Rhythm & Rain is currently booking gigs for 2023! If your venue is hosting live music, we’d love to entertain on your stage! We are available as a solo, duo, trio or four-piece band for area venues, corporate events, festivals, club socials and more. Send us an e-mail to inquire about booking Rhythm & Rain at your venue or for your next event!



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 – Sunday) from 5-9 PM!


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)!

“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.
