MJ’S BRASS BOPPERS

Featuring some of the top vocalists from the Bay Area and Attending a MJ’s Brass Boppers shows is the next best thing to following a brass band down New Orleans’ famed Claiborne Ave. The swinging and singing brass-line is the Bay Area’s only New Orleans-style brass band whose founding members were born and raised in New Orleans itself.

This group’s sound has been meticulously formed over years of practicing and experimenting together, fusing classic high energy NOLA performance with funk, jazz, modern pop, with a second line rhythm and twist.

Since 2008, the tight knit musicians have written, practiced, and performed together at festivals, community events, nightclubs, and street corners around the Bay Area and beyond. They’ve opened for a variety of acts, including George Clinton & Funkadelic, The O’Jays, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Funky Meters, George Porter Jr., Kermit Ruffins, Glenn David Andrews, Zigaboo Modeliste, Monophonics, California Honeydrops, Dr. Michael White, Katdelic, and many more.

Together, these musicians come together as the versatile MJ’s Brass Boppers, offering a taste of authentic New Orleans style with a West Coast flair.
