Since you are probably more or less confined to your home these days, we hope this website will provide a pleasant "get-a-way" while we adjust to a new way of life. It may take a while, but THE MUSICIANS WILL BE BACK!!!
Frank "Doc" Wagner and all the musicians featured in docsdrummingworld are from New Orleans and surrounding areas. The band members come from all walks of life, yet unified by their love of music and sharing it with the New Orleans community. Venues include libraries, retirement communities and private functions. Most of what you will hear features BIG BAND music, but you may also choose to listen to small combos or soloists. Doc will occasionally post musical events he has attended, so check out the website on a regular basis!
All you need to do is click on the tabs at the top of the page and enjoy the music! It's entertaining, uplifting and free! ENJOY!

We have another special treat for you! The 50th Annual Loyola Jazz Festival was held on March 6th and 7th and highlights of this annual event are posted for your enjoyment! Find the time to tune in to Delgado Jazz Ensemble, Loyola Jazz Ensemble, and Loyola Jazz Faculty. If you are curious about the younger musicians, you will be thrilled to see Fontainebleau High School Jazz Ensemble and a clip from Haynes Academy Jazz Combo. For those who like contemporary voice...there's also something for you...the Loyola Contemporary Jazz Voice Ensemble. Wish we could have recorded the entire two day program...maybe next year! Now, all you need to do is find the time for it all...make the time! (And "the virus" has given us all much free time.)
