Who We Are

The Bayou City Brass Band combines the influences of jazz, r&b and hip-hop music into one unique sound. The Bayou City Brass Band in many ways mirrors the tradition established over 100 years ago by New Orleans’ Olympia 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.
