Because there is no dearth of immensely talented brass band musicians here in New Orleans, coming up on a good brass band battle is a relatively easy feat to accomplish. At clubs, in the street, at second lines parades... A good one is taking place Saturday night at HOB. The featured bands include The Hot 8, To Be Continued, New Birth, and The Free Agents There will be lots of second liners in the building, footwork extraordinaire to be sure, along with some seriously competitive bands getting at each other.
To get you in the mood, allow me to present what I consider the street battle to happen in 2010. Dumaine Street Gang’s annual December parade always produces a good battle between two of the several bands they hire and this one didn’t disappoint. The Hot 8 took on The Stooges just one month after the latter’s Red Bull Street Kings title victory. It was an exciting match and an explosive end to a fabulous four hour long parade.
