In The Spotlight: Stooges Brass Band, The Crooked Vines

By Tate Kamish

After our second ever World Cafe Live Spotlight Artist show, we are confident that  The Crooked Vines and The Stooges Brass Band  will soon be household names for fans of funk, jazz, and so much in between.

In the spirit of Mardi Gras, The Crooked Vines started off the evening with a funk-fueled, pop set, after which one enthusiastic woman told me we “should definitely have this band back!”

The Stooges Brass Band has earned their rank as one of the elite brass bands in New Orleans. The band consistently provides a welcome blast of true New Orleans spirit, engaging audiences with their innovative blend of traditional New Orleans brass sounds, contemporary jazz and hip-hop beats.

Friday’s performance proved to be no different in that the room was flooded with energy, bringing out a diverse crowd with one thing in common: everyone came ready to dance–mirroring The Stooges’ steps the whole time.

Next up under the World Cafe Live Spotlight are local artists, Kingsley Ibeneche & Taylor Kelly on March 28th, followed by Motel Radio with Quiet Hollers on April 19th!

Although the events are FREE, we ask that you please RSVP ahead of time. We hope to see you then!
