The Stooges Brass Band has been a premier New Orleans Brass Band since 1996. While appealing to the emotions of traditional jazz, the brass band uses their hip-hop influence to create a new sound. Their innovative incorporation of hip-hop sound to the traditional styling of New Orleans brass band music has set them apart from other New Orleans bands and allowed The Stooges to develop an extraordinary performance history, including performances with Jessica Simpson and Jadakiss.
The Stooges have toured nationally and internationally in Asia, Europe, and South America. In October, the Stooges Brass Band won the title of Red Bull Street Kings, beating out The Free Agents, To Be Continued, and The Soul Rebels brass bands to win an all-expense paid trip for a three-day recording and mentorship session with a producer in the Red Bull Studios in California.
