“Magri shuffles, struts, and swings with understatement and slushy propulsion... And his slower beats could corrupt youth.”
— Modern Drummer Magazine
THE WORD ON THE STREET...
“Magri's band is smokin', with Duke Heitger, an incredible trumpet player with a bold, brassy, solid sound that practically knocks you off your chair... and Magri slamming home those bumps and rim-shots like Gene Krupa in 'Ball of Fire.”
— New Orleans Times Picayune
“No question, one of the hottest shows you'll ever see is Ronnie Magri and his New Orleans Jazz Band... Magri recaptures the saucy French Quarter strip-club sound that kept the spirit of Storyville alive long after it closed down. In lesser hands, this project could have come across as corny and lame, but don't you worry! Magri and his boys pull it off with just the right attitude, style and hip-shakin' swing. ”
