The 41 players is a group that was formed by John Deley in 2010 because of his love for the music and cultural heritage of New Orleans. He asked drummer Ethan Eubanks to join him in the band and over several years and many gigs, they became co-leaders of the musical collective that play the music of New Orleans from Louis Armstrong to Dr John, and everything else in between. The group got it's name from Pier 41 which is at the end of Dikeman Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn where John Deley lives, and where the 41 players had their first Monday night residency at the now gone and beloved bar “Bait and Tackle”.
