Weddings & Private Parties

Shotgun Brass Band

We are a working Traditional New Orleans-Style Jazz Band
(and, on occasion, Brass Band)

In addition to our weekly and special gig appearances and festivals, Shotgun Jazz Band is also available for Weddings or just about any private party where a traditional New Orleans atmosphere is desired or required. We generally work as a 5-6 piece sit-down jazz band for weddings, receptions, and parties, but when the occasion warrants we also love to put on our parade hats and lead the second-line as a 10-12 pc Traditional New Orleans-Style Brass Band. If you're jonesing for some funk along the lines of Rebirth Brass Band, we're probably not what you're looking for (try getting in touch with Rebirth), but if you want to dance along to some classic old New Orleans favorites ala Eureka Brass Band, then we've got you covered.

We've got a huge repertoire of New Orleans favorites, American Songbook, and old Pop Standards. We're also open to performing a special song for you, if it's something that lends itself to the New Orleans style. If you need references to top-notch wedding/party planners, venues, and/or photographers, we can help out there as well. Get in touch with the form below for a quote or to just get a conversation started!
