ANNA SALE PRESENTS: Four Interviews and a Funeral

ANNA SALE PRESENTS: Four Interviews and a Funeral

The Outer Borough Brass Band briefly emerged from hibernation last weekend to serve as the house band at a live podcast event called Four Interviews And A Funeral, hosted by our old friend Anna Sale. We recorded some music for Anna’s show Death, Sex & Money a few years ago, so we were a natural choice for last weekend’s event, which was a goodbye party for DSM (which is leaving WNYC at the end of the year). The live show was reviewed by The New Yorker, with a couple of nice mentions of the band. Check it out!

We happy to announce that Outerboro Brass has been asked to collaborate with the Death, Sex & Money podcast! We are going to record the soundtrack for the “In New Orleans” series looking covering the Big Easy during the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Listen to the full series here:


As part of this project we’ve brassified the Death, Sec & Money theme song! Take a listen:

‘Smith & 9th Ward’ at Red Hook Bait & Tackle Bar!

We’re bringing the party back to Red Hook!!!

SMITH & 9th WARD is excited and proud to be hosting a super-charged night at Red Hook’s venerable BAIT & TACKLE bar.

We all know how hard Red Hook was hit by hurricane Sandy. Bait & Tackle is back on its feet, but barely.. and we want to hit them with an amazing night of music to help get things rolling again.

We’re pulling out the stops and inviting various guests to sit in and play with us. It’s going to be off the wall. Please make an effort to come out and support. This is a venue and a neighborhood we love very much – and one very close to where we all live. We hope to get it back up and running and set things off with an amazing show. See you there!!!

FREE Halloween show with Outer Borough Brass at B.B. Kings ::: ‘Meter Men’ pre-show!

The Outer Borough Brass band is going to be part of this awesome, FREE Halloween party in NYC! We are playing the free Happy Hour Meter Men pre-show from 5pm – 9pm at Lucille’s Grill! Check out the full details:

:::::: MAGIC HAT VIP BOOTHS ::::::
We’re getting very excited for our Halloween and November 1 shows with the METER MEN – featuring Leo Nocentelli, Zigaboo Modeliste & George Porter Jr of THE METERS and Page McConnell of PHISH. Now, we’re teaming up with MAGIC HAT to make it even greater.

On Wednesday, October 10 at 12 noon ET we will release a VERY, VERY LIMITED number of 4 and 6-person booths on Ticketmaster that we’re calling the MAGIC HAT VIP BOOTH EXPERIENCE. The 4-person booths will cost $50.50 per ticket, you’ll need to buy all 4. The 6-person booths will cost $47 per ticket, you’ll need to buy all 6.

You and your friends will have the only reserved seating in the venue, and our friends at Magic Hat are throwing in a bucket of 6 Magic Hat bottled beers plus some cool goodies for the table. Booths will be “first come, first seated” – so come early to get the best of the booths after you buy. VIP booth seating is all ages and, as always, we will check the IDs of those drinking.

If that wasn’t enough, Magic Hat is also giving away a really sweet guitar to 1 lucky person on Halloween. How are we going to do it? A COSTUME CONTEST!

We just brought DJ COCHON DE LAIT on board for both nights. He’ll spin the best of NOLA brass, funk & soul to make sure the party never stops! On Halloween, we’ll pick some finalists to bring on stage with DJ Cochon de Lait to take your votes for the guitar, so come early to get noticed and make those costumes great!

Halloween will be extra special as we warm things up on 10/31 with FREE ADMISSION to New Orleans Happy Hour with the OUTER BOROUGH BRASS BAND starting at 4pm in Lucille’s Grill- right here at BB King’s. Lucille’s is where we’ll also have MUN and FiKus taking the Halloween party deep into the night after METER MEN wrap things up in the big room.

There are only a few tickets left! But we might have more standing room tickets (or even booths) for sale between now and the show. Keep checking back!

Congratulations to THE METERS for their recent nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Vote for them here!: http://rockhall.com/get-involved/interact/poll/
