire of New Orleans music, sharing it with fans of all ages while creating a vibrant party atmosphere wherever they go. The ensemble features passionate, committed musicians of different generations playing music by Crescent City legends, from 50-60-year- old chestnuts to more contemporary songs. Starting with a livestream presentation at The Linda WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio in Albany, fans, NoLaNauts have performed at such mid-size venues as Frog Alley in Schenectady, Putnam Place in Saratoga Springs, Lark Hall in Albany (including an opening slots for NOLA legends, Glen David Andrews & John “Papa” Gros), Cohoes Music Hall in Cohoes, NY and at the Rye Bread Music & Arts Festival. The band dropped their debut original single “Early Warning” in February 2023 and has three upcoming singles set for release throughout 2024.
“The Nolanauts created a New Orleans style procession in downtown Saratoga Springs before their show at Putnam Place to literally drum up followers and build excitement for their show that night! They are a party! It’s a pleasure to work with each of them and if you haven’t seen them live you don’t know what you’re missing” - Michelle Moyer
“The NoLaNauts try to capture a city, a mindset, a way of life. They are all about New Orleans, and they’re on a mission to transport you there every time they play.” - Mike Stampalia
““The NolaNauts brought the spirit of New Orleans to SingleCut North, which resulted in an incredible live show. Tom and the band were professional, enthusiastic, and accommodating from load in through break down. Staff and customers alike agree: the Nauts put on the highest caliber of performance!“” - Teresa Campbell, Events General Manager
