It is not often a live band from New Orleans is able to maintain a unique identity and go beyond playing traditional favorites. The Brass-A-Holics have been able to fuse various genres of music together and develop a style of their own. Refusing to be labeled, the talented group of eclectics are led by feeling and energy received from their fanbase. February 3rd at The House of Blues in New Orleans on Decatur Street, they will embark on a new milestone. The Brass-A-Holics will be recording their sophomore album live. “We wanted to give our audience the true essence of what we do which is performing live,” said trombonist Winston Turner.

The album is scheduled to be released during festival season in New Orleans. “We want our beautiful fans and friends to be able to bring what we do back home with them,” said trumpeter Tannon Williams.
In addition to being a great band that has performed nationally and abroad, The Brass-A-Holics are community stakeholders. Part of the proceeds from the event will benefit the New Orleans Performing and Arts Society.
