The Jack Brass Band in Chatfield July 19


Fri, Jul 13th, 2012
Posted in Chatfield All

On Thursday, July 19, the Chatfield “Music in the Park” series will bring the sound of high energy New Orleans Jazz to park when the Jack Brass Band performs at 7:30 p.m. The concert is rain or shine- the alternative site will be the Chatfield Elementary School.

Brass bands thrive in New Orleans and all have a distinct up-tempo Mississippi Delta sound rooted in classic jazz. It’s this music, which came of the birth of jazz from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, that Mike Olander listened to in high school when he was learning to play brass music. It stuck with him as he played in bands and, eventually, when he and a few other brass musicians started the Jack Brass Band in 1999.

As the only New Orleans style brass band in Minneapolis, they are the ambassadors of the Crescent City’s brass band tradition. Formed in 1999, 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. “The band was set up to play New Orleans-style music,” said Olander, who will bring his band from the Twin Cities to play in Chatfield. “Since then we¹ve developed a deeper understanding of the music and are more deeply rooted in the New Orleans tradition.”

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. 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 Café.

“If you like your gumbo spicy and your music hot, check out the Jack Brass Band,” said Wynton Marsalis after hearing them.

The Chatfield Commercial Club will be serving up food from 6:00-7:30. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy a beautiful summer evening of great music in the Chatfield City Park.
