New Orleans food, beverages, a raffle, and other fun activities will also be on hand. Once you are there you will feel like you stepped on to Bourbon Street!
The All Star SUPERband is Milwaukee’s best big band! Members are professional musicians, playing not only in Milwaukee venues, but in music scenes all over the country. Some of the musicians are instructors in local high schools, colleges and professional music academies. Others earn their living in other occupations. The one thing they all have in common is their love of big band jazz, improvisation, and the challenge of reading and performing difficult arrangements. The band is the real deal!
Big Style Brass Band is a 9 piece group performing music rooted in the New Orleans tradition. BSBB hails from Milwaukee and is well-known throughout Southeastern Wisconsin
and within Wisconsin’s burgeoning New Orleans brass band scene. They play a mix of traditional, modern New Orleans and pop tunes.
