- New Orleans Jazz
New Orleans jazz for a new generation
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 the city’s second-line brass band tradition. The group brings in outside influences like Earth Wind & Fire and Brass Construction to interpret songs for every genre and make it their own sound. New Breed Brass Band made its street debut in 2013 at the Nine Times Second Line. Since then, they have showcased their originality opening in North America and Europe as well as opening for such diverse bands as The Fray, Red Baraat, Blackalicious, Dr. John, The Waterboys, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. Most of the band has been playing music since they were toddlers and count such New Orleans legends as James “12” Andrews, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, Glen David Andrews and the late Travis “Trumpet Black” Hill as family members. Honing their childhood experiences playing music with family, high school marching band and concert ensembles, the members of New Breed are united to one cause: rocking each show and entertaining audiences to the maximum degree possible. Whether performing in their hometown or on the road, New Breed brings the singular vibe of the New Orleans second-line with them.
