Jack Brass Band

March with the Jack Brass Band on the Greenway! The crack of the snare drum, the blat of the sousaphone, the blaring brass over all—the Jack Brass Band is an infectious machine, one that drives crowds to their feet and commands them to groove. Formed in 1999, this is the only New Orleans–style brass band in Minneapolis, true ambassadors of the Crescent City’s brass band tradition. The Jack Brass Band embraces the traditions of New Orleans jazz, while adding old-time blues, rock, hip-hop, pop, funk, and reggae. Following this recipe, it brings to the table an overflowing plate of greasy down-home music for your soul. “If you like your gumbo spicy and your music hot, check out the Jack Brass Band,” said Wynton Marsalis. 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.
