The New Orleans Steamcog Orchestra is quite an entertaining spectacle, furnishing the sophisticated and yet strangely modern sounds of turn-of-the-century ingenuity! Based in New Orleans and fronted by 'thousandaire' inventor and philanthropist Prof. Milo Reginald Pinkerton, this band of adventurers was culled from far flung city and countryside alike across the Earth to unite in furthering Prof. Pinkerton's singular steam-powered vision: the excitement of audience ears, minds and feet. The group has vowed not to rest, until the entire world is dancing madly to their syncopated rhythms and humming their memorable melodies.
The New Orleans Steamcog Orchestra is a Dixieland/Ragtime band with a difference! Male & female singers mix with trumpet, trombone, clarinet, xylophone, upright bass, piano & banjo. With the steady beat provided by 'COGSWORTHY' our amazing clockwork drummer, we provide an instant 'turn of the century' party for any occasion. The Steamcog Orchestra combines authentic and danceable brass sounds with a hip, humorous, appealing retro visual style that evoke old-world New Orleans. The group is currently performing in support of their debut album, 'Victory Through Steam'.
"Among so many musical groups that sound alike, the New Orleans Steamcog Orchestra stood out: they stayed in the time period for the most part with an occasional wink to the future, and executed a complicated and creative program oozing with energy that had the audience tapping toes and singing along. And the steam-powered drum set was a stroke of genius! You won't see a more original group! BRAVO" - May Gwin Waggoner, PhD
