“New Basics Brass Band was absolutely amazing with the students in our area. From the in-school performances, to the workshop with local high school students. They knew exactly how to interact with the students and at every level and provide them with an appreciation for the style of music NBBB specializes in. The encouragement to the high school students to step outside their comfort zone and explore improve was invaluable. Watching NBBB perform side-by-side with area students was PURE MAGIC!”

"New Basics Brass Band brings the perfect blend of high-energy excitement and musical authenticity to any educational situation. Few bands are able to convey the spirit of New Orleans with a refreshing modern twist like NBBB! I would highly recommend them for in-school assemblies, workshops and any other setting that allows them to share the magic of American music with students and adults alike."
