New Orleans, Spiced with soul and a dash of superstition, is the essence of the “Just Right Band”, NOLA’s premier R&B band that's preserving yesteryear's spirit with their blend of R&B, smooth jazz and Southern soul.

Louisiana born and raised, all seven musicians aren't merely influenced by the city's music scene, they live it. Veterans of the community, the group is made up of lead singer Michael Veal aka Ve' Al, Ronald “Shammika” Ernest, guitar,vocals, John “Petoe” Ragas, bass guitar, vocals, Kurt Brunus, keyboards, vocals,trumpet, Warner Williams, keyboards, Emile Hall Jr. sax/percussion/vocals and Brennan Williams,drums/vocals.

Longtime friends, the seven wanted to start a project where they simply jammed together. No pressure, just a good time and a throwback to a golden era. Inspired by Brian McKnight, Will Downing, and Luther Vandross, the guy’s have been creating what they call “smile music” since 2013, and to them it's all about enjoying the collection of talent that makes their sound “just right.” That may be their secret ingredient: doing it for fun; which makes it fun for everyone else.

The group's debut album “I Want More “is scheduled to be released in June through Swamp Island Records. And so far people seem to agree that Just Right Band is on to something. The title track “I Want More” was #1 for six consecutive weeks in CashBox Magazines Hip Hop, R&B charts; and the New Release "It's Gotta B Love" has been #1 for the past five weeks. Not to mention a recent feature in Cashbox Magazine. Perhaps that's why they've become a local favorite, a band that's “just right” for practically every occasion.
