MacPhail Free Family Music Series: Jack Brass Band
The Jack Brass Band was formed in 1999 in the Twin Cities. Based on the traditions of New Orleans’ brass bands, they are the ambassadors to the Crescent City’s rich musical history. The band plays “Feel-Good Music” for audiences of any age, for any occasion. The band has the ability and repertoire to play everything from old New Orleans jazz from Louis Armstrong’s era, to the modern street Mardi-Gras anthems with the instrumentation, feel, and energy they have mastered through countless gigs, parades, festival appearances, and trips to New Orleans to listen, learn, and play alongside the masters. “If you like your gumbo spicy and your music hot, check out the Jack Brass Band,” said Wynton Marsalis after hearing them. Simply put, the Jack Brass Band brings the party to any event with a rich tradition and a groove that will make you want to get up and dance to the New Orleans sound.
Event runs 10 a.m. to noon, performances at 10:15 and 11:15 a.m.
