Today in NOLA: 6.10.16


Today in NOLA, there is music to suit all tastes. So, check out some brass, Americans, swing, or funk. On this day in 1961, the famous Preservation Hall officially opened its doors. Now, more to do this Friday.

 

New Creations Brass Band (3 Keys, 9p.m.)

New Creations are the up-and-comers on the local brass scene. Yes, they can blow New Orleans classics as well as anyone out there. However, the band truly shines when they venture into their own original “new creations.” Tonight, join Royce, Kyle, & the gang for a good time.

 

Loose Marbles (Dragon’s Den, 8p.m.)

The Marbles are a large collective of musicians that built their name playing on the streets. Their performances are a mmix of trad jazz, lindy hop, and more than a little vaudeville. Alumni include Meschiya Lake.

 

Raw Oyster Cult (Chickie Wah Wah, 10p.m.)

Members of the Radiators, Papa Grows Funk, and Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes comprise this super group. Dave Malone founded the quartet, who draw from their funk, jazz, and rock-and-roll backgrounds.

 

Dave Jordan (Maple Leaf, 11p.m.)

A veteran of the roots-funk scene with Juice, Dave Jordan broke out on his own,with the Neighborhood Improvement Association (NIA). “These Old Boots,” NIA’s Anders Osborne produced debut  roars through a series of Americana, blues and country tunes. The band ahs been on a roll ever since.

 

Gov’t Majik (Blue Nile, 11p.m.)

“Dirty South Afro-Beat Arkestra.” Bassist Bru Bruser started this group on the Frenchmen scene right before the Storm. There revitalized lineup now includes David Hyman on guitar, Eduardo Tozzatto on keys, Gabriel Velasco on drums, Tedo Oliveira on percussion, Allen Dejan on alto sax and EWI, Khari Lee on tenor sax, and Antonio Gambrell on trumpet.
