STOOGES BRASS BAND

Friday, August 29th

The Stooges Brass Band has earned their rank as one of the elite brass bands in New Orleans.  The band consistently provides a welcome blast of true New Orleans spirit engaging audiences with their innovative blend of traditional New Orleans brass sounds, contemporary jazz and hip-hop beats.

Emerging onto the scene in 1996, the Stooges Brass Band has gained notoriety as a full-blown musical party immersing the crowd in a cut-loose vibe that is contemporary yet deeply rooted in the culturally rich musical legacy of New Orleans.  The band has shared the stage with: Ozomatli, Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Shemekia Copeland, Pedrito Martinez Group, Galactic, Brownout, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Big Sam's Funky Nation, The Funky Meters, and Jessica Simpson, among others.

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 for the title of "Red Bull Street Kings: Best Brass Band" (the subject of the documentary Brass Bands of New Orleans: Red Bull Street Kings). Along with this auspicious title, the band won a recording and mentorship session at the Red Bull Studios in California. You can watch the results of this project here: The Red Bull Studio Sessions. The band also received the award for "Best Contemporary Brass Band 2011" at the Big Easy Music Awards.

Aotearoa

Saturday, September 6th,

 

Aotearoa (A-O-TAY-UH-ROW-UH), the two-man jungle-funk explosion have built their reputation on endless touring. Pointing the van Westward in 2010, the forty subsequent states and countless stages have have brought into the world their debut LP "STRANGE WEATHER." Heralded by the band as an American ode to booty-sweat and a drunken eulogy to apathy, the songs are seasoned by the highway and only truly come alive in person.

The guitar / drum duo is comprised of mufti-instrumentalists Jacob Lerman and Ilan Gitter who by way of sample free live-looping and a notoriously raucous live show have managed to take the familiar dance-rock form back to it's long dormant animalistic roots.

Conehead Buddha

Saturday, September 13th,

Conehead Buddha has built a solid career as one of the top drawing acts on the East Coast jamband scene.  True originals in the genre, the band started alongside veteran acts such as moe. and God Street Wine.  After taking a much-needed hiatus, front man and founder Chris Fisher reunited with his friends Terry and Shannon Lynch (brother-sister duo and longtime Conehead Buddha horn players).  The three gathered a crew of seasoned musicians to rejuvenate the band.  In 2011, they hit the road hard with a newfound intensity, releasing new material and playing high-profile venues and events throughout the northeast.

The raging lead guitar with funky organ and analog keyboard sounds, co-mingling with the full horn section and percussion breathe new life into Conehead Buddha’s unique blend of rock, funk, ska, reggae, and salsa. The band’s captivating live show has been steadily winning over a new generation of concert goers, providing the party and keeping audiences dancing from start to finish. Conehead Buddha is the band that people will still be talking about on Monday morning.

Big mean

Sound Machine

Saturday, September 20th,

In 2009, Big Mean Sound Machine formed in Ithaca, New York with one goal: to create music that stimulates both Body AND Brain. The result is a fiery exhibition of artfully conceived dance music that truly is Big and Mean. Today, BMSM comprises a collective of over 15 analog artists spread out over the Northeastern United States, who strive day in and day out to reanimate and reinterpret Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz, Fusion and just about everything else, all through a postmodern lens. Anyone who has witnessed The Machine live in action knows that their performances are among the heaviest and the sweatiest. The Big Mean Sound Machine maintains a busy performance schedule, captivating cities all over the Northeast United States- spreading further each day. For those [like us] who are tired of the status quo, there is good news: THE BIG MEAN SOUND MACHINE HAS OFFICIALLY ARRIVED.

Primate Fiasco

Friday, September 26th,

The Primate Fiasco uses instruments that are loud without electricity, giving them the opportunity to attack at any moment, in any location, with or without permission. No one is safe, not even an elevator or city bus. If The Primate Fiasco sees a dull moment somewhere, they will pop out of the nearest sewer drain or trash can to lead an irresistible dance party.

On stage, the sound is different. This band has pioneered what is possible with mind­bending harmonies of dual saxs, funky pockets of a hyperactive Sousaphone player and banjo that thinks it’s a Fender Strat. Add lyrics that grab hold of even the most inattentive audience and beats that channel surf like a remote that’s been sat on. The music is always high energy and extremely imaginative. Most importantly, this is fun. People smile from the first beat to the last smoldering ash of what was previously a dance floor.

Throughout the Northeast and well-beyond (thanks to the power of radio) the Primate Fiasco experiment has evolved into the animated superhero persona that you see today— humorously drawn, but based on a true story— and that you will continue to see circulating throughout the music-loving club and festival community, via the highways, byways, subways… and other ways.
