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.
