New Breed Brass Band

Aug 9, Friday - 6pm
Jay Paul Company Main Stage

New Breed Brass Band fuses NOLA’s fertile brass band tradition with Caribbean, hip-hop, and modern R&B in the vein of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak. The explosive group makes music by and for the Crescent City’s next generation: joyful, vital and unstoppable.

New Orleans is a roiling creative cauldron, and the New Breed Brass Band is one of the latest combos to forge a 21st century spin on the city’s essential polyphonic tradition. Steeped in second-line culture, the band’s roots are undeniable. It’s led by drummer Jenard Andrews, son of Tremé trumpet legend James Andrews and nephew of New Orleans scene lynchpin Trombone Shorty. Jenard credits his uncle with pushing the band to develop its own style after hearing them mimicking the seminal Rebirth Brass Band in rehearsal. 

Under Trombone Shorty’s tutelage a new sound was born, and audiences took notice. The band has toured North America and Europe and opened for The Fray, Blackalicious and Dr. John. With the band’s debut album, 2023’s Made In New Orleans, New Breed is hewing a new path for 21st century second-lines, and everyone’s invited to join the procession.
