Adonis Rose and The New Orleans Orchestra have a wide following, particularly in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. It will attract many of the same kinds of audience members as the New Orleans Jazz Festival. The two performances will attract a diverse audience, particularly those who are interested in jazz and/or the music of Prince, as well as numerous others from throughout the region. It is, after all, Prince done by master musicians with a New Orleans flavor.
