The Legend of Kanola…

In the cold frozen tundra of Kalamazoo, Michigan in 2013, jazz trumpeter, Benje Daneman, was summoned by a local music venue to put together some “New Orleans” music for a Sunday Gumbo Brunch. He called up the grooviest drummer he knew, Jeff Moehle, to join in. With vigor, Jeff agreed and the rest was history. Since then, with the changing faces of Kanola (except for Benje & Jeff), came a deeper love and respect for the amazing music, history, and culture of New Orleans. Every gig points directly south to The Big Easy!
