Why hire Lagniappe Brass Band?
We are New Orleans’s newest and up and coming brass band. Lagniappe is a French word meaning something extra or in addition to or including other things. We are here to give you the best brass music – and a little extra.
The sticky, fried catfish scented air is the funk that New Orleans’ own Lagniappe Brass Band breathes. Lagniappe Brass Band hits hard with its up-tempo, high energy funk that makes asses shake and sweat glands sweat. The group has logging 250 shows a year nationally and internationally. From small and authentic smoke filled and beer tinged New Orleans bars, to festivals for audiences of thousands – Lagniappe’s six horn players bring an undeniable, massive wall of sound that fills your ears and the air above the streets. Below this is the infectious Afro-Cuban bass drum pulse that alone is the foundation for your dancing. The term, “lagniappe” is a Cajun French term defined as “something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure.” Mark Twain writes about the word as “a word worth traveling to New Orleans to get”. Come to New Orleans and see the band or catch them around the world – either way they will give you a ‘lil extra.
