Brass Mafia

Inspired by the brass band tradition of New Orleans, Jazz Mafia’s madcap marching ensemble borrows the instrumental makeup and ebullient spirit of the Crescent City second line while infusing it with a decidedly Nor Cal vibe.


Made up of some of the finest brass players on the West Coast, the band has been a mainstay of San Francisco’s Fat Tuesday parade for nearly a decade and has collaborated with artists ranging from rapper Lyrics Born and new wave pop icon Thomas Dolby to bluegrass master Peter Rowan and alt-country singer and songwriter Nicki Bluhm. Performances typically balance imaginative covers from the likes of The Rolling Stones and Kraftwerk with dance-inspiring originals that cover brass influences from Balkan, Afrobeat, and Afro-Cuban traditions to, of course, New Orleans.
