The Bayou City Brass Band combines the influences of jazz, r&b and hip-hop music into one unique sound. When the Bayou City Brass Band was established, we became Houston's first and in many ways mirrored a tradition established over 100 years ago by New Orleans' Olympia Brass Band. Bayou City Brass is expected to play a similar role, but we are not your "traditional" brass band. We pay homage to the traditional New Orleans (second-line) style in many of our shows, but that doesn't define us. We are true to the spirit of our predecessors, but as music has evolved through 100+ years of varying influences, so has the music of the Bayou City Brass Band.
We prove through each and every performance that we have a voice steeped in history. Our shows are dynamic and vibrant in every sense of what music should be about, while also having a style that can only be found in the great state of Texas!
