Emily Asher's Garden Party 

New Orleans Jazz and Early Swing

This versatile band from Brooklyn, NY, combines joyful music from the roots of New Orleans jazz through the Golden Age of American Song with an eclectic mix of charming original compositions.

The Wall St. Journal calls Garden Party “a deliberately prosaic name deviously calculated to describe a very exciting combo” and named their 2013 EP, “Carnival of Joy” a “Superior Album.” 

"Simply extraordinary hot jazz played by some of the finest young musicians devoted to keeping this music alive today." -Ricky Riccardi, Louis Armstrong Biographer

"Garden Party is, as advertised, a party band." -Paul de Barros, The Seattle Times

“Emily and her friends have understood something deep about the delicate balance between honoring the originals and creating something new.” -Michael Steinman JAZZ LIVES
