504 Records is a record label founded by Mike Dine in 1979 that specializes in New Orleans jazz. The name comes from an area code in New Orleans.


Mike Dine was a British architect and jazz fan living in New Orleans when he met Tom Stagg, another British expatriate, jazz fan, and founder of NOLA Records. During the 1960s, Stagg had helped bring to Europe musicians such as John Handy, Andrew Morgan, Louis Nelson, Alton Purnell, Emanuel Sayles, and Kid Thomas. When Dine started 504 Records in 1979, he hired Stagg as a producer, and Stagg shut down NOLA Records.[1]

Dine released The 504 Records Story: 1978–2003 (25 Year Anniversary Release). He died in New Orleans on December 17, 2016.[2]
