Bio

Founded by front man, Miles Doleac, The New Orleans-based Drapers are an eclectic cover band (at least primarily; the band has a smattering of original material as well), whose sets range from glam rock to alternative to rockabilly, each song shaken and floated with their own unique spin. The band’s motto is “keep them guessing” when it comes to their set lists. “We want to surprise our audience constantly with the song choices we make. It’s wonderful to see the looks on peoples’ faces when you transition seamlessly from Zeppelin to Carole King,” says singer Doleac.

The Drapers are relatively new to the regional music scene, but are already developing an avid following in Southern Louisiana and Mississippi with their high-energy blend of crowd-pleasing antics and musical acumen. The band can frequently be found shaking the walls at Sorrelli’s Brick Oven and have also played Carrollton Station, Hurricanes, The Turtle, Whiskey Dix Bad Monkey ,Bengal II, Café Prytania, The Downtown Irish Club’s 2010 Old 9th Ward Fest (among other venues and events in the New Orleans area) and The Bottling Company and Sidelines Sports’ Café in Hattiesburg, MS. The Band has also been featured last year at The Rock and Roll Mardi Gras Marathon 2010 and was featured on ABC 26’s Good Morning New Orleans and Fox 8 news stations alike. The band’s Set for the marathon was broadcasted live to fellow New Orleanians via NewOrleansMusicRadio.com

The Drapers are die hard lovers of the great city of New Orleans, her food, drink, music, festivals and, of course, her beloved New Orleans’ Saints. Doleac, a Hattiesburg native who braved the entertainment meccas of New York City and Los Angeles before settling in New Orleans, has a developed a deep affection for the Crescent City. Says Doleac, “There is simply nowhere in the world like New Orleans. Wherever we might be playing, we thrive on being a 'New Orleans' band, for all the wacky and wonderful things that means.”
