New Orleans wedding musicians

Can anyone recommend a small jazz or blues band (3 or fewer musicians) to play a short wedding reception in a small space in New Orleans in October?

We're getting married this October in New Orleans and planning the wedding from afar. Most of it is nailed down, but finding music has been hard -- the few leads I've gotten have been unavailable (perhaps I waited too long to do this...) or are too large and/or loud for our purposes. The wedding will be in a smallish space and the proprietor tells us that any live music will have to be relatively quiet. We'd like jazz or blues (delta-style blues is our favorite, but we're flexible), and I think anything with any horns will probably be too loud for the space.
I've seen this question
-- my question is similar except for the quietness limitation. Looked into the New Orleans Jazz Vipers and I'm afraid they'll be too large for us (related question: is it rude to ask a 4-6-person band if they'd play with only a few of their members?).
