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
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.
