Music makes New Orleans special. And it's everywhere here, especially this fall. Catch your favorite artists and discover new ones at dozens of venues all over town from September 23 - October 9 as part of NOLAxNOLA (NOLA BY NOLA), a citywide celebration of New Orleans music and culture. This year's event is made possible by generous support from the New Orleans Tourism & Cultural Fund.
Since 2010, the Brass-A-Holics have been taking their unique sound around the world. Steeped in the deep musical culture of New Orleans, the band brings a heavy dose of go-go funk to the New Orleans brass sound. In a blending of musical cultures stemming from cities separated by more than a thousand miles, a Brass-A-Holics live show takes the New Orleans brass band culture and infuses it with the electricity of Washington D.C.’s go-go. The resulting sound is both captivating and unique. The band consists of core New Orleans brass elements -trumpet, trombone, saxophone- and adds a full drum set, percussion, keyboard, bass and electric guitar, giving the band limitless options to explore new sonic territory. Whether performing their original music or using the framework of hit pop songs as springboards for fiery improvisations, there is something in the set to appeal to every music fan. Once the music starts, the demographics blend and a brand new experience is created – one that leaves one-of-a-kind memories that live on long after the last note.
The Brass-A-Holics recently recorded a live album and mixtape at The House Of Blues in New Orleans.
The most recent project is Word On The Street: The Live Video Album.
