New Creations Brass Band

Ryan McCarthy

Straight outta Louisiana, New Creations Brass Band plays Second Line music and New Orleans’ jazz, invoking the spirit of The Big Easy. This young group of musicians — brought together by their love for making great, contemporary Second Line music, — have studied, played with, and lived around several greats like Shanon Powell, Shamarr Allen, and Trombone Shorty. Active in their musical community, these Sons of New Orleans have brought their sound and passion to other regions of the United States. They’re regulars on the HONK! Street Band festival circuit, performing in Boston, Providence, New York City, and Seattle. They offer music clinics to school children when they travel, introducing kids to the musical legacy of New Orleans, ensuring its continuation and endurance. Together and separately, New Creations’ members play for local Mardi Gras Krewes, serenade wedding parades, busk on Bourbon and Frenchmen Streets, participate in jazz funerals, liven up sports’ teams celebrations, and appear in the annual Red Bull sponsored BMX Second Line Parade (2017 and 2018).
