New Orleans, LA
Add to Cal
Rehearsals began with New Orleans firefighters John Gallagher (guitar), Mike Hux (drums) and Gavin Murray (bass) in the summer of 2016. Jason Faber heard their project and filled out the sound with his dynamic synth and auxillary percussion. Their passion for '60s soul expanded and Carnegie Hall singer and flautist Kelley Dixson (Gumbo Cabaret) was added, then Megan Harris Brunious (Hank III, Izzy Cox, Ninth Ward Marching Band) added her trumpet and back up vocals to fill out the sound. In 2017, piano powerhouse Jordan Anderson (Jordan Anderson Band) jumped in as well as jazz trombone Scotty Yost (St Roch Syncopators), and saxophone phenoms Jeremy Kelley (Bon Bon Vivant, King James and the Special Men) and Michelle Christiansen (March Fourth Marching Band, Maid of Orleans), making The Fleurtations a full scale Motown and Soul band.
