Welcome to the official website of the band formerly called 'Confabulation of Gentry', and now known as:

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 millionaire 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 (and our secret weapon - a clockwork drummer) to provide an instant 'turn of the century' party for any occasion, with authentic upbeat danceable brass sounds that evoke old world New Orleans.

For larger shows, a carnival busker, magician, dancers and silent films complete the picture to present an encompassing vaudeville experience!
