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.

Greg Banks
Greg Banks
Greg Banks, described as "The Saint of Soul", has often been mentioned in the same sentences as Prince, Jimi Hendrix and Lenny Kravitz. As flattering as this is, the New Orleans native understands the magnitude of this comparison and the importance of carrying such genius in music forward.

Greg Banks has mesmerized audiences throughout NYC and the like, so it's no surprise he was chosen by Deli Magazine as NYC's best emerging artist. Fox5TV calls him "A true original" and Billlboard.com hails him as "Our next shining superstar", he electrifies the stage"! With his amazing body of musical works & his hit singles ''Your Love'', ''16'', "Brooklyn Girl", "Summertime" and "NYC" available on iTunes now , this phenomenon is causing a major buzz across the industry. Yes, Mr. Banks may remind you of some, but he certainly duplicates none.

"Hurricane Katrina took away all my tangible possessions but left me with my purpose…in the midst of devastation I found my blessing" -Greg Banks
