Stooges Brass Band
Stooges Brass Band
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.
The Stooges Brass Band continues to tour performing at venues throughout the country and appearing at famed festivals such as New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, Utah Arts Festival, Discover Jazz, American Folk Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, , Great American Brass Band Festival, and more.

The Stooges Brass Band has also answered the call to serve as cultural ambassadors and were employed by the US Embassy to tour, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Other international appearances include the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, the Durham Brass Festival in the UK and Nuits D’Afrique, Tremblant Blues Festival in Canada.

Whether they're second-lining in the back streets of the Crescent City, or performing their spirited stage show, the Stooges Brass Band delivers an authentic New Orleans celebration.


Hayley Jane and the Primates
Hayley Jane and the Primates
Hayley Jane and the Primates combine Americana, soul and rock & roll with rich lyrical imagery that electrifies the heart. At the helm is rising star, Hayley Jane. She leads the band through an infectious live experience filled with powerful vocal range, vibrant dance choreography and dramatic performance that captivates her devoted fanbase.

Hailing from Boston MA, the band was the winner of the 2014 New England Music Awards’ Roots/Americana Act Of The Year and has been performing at premiere venues and festivals across the country. Hayley Jane has also established herself as a strong female presence in the national music scene and was recently featured in the RELIX “Women Who Rock” Issue.

The band’s first full-length album, Gasoline, was engineered by Brian Wallace of Sublime and released in 2014. The album was recorded during a West Coast Tour that kicked off at the iconic Whisky a Go Go and ended with a Monday Night Football performance at Qualcomm Stadium.

Hayley Jane and the Primates are releasing their sophomore album “We’re Here Now” in the Fall of 2017. Produced by Craig Brodhead of Turkuaz, the album carries an energy and poetry that represents the best of American music.
Jamie McLean Band
Jamie McLean Band
Jamie McLean had a big decision to make in 2006. He could continue to tour the globe as the guitarist for New Orleans’ famed Dirty Dozen Brass Band playing sets at Madison Square Garden, Bonnaroo, Japan’s Fuji Rock and working with the likes of Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews and Norah Jones. Or he could do it his way, take the road less traveled and begin to lead Jamie McLean Band. It seemed as though there was only one option.

“It was certainly a tough choice to leave my bread and butter gig but I could feel it in my heart that I needed to be singing and recording and performing my own music. I’ve never been happier!”

For the last five years McLean has never looked back and he’s been relentlessly touring and recording with Jamie McLean Band. Jamie McLean Band, which also features Brian Griffin on drums and Ben Mars on bass has released 5 albums Sunday Morning (2011), Time Of My Life (2011), Completely
(2010), American Heartache (2008) and This Time Around (2006).

Touring is a staple for Jamie McLean Band and they’ve hit the road with the likes of Gregg Allman, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Blues Traveler, North Mississippi Allstars, Joan Armatrading, Drive By Truckers and Gov’t Mule. Jamie Mclean Band has also appeared at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, Gathering of the Vibes, Bele Chere, Ottawa Blues Fest, Quebec City Summer Fest, and Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam to name a few. McLean has also enjoyed the sponsorship of Gibson Guitars, Fuchs Amplifiers, La Bella Strings, Blue Microphones, John Varvatos and Esquire Magazine.

Jamie McLean Band is now set to release their first and long awaited live album. Recorded at the famed Gibson Showroom in New York City Live At Gibson captures the band in its element. Live and in front of a captivated crowd is where Jamie McLean Band truly shines and this night was no different. The band dug deep into their catalog to produce a set list and
album that features their original brand of blues, rock and soul. Special guests like American Idol winner Taylor Hicks and Robert Randolph keys man Jason Crosby add some great flavor to the set. Bluesy staples like “Crazy About You” and “Country Living” get turned up even more in front of a crowd and JMB does more than justice to covers like Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider” and Otis Redding’s “Mr. Pitiful.”

Jamie McLean Band will tour behind their new album throughout the US and Canada this summer. Don’t miss their amazing live set when they roll into a town near you!
