The Magnificence is an almost traditional New Orleans style band. The band has been described as enthusiastic, passionate, humorous and quirky leaving audiences happily uplifted. 

All members of the band play a variety of styles of music but are brought together by their love of all things New Orleans. Their music is rooted in the early jazz tradition but reflects the musical influences of each band member. 

Brothers Cameron (trumpet/vocals) and Lachi Smith (drums) have been making music together for over 30 years and with Paul Edwards ( tenor sax) for 20 years. The three formed The Magnificence in 2017 and are joined by Joe O'Keeffe on banjo and Julian Smith on double bass.

They growl, they mewl, they cook – and they make audiences feel better about otherwise questionable life choices.
