The Hot Magnolias

The Hot Magnolias

Cincinnati, Ohio


The Hot Magnolias creates a unique blend of New Orleans-style traditional jazz and Bourbon Street funk to keep crowds engaged and moving.  We’d love to bring our Second-Line street parade to your party and provide an authentic NOLA experience.

Formed in the summer of 2013, The Hot Magnolias quickly became a downtown Cincinnati favorite with some three-dozen performances and over 600 Facebook followers.  We celebrated the 2014 New Year to a sold-out room at Arnold’s Bar and Grill, led the BockFest parade, and play weekly happy hour gigs at Japp’s - Since 1879, in OTR.  The Hot Magnolia’s upcoming performances from Lexington to Akron include private weddings, a 30th anniversary party, multiple OTR events, Second Sunday on Main, street festivals and PaddleFest to name just a few.  New album available for free download on our Band Camp page linked above. 

The Hot Magnolia’s talented eight-member group includes vocals, a horn section, banjo, electric guitar, drums, bass, and keyboards.  Collectively the group has decades of experience performing at festivals, concert halls, and special events throughout the United States and abroad.  We bring a professional party atmosphere and frankly; we put on a great show!  Your party won’t regret having us.


“Cincy’s finest Creole/Cajun shake yo’ tail feather, wave your hanky, bunch of beauties.   2nd Lines, Jazz Funerals, Brass Bands, Mardi Gras, NOLA Funk and so many other unique ingredients blend together to create this New Orleans musical gumbo.  Each one of these elements is explored during an evening with The Hot Magnolias. As authentic as any band currently on Frenchman St, I promise you dat!”
