Atlanta Brass Connection

• ATL BRASS CONNECTION is Georgia's authentic New Orleans style "second line" band, bringing the funky street jazz sound to old school classics, traditional jazz and originals. You can’t miss Jerome Kimble, the big man on tuba/sousaphone, trumpeters Anthony G. Bailey & Grammy winner Curtis Watson (of Buckwheat Zydeco) pure tones lead the brass section, the ladies of the trombone section Chenitha Reddick and G.Mosley Riggins bring that fire making the jam hot, and the smooth saxophones of Melvin Byrd & Carl Dixon fill out the harmony with soul. Last but not least founder, Kenito Murray gets the dancers on their feet with the rolling parade beat. Kenito began playing with New Orleans musicians in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, filling a void in Atlanta for a traditional New Orleans funeral march band, when many of the Louisiana musicians returned home, Kenito began the quest to create an Atlanta second line band to expose the locals to the irresistible carnival beat of NOLA street parade jazz. Make no mistake this is music for the dancers, so get ready to party, Mardi Gras style with the ATL BRASS CONNECTION!
