HQ Brassband – A Night In New Orleans (DK)
New Orleans moves to Aarhus
HQ Brassband is a New Orleans brass band consisting of some of Aarhus' finest musicians.
They have joined together to celebrate the music that adorns the nightlife of New Orleans at the small bars, venues and, not least, in the streets and alleys at the Mardi Grass and more.
The last 2 years, there has been a resurgence of New Orleans music in Aarhus, and HQ's premises have been filled with dance-happy guests who have taken a liking to the festive music.
The musical style ranges wide and includes everything from sweaty funk and traditional brass band jazz to second line with Caribbean undertones.
