Line up

August 3 - Critical Brass

Critical Brass began playing nightclubs, funeral parades, and Mardi Gras parties in California 12 years ago with a deeply liquid foundation in the New Orleans Second Line tradition. The band showcases a unique dance-crazy blend of dixieland jazz, gospel funk and roll, Afro-latin grooves, and raw neo-soul hip-hop freestyles.
