New Orleans Swamp Donkeys + Soul Brass Band

New Orleans Swamp Donkeys

Possibly one of the most relevant and genuine New Orleans bands today, the Swamp Donkeys specialize in "Tradi5onal Jass," also known as Hot Jazz and Early Jazz. The band's focus on early greats like King Oliver and Louis Armstrong has created a raving, global following, but it was the Jass-adaptaton of the
theme song from Game of Thrones that resulted in a viral video. Truly, this band spans more than a century, and while they are very oTen called upon for their uUerly authen5c approach to the tradi5onal,
they're called upon equally as oTen for their brass band and progressive adapta5ons. Together with
bandleader James Williams, the band has performed mul5ple 5mes at New Orleans Jazz Fest, Edinburgh
Jazz & Blues Fes5val, North Sea Jazz Fes5val, and many other great fes5vals. They've also opened for
S5ng, Simple Minds, Johnny Hallyday, Joe Louis Walker, Rebirth Brass Band, and many others.

Soul Brass Band is exactly what it needs to be: a great New Orleans Brass Band steeped in tradiGon that also plays the perfect party. Day aJer day in New Orleans, this all-star lineup is called upon for its top-flight tradiGonal Brass Band repertoire and Second line Parades; and then night aJer night, they’re called upon again for frontman Derrick Freeman’s signature brass band infusion of classic Soul. In Summer 2016 the band rocked the stage and the street at Ascona Jazz FesGval in Switzerland and Fringe Jazz Fest in Denmark, and they’re coming back to Europe for a full tour in Summer 2017.
