At D.B.A., along with tunes from their popular CD, Jambalaya Brass Band will be performing other original and traditional favorites. The band at D.B.A., native New Orleans players that also appear on It's a Jungle Out There, will feature the foundation of Herbert McCarver on sousaphone, Ajay Mallery (Rebirth Brass Band) on snare drum, and Terrence Andrews (Hot 8 Brass Band) on bass drum-and this rhythm section cooks on high octane, so be sure to wear your dancing shoes! Filling out this tasty gumbo and adding the spice on top will be the trombone of Charles Joseph (Dirty Dozen Brass Band), the trumpet of Kevin Louis (Preservation Hall Jazz Band), and the tenor sax of leader and founder Ric Frank, an alumnus of the Duke Ellington Orchestra.
". . . sheer exuberance and energy . . . a party from start to finish."-Henry Smith for All About Jazz
The Jambalaya Brass Band is a group of seasoned musical pros from a variety of impressive previous musical settings as diverse as the Duke Ellington Orchestra to the Lounge Lizards, yet they have a knack for integrating these disparate musical experiences into one dynamic setting. They embody the history of the best American music of the last hundred years while at the same time suggesting a prescient trajectory of America's musical future. Some of the Band's arrangements are traditional, and many are original and innovative while the playing is precise and spontaneous at the same time, yet all is conceived with imagination and wit. After-all, this is New Orleans party music and Jambalaya Brass Band is a joyous and exuberant musical celebration as they have proven on many occasions. From the Warner Bros. film Where the Wild Things Are, to the Britney Spears Super Bowl Party in New York City at Planet Hollywood, to the half-time Mardi Gras show for the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden this group of talented musical revelers has literally made the party.
It's a Jungle Out There is a rollicking musical journey and a great celebration of American music while at the same time an appetizing preview of what this group is capable of live. Putting on It's a Jungle Out There at a party is a sure bet, but seeing these talented players live really brings the party directly home to you.
