Six Of Saturns | Flagboy Giz & Brass-A-Holics

  • 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm | Sunday May 05, 2024
  • Three Keys | Ace Hotel New Orleans
  • 600 Carondelet St

The planets have aligned for our finale with two times the star power. For this year’s closure, local icon Flagboy Giz shares the stage with the legendary Brass-A-Holics for an unforgettable show on May 5.

Flagboy Giz is a musician, cultural performer, beadworker, producer, and MC from New Orleans, Louisiana. For nearly a decade, he has been a member of the historic Wild Tchoupitoulas Black Masking Indians, a tribe of culture bearers whose music was made famous in the 1970s by the legendary funk groups The Meters as well as The Neville Brothers. His music is informed and inspired by the traditions of Mardi Gras Indian music, a uniquely New Orleans heritage combining elements of West African rhythms, funk music, chanting, and other Black folk music influences.

 

Since 2010, the Brass-a-Holics have been taking their unique sound around the world. Steeped into the deep musical culture of New Orleans, the band brings a heavy dose of go-go funk to the New Orleans brass sound. In a blending of musical cultures stemming from cities separated by more than a thousand miles, a Brass-a-Holics live show takes the New Orleans brass band culture and infuses it with the electricity of Washington D.C.’s go-go. The resulting sound is both captivating and unique. The band consists of core New Orleans brass elements- trumpet, trombone, saxophone- and adds a full drum set, percussion, keyboard, bass and electric guitar, giving the band limitless options to explore new sonic territory. Whether performing their original music or using the framework of hit pop songs as springboards for fiery improvisations, there is something in the set to appeal to every music fan. Once the music starts, the demographics blend, and a brand-new experience is created- one that leaves one-of-a-kind memories that live on long after the last note.

Jazz Brunch in Josephine Estelle at Josephine Estelle

We think a good brunch should go something like a jazz quartet. Pancakes ground you like the walking bass, egg yolks coat your palate like the lush sounds of a grand piano, coffee adds some mid-morning rhythm, and the citrus brightens the mood like a sting from a horn. Josephine Estelle offers weekend brunch from 8am to 3pm with Or Shovaly creating a soundscape to make your morning that much better.
