Ted Hefko and his band The Thousandaires bring original stories to life with the
spontaneity of jazz, the bare-bones sensibility of early folk and the vibrancy of New
Orleans. Ted Hefko and The Thousandaires encompasses the full range of his
musical experiences and talents, with Ted strumming a guitar while he sings his
original lyrics before switching to tenor sax or clarinet for his solos.
After several years living in Brooklyn, writing, touring and recording, Ted is happy
to once again reside in his musical home: New Orleans, Louisiana. His latest album
Distillations of The Blues is playing all over North America and the English speaking
world and he’s looking forward to taking his new line-up on tour in 2016.
Born in Madison, WI, Ted developed an appreciation for a wide variety of jazz
and world music at an early age
