Boom Unit Brass Band brings the traditional New Orleans Second Line into modern times, fusing it with funk, rock, and pop music. You’ll hear brass band standards like “Li’l Liza Jane” and “Joe Avery’s Blues” alongside “You Move Ya Lose” and “Uptown Funk!” as well as some original material written by members of the band. Everyone sings! Everyone plays horns! Everyone pounds drums! Everyone MARCHES!!!

Surf rock meets classic rock. High energy. Deep grooves. Gnarly solos. Hip staging. Full tilt! Rollin Dynamite hits the stage with deep grooves from a powerful rhythm section comprised of Mike O’Neal on bass and Eric Mrozkowski on drums. O’Neal is flipped upside down and backwards and pulls his lines from deep in the pocket while Mroz’s grooves are as smooth as the perfect wave. Louis Landry, keys, guitar and vocals, is the wax to our boards. His solid rhythm, carving solos and swooning vocals will have you hanging ten. Slashing and shredding through each song, guitarist Luis Rodriguez explodes out of the barrel with high voltage leads and gnarly rhythm.
