NOW BOOKING FOR 2021

What a difference a year makes! Rhythm & Rain, like so many others, was hit very hard by the coronavirus pandemic. After playing four nights a week for the last decade at the famous Tropical Isle on Bourbon Street, they had over 200 gigs canceled since the shutdown in March 2020. Both Rain Jaudon and guitarist Dwight Breland tested positive for COVID-19 back in March/April 2020, and Rain still battles with the lingering effects and fatigue after being laid up for over a month with the virus.

But we are back at it and booking gigs for 2021! While New Orleans still prohibits live music (as of March 2021), we’ve been booking gigs along the Gulf Coast! If your venue is hosting live music, we’d love to entertain on your stage! Send us an e-mail to inquire about booking Rhythm & Rain at your venue or for your next event!

Many have asked how you can show your support after having over 200 gigs canceled in the last year. Prayers, positive thoughts and good vibrations are always needed and appreciated. Buying merch at our online store or leaving a tip in the virtual tip jar on PayPal or Venmo are also great ways to support us when we need you the most! We cannot thank you enough for the support and generosity you have shown us in this past year.

 

MEET RHYTHM AND RAIN

Led by singer/guitarist Rain Jaudon, Rhythm & Rain have entertained hundreds of thousands across the southeastern United States with an Island/Trop Rock/Comedy style show flavored with some Mississippi Delta heritage. The band recently took home Best Local Musician/Band and Best Entertainment – Nightlife honors in the 2019 SunHerald People’s Choice Awards.

This award-winning band captures audiences by reinventing many of your favorite tunes, while throwing in original material popular amongst their fanbase. Ever heard The Who in the style of Johnny Cash? Or maybe Metallica in the style of Jimmy Buffett? Then you’ve probably been to a Rhythm & Rain show!

For the last decade, they have been a mainstay on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, playing over 200 dates a year at the famous Tropical Isle. Catch them at the Tropical Isle Bourbon (721 Bourbon Street) every weekend (Friday – Monday) from 5-9 PM!

THE RHYTHM & RAIN EXPERIENCE

Rain Jaudon, the band’s founder and singer/guitarist, is joined by “Naked” Rob Smith on drums, and a rotation of talented guitarists/vocalists with Dwight Breland, Frank Fairbanks and Austin Sicard. And if you haven’t seen Rhythm & Rain live, you’re missing out! Whether it’s our house gig down on Bourbon Street or playing area festivals and corporate events throughout the year, there’s something for everyone and you’ll leave with a smile on your face! From Buffett to blues and everything in between, we play it all (but maybe not in the way you’re used to hearing it)!

Reviews & Endorsements

“As an entertainment director, it is important to hire professionals who come in, set up with no excuses, always in a wonderful mood, and happy to be there. That is exactly why Rhythm & Rain has always been one of my favorite go-to bands for over a decade. Their happy-go-lucky attitude is contagious to the stage crew and crowd. You can book with Rain and know you and the audience will be more than glad you did.

– Aaron McGill
