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 Brass Band to develop an extraordinary performance history, including sharing the stage with Ray Charles, Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), Jessica Simpson, Jadakiss.
The Stooges Brass Band has been an incubator for many of New Orleans' greatest artists. Past members have included Troy 'Trombone Shorty' Andrews, 'Big Sam' Williams, Big D, and Andrew Baham, among others.
