One day over in Bulldog Land at Louisiana Tech University, a group of Music Majors lived on Everett Street. To quench their thirst for jazz, Jonathan "JMart" Martinez, Josh Hires, Mark Michelle, and Brent Latin met in the Band of Pride Band Room to spark the beginnings of Everett Street Jazz. They performed all over Ruston, Monroe, Shreveport, Bossier, and everywhere in between

- bringing class to Louisiana for 10 years.

As the original band members graduated LA Tech, started their careers, and moved here and there, the torch has been passed to

Cory Joy Craig and her crew - still harboring the spirit of jazz, fun, and Everett Street.

Everett Street Jazz lives on and would love to bring this same spirit to your event!
