Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Party JAMBALAYA BRASS BAND at Times Square
Type: Music & Concerts
The Jambalaya Brass Band is New York City's ultimate New Orleans party band. Since 1998 they've been kickin' it hard with a flavor straight from the streets of New Orleans, paying their respects to the unique musical traditions of the city by incorporating a special blend of R&B, funk, gospel, traditional jazz, zydeco, Latin, hip-hop, and bebop. The band will take you on a historical journey through the New Orleans brass band tradition - a joyous romp starting from the early beginnings with Buddy Bolden, Jelly Roll Morton, and Louis Armstrong, and ending up with their own modern sounds influenced by the Rebirth, Dirty Dozen, and New Birth brass bands.
