Rhythm & Rain has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. Our 4-nights-a-week gig at the Tropical Isle Bourbon has been canceled until further notice while Bourbon Street is shut down, and we’ve had over 170 gigs and counting canceled since the pandemic began. But worst of all, our own Rain Jaudon tested positive for COVID-19 back in March 2020, shortly after the shutdown, and was laid up in bed and very sick for over a month. It’s been a tough battle, with Rain being in a high-risk category as a type 2 diabetic, but he is pressing on despite still dealing with some lingering effects and fatigue.

We’ve posted some exclusive recordings on our official YouTube channel and have more in the works and are looking at booking some gigs in early 2021. Many have asked how you can show your support for Rain during the shutdown. Prayers, positive thoughts and good vibrations are always needed and appreciated. Buying merch at our online store or leaving a tip in the virtual tip jar on PayPal or Venmo are also great ways to support us when we need you the most!

We promise to be back as soon as it is safe to do so. And we heal…until we can drink together again. Y’all be safe out there.



Born and raised in Indianola in the Mississippi Delta, Rain Jaudon has been a staple on the Gulf Coast music scene for over 20 years. Only a couple of years after calling the Mississippi Gulf Coast home, he received the Outstanding Coastal Musician award, which recognized him as an active and promising regional performer by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Musicians Association. And active he was, playing nearly 300 live shows in the U.S. every year for well over a decade.

He picked up a guitar in the holiday season of 1985 with just a chord sheet and a Beatles songbook provided by his dad and hasn’t looked back since.  A natural storyteller, Rain’s vocal stylings reflect the musical influences that set him on this career path, such as The Beatles, Jim Croce, James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, just to name a few. His affable personality and passion for his music shines through in every performance and creates a trip down memory lane for his audiences, while leaving them with new memories before they walk out the venue doors.

Rain may have cut back on the quantity of performances in recent years, but not the quality. His fun, high-energy shows have landed Rhythm & Rain as a house band at the legendary Tropical Isle Bourbon in New Orleans every weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday) from 5-9 PM and continues to be a mainstay at area festivals and events.

As an entertainment director, it is important to hire professionals who come in, set up with no excuses, always in a wonderful mood, and happy to be there. That is exactly why Rhythm & Rain has always been one of my favorite go-to bands for over a decade. Their happy-go-lucky attitude is contagious to the stage crew and crowd. You can book with Rain and know you and the audience will be more than glad you did.

Rhythm and Rain….a great little band we enjoy here at T-Bone Toms in Kemah, TX, whenever we can get them to come play.  They play regularly in New Orleans on Bourbon Street but do venture out occasionally. Rain and Company are very talented and funny.  They have originals, which are awesome, but they also cover most of the funny songs you heard on the radio years ago. They are excellent musicians with great guitar licks, funny lyrics and harmony, you get it all with Rhythm and Rain…

To get the proper exposure from the sun, you must have Rain…Rhythm and Rain. What a major talent! What a great person!
