Show Info

Jambalaya Brass Band will be performing in support of their hit CD It’s a Jungle Out There at the Creole Restaurant and Music Supper Club in NYC on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 from 8:30 to 10:30 PM. The Creole Restaurant is an exquisite and unique dining and entertainment experience specializing in Creole international cuisine. At this special Jambalaya Brass Band performance, Creole will be hosting a special ‘Holiday Tasting Straight from the Bayou’ where guests will get to sample exotic foods, wines and beers, including Alligator Étouffée, Jambalaya Ya Ya (with crab meat) and Shrimp Creole over coconut rice. At Creole, along with tunes from their successful CD It’s a Jungle Out There, Jambalaya Brass Band will be performing other original and traditional favorites. The band’s foundation will be provided by Joe Scatassa on sousaphone, Kevin Raczka on snare drum, and Chauncey Yearwood on Bass Drum—and this rhythm section cooks on high octane, so be sure to wear your dancing shoes! Filling out this tasty gumbo and adding the spice on top will be the trombone of Stafford Hunter, the trumpet of Steve Gluzband, and the tenor sax of leader and founder Ric Frank, an alumnus of the Duke Ellington Orchestra. " Jambalaya could stand side-by-side with . . . any New Orleans brass band in terms of sheer exuberance and energy . . . a party from start to finish."—Henry Smith for All About Jazz The Jambalaya Brass Band is a group of seasoned musical pros from a variety of impressive previous musical settings as diverse as the Duke Ellington Orchestra to the Lounge Lizards, yet they have a knack for integrating these disparate musical experiences into one dynamic setting. They embody the history of the best American music of the last hundred years while at the same time suggesting a prescient trajectory of America’s musical future.
