The Big Bad Preservation Hall Brass Band
Following in the footsteps of the great New Orleans jazz tradition, The PresHall Brass is the resident brass band of New Orleans most treasured jazz venue, Preservation Hall. Comprised of members of the great Olympia and Young Tuxedo Brass Bands, PHB tours worldwide spreading the musical gospel of New Orleans’ unique musical and cultural heritage. Led by the 84 years young Daniel “Weenie” Farrow, the PHB repertoire spans from traditional classics to the hard-hitting marching tunes heard in New Orleans parades.
Aurora Nealand and the Royal Roses
The Royal Roses grew out of the rich resurgence that traditional jazz is seeing in New Orleans amongst the younger generation of musicians today. Saxophonist/vocalist Aurora Nealand has been playing in various groups in New Orleans since 2005. The Royal Roses, founded in 2010, is her first venture as a bandleader. The Royal Roses draw their repertoire heavily from Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhart and traditional jazz of New Orleans. Comprised of some of the finest young players on the New Orleans music scene today, the Royal Roses are seeking to breath new energy, arrangements and compositions into this genre of music while exploring and learning from its rich history and tradition.
The G String Orchestra
The G String Orchestra plays traditional and original eastern European folk and klezmer music and is based out of New Orleans, LA. GSO is currently an instrumental trio consisting of violin, accordion, and double bass. And playing pan-Balkan music ranging from romantic waltzes to driving coceks, pulsing horas to foot moving bulgars, heart wrenching greek rembetica ballads to the hungarian czardas!
