Red Bull Street Kings Brass Band Showdown

Saturday- October 23, 2010- this should be a no-brainer for brass band lovers.  Four of New Orleans’ finest will be competing for something tangible- a chance to record in Los Angeles.  The bands are the Free Agents, the Stooges, the To Be Continued and the Soul Rebels (pictured).  They will march and then battle it out under the Claiborne Bridge in the heart of Tremé.  Glen David Andrews will host the battle.  This is legit because check out who the judges are- Benny Jones of the Tremé Brass Band; Gary Holzenthal of Odyssey Records; Allison Reinhardt of the Roots of Music educational program; Gregory Davis of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band; DJ Mannie Fresh and Fred Johnson of the Black Men of Labor Social Aid and Pleasure Club.  It begins at 2:30 PM.
