Stooges Brass Band
Stooges Brass Band
The Stooges Brass Band has gained notoriety across the USA and the world as a full-blown musical party whether leading a second-line parade or performing their spirited stage show.

The band is undeniably one of the hardest working bands out of New Orleans, and their dedication to their craft has made an impact. The Stooges Brass Band victoriously battled in the finals for the title of "Red Bull Street Kings: Best Brass Band" under the iconic Claiborne Bridge in NOLA (the subject of a recent documentary). Along with this auspicious title, the band won an all-expenses paid trip for a recording and mentorship session with a producer in the Red Bull Studios in California. You can watch the results of this project here: The Red Bull Studio Sessions.

In April 2011, the Stooges Brass Band were awarded the title of "Best Contemporary Brass Band" at the Big Easy Music Awards. The momentum continued in 2012, touring clubs throughout the country and appearing at famed festivals such at Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, headlining the Utah Arts Festival, Discover Jazz Festival, American Folk Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Great American Brass Band Festival, and more.

In June 2012, the band was employed by the US Embassy as cultural ambassadors to New Orleans on a two week tour through Pakistan. They continued to tour internationally, with a two week tour of the United Kingdom for the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, the Durham Brass Festival, and more.

Whether they're second-lining in the back streets of the Crescent City, or performing across the country, the Stooges Brass Band immerse crowds in a high-energy, cut loose vibe that's contemporary yet deeply rooted in the culturally rich musical legacy of city of New Orleans.
The Crooked Vines
The Crooked Vines
Based out of New Orleans, Louisiana, The Crooked Vines is a funk-pop collective that brings exciting funk-fueled jams to the stage. Their heavy-hitting energy sustains and tastefully dips into spacey pleasure throughout their shows bringing a new sound to life. Mikayla Braun's sensitive yet compelling voice leads the ensemble, backed by Taylor Mrowski on bass and Woody Hill on drums. This duo holds down the gritty rhythm section grooves where Steven Schwartz perfectly places his sweetly distorted keyboards, creating the perfect pocket for the hard-hitting horn lines provided by Lori LaPatka on saxophone and James Keene on trombone. The group released their first studio effort on October 10th, 2015, self-titled The Crooked Vines, and their second album "Alive" on November 10th, 2017. Both are available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, BandCamp, and most other major platforms. You can find the group in New Orleans at venues such as Tipitina's, The Howlin' Wolf, House of Blues, and Gasa Gasa. They have opened for The Grammy Award winning Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Mystikal, George Porter Jr., Naughty Professor, Cyril Neville, John "Papa" Gros of Papa Grows Funk and more!
