The Stooges Brass Band (@StoogesBB) at Spice Bar & Grill in the 7th Ward

The Stooges Brass Band is another of the new and talented young brass bands on the New Orleans scene, and one that I had become familiar with through their weekly Thursday night gig at the Hi-Ho Lounge, where I once witnessed an epic battle between them and the TBC Brass Band. Unfortunately, the Hi-Ho came under new management, and the Stooges gig was a thing of the past, but fortunately a new club called Spice Bar & Grill has opened on North Broad Street, featuring the Stooges Brass Band every Thursday night. The club is big and spacious, and has none of the hole-in-the-wall ambiance of the Hi-Ho, but it is a neighborhood bar, and draws the kind of audience that loves brass band music and buck jumping, and that’s what went on all evening long.
