I'm playing at this in a few weeks, apparently the first brass band-focused festival in New Orleans (can that be true?):http://https%3A//scontent.feau1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/53057849_350201285583500_8500506784417447936_n.jpg%3F_nc_cat%3D105%26_nc_ht%3Dscontent.feau1-1.fna%26oh%3Da97824dbbda4e22de657c9373a76b097%26oe%3D5D28D511
TBC, Stooges, Hot 8, Cheeky Blakk, DJ Jubilee, second line dance-off, it sounds like heaven.

Amazing weekend, from playing at the brass band fest and seeing all the bands in one spot (+ Phil Frazier getting honored, that was emotional because he's not in the best of health), to playing a party with the Stooges BB, to the second line on Sunday.
Put some little bits up on instagram, there's a lot more on facebook etc.

Only tangentially related, and I'm not sure if this stuff is your thing at all, but Jordan have you caught Naughty Professor? One of my favorite discoveries at Jazzfest this year. Super talented musicians, and tight arrangements that go a lot of different places.

It was fun.
Brass and International band fest coming up in New Orleans looks good.

No declared winner, and different styles , but I might give Big 6 a slight edge ( shhhh, don’t tell any DC locals I said that)

Just saw the 2018 video of Hot 8 Brass doing Joy Division “Love Will Tear Us Apart (again)”. It’s also on their 2019 Take Cover ep that appears to be available from bandcamp but not on Spotify https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fBuTK-E0gxo
