      EVENT DETAILS
      New Orleans Helsinki Connection @ Donna's

      New Orleans Helsinki Connection is a group of New Orleans and Helsinki based musicians that play traditional New Orleans jazz with a youthful 21st century touch. Its members represent the very best of this style in their homelands and have been playing together in various bands for years. In the summer of 2002, a long time dream of a joint band finally became reality. The band had a successful three-week tour in Finland. In the fall of 2003, New Orleans Helsinki Connection headed in to the studio, and the new, aptly titled CD "At Last" came out in April 2004. Since then, the NOHC has been often heard on the WWOZ jazz station (also live from Satchmo Fest 2008) and the CD is available again after being out of print for some time. In August 2004, the NOHC performed very successfully at Sildajazz Festival in Haugesund, Norway, at Lahden Jazztori Festival in Lahti, Finland and at Storyville Jazz Club in Helsinki, Finland. The band has been seen in New Orleans for example at the French Quarter Festival (2005-2007), Satchmo Fest (2008), Columns Hotel, National Historical Park, and at Donna's Bar & Grill.

      The band includes the following musicians:
      Tricia Boutté, vocals
      Leroy Jones, trumpet and vocals
      Katja Toivola, trombone
      Todd Duke, guitar
      Paul Longstreth, piano
      Nobu Ozaki, bass
      Thomas Rönnholm, drums
