- 600 Carondelet St
Hasan “HaSizzle” Matthews, New Orleans born and bred “King Of Bounce” is pioneering his way through the culture of bounce music. A well-known entertainer in his hometown and far beyond national limits in places like France and Germany, HaSizzle has blessed each region of the globe with his always-ready scatting, clever rhymes, and larger-than-life-stage charm.
Since 2010, the Brass-A-Holics have been taking their unique sound around the world. Steeped in 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. 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.
Six of Saturns is our annual festival celebration of music, visions and the collaborative spirit of New Orleans. For two weeks each spring, we gather to revel in the beats of the bayou, its musical legacy and commune with stage legends, big band street performers, activists and artists of every feather.
The name Six of Saturns is a mystical tarot to honor Sun Ra’s Trip to Saturn, our numerical place in the universe (600 Carondelet) and the many cosmic connections of Jazz to this land. It’s a fortune that always ends with “yes.”
Six of Saturns happens once a year, so make sure you catch next year’s, and to stay up to date with all Ace New Orleans happenings, subscribe to the A-List.
