The New Orleans Jazz Vipers are a seven-piece swing band from New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A. The band's repertoire comes from the likes of Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, and Louis Armstrong as well as lesser-known artists.

Amplification is rarely used and they are part of a growing number of bands on the Frenchmen Street music scene who trust that the audience will eventually quiet down enough to enjoy the music.


Founding members Joe Braun , John Rodli and Jack Fine first met in 1995 on the music scene in Jackson Square. Robert Snow completed the rhythm section when the band was formed in 1999. Gradually the band evolved to its present formation. Charlie Fardella , joined in the summer of 2002. Tom Saunders , whose extensive knowledge of the traditional jazz repertoire has been honed by years as a DJ at WWOZ, joined the band soon after. The most recent additions to the band are Bruce Brackman and Matt Rhody . Lead vocals are handled by Braun, Rodli, Saunders and Fardella. All the members of the band provide backing vocals.

In 2009, six members of the Vipers formed the New Orleans Cottonmouth Kings. The Cottonmouth Kings include John Rodli, Robert Snow, Bruce Brackman, Charlie Fardella, Matt Rhody, and Tom Saunders.
As of 2010,the current line up includes Joe Braun and Jack Fine plus Craig Klein , Jason King and Joshua Gouzy (bass}.
