The Mudbug Brass Band at the Skirball

July 16, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-7

Louisiana-rooted, LA-based Mudbug Brass Band, hailed by Los Angeles magazine as one of five bands that “can’t be missed.”

Drawing from New Orleans traditional jazz, R&B, and funk, the three Louisiana natives who formed this eight-piece brass ensemble in 2011 have spread the musical culture and traditions of New Orleans to Southern California for years. Since the band’s conception, the band has spent their Sunday afternoons playing residencies at restaurants and their Friday nights playing taverns and saloons. You may have also seen them lead the Venice Beach Mardi Gras Parade every year since 2011 or wow audiences at the grand reopening of UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion or the seventy-fifth anniversary of  Union Station. In 2014, the Los Angeles Times featured them as they led the “Walk the Talk” parade through Skid Row in downtown LA for the Los Angeles Poverty Department.

Mudbug’s first original song, “Are You with Me,” is an anthem joining everyone together with a call-and-response vocal and funky New Orleans backbeat. Be there when they play this and other lively compositions in the amphitheater.

Two show times: noon & 2 pm

Admission – Included with Museum admission
