The weather is warming up and that means it is time for the Stuart's Opera House FREE SUMMER CONCERT SERIES! This year we are moving the action to line up with Final Fridays on the Square, the monthly gallery hop and art event here in Nelsonville. So come down and check out some great art and hear some FREE music too. The Stooges Brass Band has been one of the elite brass bands in New Orleans but only recently are receiving the accolades and well deserved recognition of their importance to the music scene of New Orleans. Since 1996, their high energy show on the stage and in the streets has engaged audiences with their innovative blend of traditional New Orleans brass sounds and contemporary hip-hop beats. The Stooges Brass Band has gained notoriety across the USA and the world as a full-blown musical party whether leading a second-line parade or performing their spirited stage show.
The Stooges Brass Band are undeniably one of the hardest working bands out of New Orleans and their dedication to their craft has made an impact. In October 2010, The Stooges Brass Band victoriously battled in the finals for the title of Red Bull Street Kings under the iconic Claiborne Bridge in NOLA. Along with this auspicious title, The Stooges Brass Band won an all-expense paid trip for a recording and mentorship session with a producer in the Red Bull Studios in California. In April 2011, the Stooges Brass Band were awarded the title of "Best Contemporary Brass Band" at the Big Easy Music Awards. Whether they're second-lining in the back streets of the Crescent City, or performing in clubs across the country, the Stooges Brass Band immerse crowds in a high-energy, cut loose vibe that's contemporary yet deeply rooted in the culturally rich musical legacy of city of New Orleans.
THIS IS A FREE CONCERT, TAKING PLACE IN THE STUART'S OPERA HOUSE PARKING LOT.
In case of bad weather, the show will move inside the theater.
