Food will be served from 6:00 -7:30 by Old Tyme Café. In case of rain, the concert will be held at the Elementary School lunchroom. Lawn chairs are welcome. the concert is free and family-friendly!

The crack of the snare drum, the blat of the sousaphone, the blaring brass over it all tells you that the Jack Brass Band is an infectious machine, one that drives crowd to their feet and commands them to groove. As the only New Orleans style brass band in

Minneapolis, they are the ambassadors of the Crescent City's brass band tradition. The Jack Brass Band embraces the traditions of New Orleans jazz, at the same time adding old time blues, rock, hip-hop, pop, funk and reggae. Following this recipe, they bring to

the table an overflowing plate of greasy down- home music for your soul. "If you like your gumbo spicy and your music hot, check out the Jack Brass Band," said Wynton Marsalis after hearing them.

The Jack Brass Band has been stirring up the Minneapolis scene with celebrated performances at many different events and functions. From Aquatennial and Grand Old Days parades to festival appearances at Jazz Winnipeg and 10,000 Lakes Music Festival

and the Minnesota State Fair to performances at many clubs including the Cabooze, First Avenue, Jazzmine's, O'Gara's, 400 Bar, and Fine Line Music Cafe. The Jack Brass Band has also been in high demand for business events and functions in the area including an

NCAA Final Four appearance. In addition, the band was also featured live on KARE 11 TV for a special Mardi Gras show. The Jack Brass Band brings the party to any event with a rich tradition and a groove like no other that will make you want to get up and dance to the New Orleans sound.
