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.


Kat Wright and The Indomitable Soul Band
Kat Wright and The Indomitable Soul Band
Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band are on a mission to fill you with music that aims right for the heart and moves your soul without overlooking your ass … and they won't be defeated in their quest.It all starts with the voice of Kat Wright, which proves immediately enchanting to any listener. It's delicate yet powerful; gritty yet highly emotive; sultry and dynamic. It promises and delivers a connection with something outside of yourself. Her style shares a timeless quality with some of history's greatest singers (think young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse), while remaining something authentic you haven't heard ever before. These days, as we cycle through scores of new groups looking for a little of that old school magic we're constantly confronted with watered down throwback acts and impersonators of genuine soul. Kat Wright's powerhouse vocals diagnose this modern day ailment and heal it on the spot.

The Indomitable Soul Band's roots draw heavily from all American music to forge a sound that is all their own. Blending Memphis soul and new school RnB with a level of improvisation that more than a few Vermont based bands have been known for, this 7 piece accompaniment is the perfect compliment to Kat's captivating, genuine vibe. Composed of a rock solid core and a powerful horn section, the ISB keeps you moving and lays it all on the line at every show.

Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band have earned a reputation in Burlington, VT for packing every house they play and always sending people out feeling better than when they walked in. With their first EP in hand (Introducing...), their quest is breaking new ground and they're aiming right for you.
