The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage in Santa Monica presents The Mudbug Brass Band playing blackbox @ the edye on Friday, March 1 at 8:00pm. Drawing from New Orleans traditional Jazz, R&B, Funk & Mardi Gras, the Louisiana-rooted Los Angeles-based The Mudbug Brass Band is dedicated to the “Second Line” tradition of the Crescent City.
In 2011, three Louisiana natives’ whose sole purpose was to entertain crowds throughout Southern California formed this 8-piece brass ensemble. Since then, Los Angeles Magazine has hailed them as a “Must-See LA Show for 2014” and a “Can’t Be Missed” band for the 2015 Make Music Pasadena Festival! They’ve made “Best of LA” CBS: Los Angeles four years running and the “Don’t Miss List” of LA Downtown News when they performed for the “Metro Presents” Concert Series.
The Mudbug Brass Band is followed in the blackbox @ the edye series by Jennifer Keith Quintet (April 5) and Gabrielito (May 3).
Jazz & Blues is made possible by a generous gift from Richard and Lisa Kendall. blackbox @ the edye at The Broad Stage is made possible in part by a generous gift from Ann Petersen.
