Elise Testone
Elise Testone
Exposed to music that ranged from Motown and the Beatles to Queen, Elise Testone began studying privately at the age of 5 and performed at local coffeehouses throughout her teenage years. Testone graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Vocal Performance degree, and continued to hone her skills performing live and teaching music in Charleston. At the age of 27, Testone was approached by a talent scout from American Idol and became a top 6 finalist on the hit show in 2012.

In the wake of her appearance on American Idol, Testone has toured extensively performing original music with her own band as well as participating in a number of successful collaborations, including the James Brown Dance Party and Thankful For Amy Winehouse. Testone has also appeared on such popular TV programs as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Live with Kelly, Access Hollywood, Good Day New York, and Good Morning America. Testone's original music has drawn comparisons to legends including Ella Fitzgerald, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, James Brown and Lauryn Hill.

Outer Borough Brass Band
Outer Borough Brass Band
Like the unique combination of a Parkway Surf & Turf Po’ Boy, the Outer Borough Brass Band deliciously melds the precision of jazz with the soul of the second line. Blending crisp technique and dirty funk, the OBBB delivers authentic Nola brass band grooves to the boroughs of NYC, putting a fresh spin on classic covers and throbbing originals that sound as though they were written 30 years ago. Led by Loyola University New Orleans alum Joe Scatassa, the OBBB’s lineup is chock-full of Crescent City veterans, and NYC mainstays who have logged time with Antibalas, the New Orleans Nightcrawlers, Honey Island Swamp Band, Afroskull, and many others. After putting numerous unsuspecting hips in motion during their debut on Mardi Gras Day 2011, the Outer Borough Brass Band has quickly ascended to share the stage with the likes of Rebirth Brass Band, Soul Rebels Brass Band, Glen David Andrews, the Joe Krown Trio, and many other modern-day titans of New Orleans music. Hold your hanky high because the Outer Borough Brass Band is in town. Get ready to get down.
