New Stream Brass Band is the first-ever Singapore-based New Orleans style brass band that blends Jazz, Funk, Latin and Hip-Hop styles with traditional New Orleans brass sounds. The band style is most famous for “Second Line” brass band parades, a cultural heritage of New Orleans.
The band was founded in June 2014 by Eriko (Trombone) and Yohei (Snare drum), who have been to New Orleans frequently, where they played with local musicians for gigs, street performances and Second Lines.
The band pursues an authentic New Orleans sound, adding tastes of steady chart hits from artists like Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.
It is a unique band form, consisting of separate Bass and Snare drums, Washboard, Sousaphone as bass, and lead horns – Trumpet, Trombone and Saxophone- that allow for an unplugged yet vibrant sound. The New Stream Brass Band excels at roving performance as well as ceremonial functions such as weddings, birthdays and launches. Add some New Orleans spice to your next event!
