NEW BREED BRASS BAND
In the tradition of New Orleans' brass bands comes the next great generation of musicians from the Crescent City. Recently named Best Emerging Artist at Offbeat's Best of the Beat Awards and Best Brass Band at the Big Easy Awards, New Breed Brass Band lives and breathes the culture of New Orleans, infusing funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop into a custom-made enhancement of second-line brass. They have performed at Bonnaroo (3x), Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, among others.
THE BATTERY BRASS BAND
The Battery Brass Band is Charleston's premier 'Street Beat' style brass band, stirring listeners through the melting pot that is Lowcountry music. Battery Brass mixes influences from the birth of Jazz that happened right here in the streets of Charleston with flavors of Mardi Gras from New Orleans, adding a dash of Caribbean seasoning. You'll surely move to the beat with a song selection ranging from traditional New Orleans tunes to modern popular songs. The band is a diverse mix of local music educators, performers, and members of popular local bands including the Charleston Jazz Orchestra.*
