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!:

We’re excited to be part of the recently announced POPs Ball @ the Hiro Ballroom!


In both a nod to the legendary Mardi Gras party MOMs Ball in New Orleans, which always featured the recently parted Radiators, and an homage to Louis Armstrong who was lovingly nicknamed “Pops”; CEG & introduce the first annual POPs Ball.

It was only fitting to have Radiators front-man Dave Malone (guitar, vocals) be a part of the inaugural POPs Ball party, joining Anders Osborne and his band which features Carl Dufrene and Eric Bolivar. “Big Sam” Williams (trombone, vocals) of Big Sam’s Funky Nation and John “Papa” Gros (B3, vocals) of Papa Grows Funk will join the band too, as will DJ Logic, a frequent traveler to and performer in the Crescent City.

The Outer Borough Brass Band, a collective of musicians delivering funk, traditional jazz and New Orleans second line grooves to the boroughs of NYC, will open the show.

While POPs Ball is nearly a half a year from Mardi Gras, fans can expect the vibe of a Mardi Gras party.

Anders Osborne (& band) with

  • Dave Malone (The Radiators)
  • “Big Sam” Williams (Big Sam’s Funky Nation)
  • John “Papa” Gros (Papa Grows Funk)
  • DJ Logic + spec guests
