Thank you guys so much. These fellas made my night great and the attendees loved every minute of the Birthday Celebration. I would definitely recommend WYA for any event or occasion. For a big college football weekend, I wanted to plan an event to kick the weekend and Friday night off right Where Y'At did not disappoint! The second line was the talk of the trip and we had a great time. The guys had great energy and really got the crowd going! They were amazing and made for an incredible time.
This band was everything I wanted in a Second Line Band and more. The band leaders communicated promptly leading up to the event and the day of were extremely professional. To make up for the missing drummer, the band leader invited us to their next gig the following night and would invite us on stage and purchase drinks. All the guys were extremely talented and super nice. Everyone was very impressed! I definitely will be booking them again for future events.
We had over guests at our wedding ceremony this weekend. Considering that they had never experienced anything like when the band walked in they said that was the best part of the wedding. The band was absolutely wonderful. I threw my brother a second line parade for his bachelor party and these guys crushed it. Highly recommended! They are good sounding band, but felll short in timeliness by being late for a surprise entrance to my party. This was planned months in advance and was emphasized how important this surprise entrance.
They were to dress in all black as their photo, that. Maybe this was an isolated incident for them and may never happen again. They gave a good performance overall. Although you may be nervous about booking a band site unseen, this band was the real deal. Pretty much on-time, energetic, and professional. They knew just what to do to make our reunion welcome night a success. This band and experience blew my friends away! Band was very responsive, easy to work with and helped plan event. Great value on price.
Highly recommend! Everyone at our reception complemented the band on their sound and how they stole the show. Justin was very easy to work with and provided a great experience for the 2nd line!!!
All of my guests kept commenting on how great they were!!! On time. Our wedding and parade was awesome with help from this amazing band! Justin and the Krewe were Album). We did a second line in the bywater. Rain threatened our original location and the guys were on standby willing to move locations if we needed it. The skies cleared for them. They brought the heat. The "Where you at" band was great to work with and exceed our expectation with their talent.

So they can see that we're versatile and also that they could see and feel it and feel the experience because every song and every chant or every song that we, you know, that have some lyrics to it, they have meaning to it, and that's what we've been striving to do.
You know, if we stay hard and they sold, if anything - if nothing else. And at the center of that was culture and - looking at how we use culture to bring folks back together again.
Part of what we've tried to do with the band is that, you know, you have a platform from the stage to speak to people what's unique about New Orleans and Album) brass bands because you have the streets, so the music isn't disconnected from the street. And so, generally, with jazz and other forms of music, it's an artifact. So you buy CD, you know, you look at it on television, but it's not up close and personal and right around the corner from your house.
And so the musicians are people you can touch and feel and be in a relationship with. MOSES: Part of what we New Orleans (After The City) - Hot 8 Brass Band - The Life & Times Of. (CD to do is we want people in Boston, we want people in Oakland, people in Texas, people in Chicago to see a connection between what the band is doing as they're rebuilding as a band, as the city is rebuilding as a city, and the issues that they're struggling with on a personal level and at a community level.
And so the issues around quality education are present in New Orleans in a dramatic way, but those are also present in any major urban city in the country - issues around health, issues around, Album), kind of, your relationship to your environment, how it impacts you, how you impact it -all of that is present in New Orleans.
So how can we bring that to people and get them to see how the band is dealing with this, how folks in New Orleans are dealing with this, and how we need to be in a relationship with each other even if Album) not in this particular area around struggling with some of these issues that we all face. What are those - what are those tools? What are those facets of that culture or the music that can be used to rebuild? And, you know, because when we play our slow dirge, you can feel them.
You know, everybody kind of calm down and, you know, we take them to there. You know, to that - they capture that moment of the dirge, you know, and everything that it means. And when we're playing "Closer Walk" or anything like that, I mean, and we go from that to an upbeat, uplifting song and they could feel it, you know, and they react to it. So, I mean, when you see that power like that and the music and you have people doing that, you know that that's a tool.
I got to go see these guys; it was really, really fun. So they're traveling around to middle schools and high schools, talking to kids about music and the history of New Orleans' music. But also, they're talking about their stories - what happened to them when they were displaced. And this is the stuff the kids really wanted to know about. You know, we were in this assembly hall and the kids weree getting up and jamming and dancing and totally enjoying the music. But then, when it was time for the Q and A, they really wanted to hear these guys talk about how the storm affected their lives and their family.
There were, like, did you lose all your instruments? Like, yeah, it was tough, you know? So it was really fun to see them interacting with the kids because, so clearly, they're more comfortable being musicians…. MARTIN: …and all of a sudden, they're thrust into this spotlight where they're New Orleans (After The City) - Hot 8 Brass Band - The Life & Times Of.
(CD - they're ambassadors, they're educators, and they're still trying to find their footing in that way. But it was fun to watch them tell their stories and talk about this music that's clearly so important to them. The trumpet player, Raymond Williams, was one of the founding members of this band, and we've got a clip of him talking to the kids. All I wanted to do was play the trumpet, just get better at it, and just practice and practice, but I never realized how important it is to know the history - just like knowing the history of yourself.
It's very important for you to know who you are and where you came from.
