Mardi Gras with Jazz Mafia & Yvette Pylant
February 25 @ 8:00 PM PST
Inspired by the brass band tradition of New Orleans, Jazz Mafia’s madcap marching ensemble borrows the instrumental makeup and ebullient spirit of New Orleans second line while infusing it with a decidedly Nor Cal vibe. Musical mayhem, marching band madness, and blow-out-the-windows musical power is the hallmark of San Francisco’s most raucous and highly sought-after New Orleans/Bay Area fusion band. Based on the tried-and-true New Orleans brass ensemble, the Brass Mafia includes trombone, trumpet, saxes, drums and most importantly TUBA! Brass Mafia puts a strong emphasis on heavy backbeats, creative improvisation and a unique mix of songs and arrangements.
