THE NEW ORLEANS PREACHERS

 

  In 1965, this band made in Lorraine (France) was born in two quavers and three commas.
  Throughout the years, the New Orleans Preachers have always been renewing their enthusiasm and their members around a dynamic initiator and drummer, Jean-Claude Maire and :
Gilles Pernet,  Etienne Florentin et Jean-Pierre Thomas.
