Crossing New Boundaries in Music and Preserving Culture. In Uptown New Orleans, where the Mississippi River bends an elaborate patchwork of cultures, races, and, music come together like a well-made gumbo. New Orleans Suspects call this area home. Big Chief Juan Pardo and the Golden Comanche Indian Tribe also hail from Uptown and are upholding the proud cultural traditions of Mardi Gras Indian Culture, while bringing funk infused Caribbean rhythms to the masses. New Orleans Suspects Tribal Gold is a collaboration between these two powerhouses. Merging the intense audio sounds of the Suspects with the heavy tribal drum based, funk infused visual parade that Mardi Gras Indians bring.


Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they’ve also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.” In the wake of the sometimes- stringent competition amongst New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.
