The Bon Temps Brass Band is a rowdy group of musicians from New Orleans and around the country who presently reside in NJ/NYC metro market. They aren't a band with a horn section – they're a Horn Band with an awesome rhythm section. Members of the Bon Temps Brass Band have played with, or shared billing with, the likes of Kermit Ruffins, Billy Hector, Leo Nocentelli, Zydeco-a-go-go, New Orleans Jazz Vipers, The Wild Bohemians, Norman Taylor, The Red Stick Ramblers, Ginger Coyle, Treme' Brass Band and others. They present 10 experienced professional musicians to the stage who love what they do - and it shows

The Bon Temps Brass Band delivers you to Mardi Gras and back from the first note to the last encore. They lay down some nice impov and engage audiences with their high energy presence. They play Jazz and Blues tunes from N'Wallins with a tightness that defies their “Pick Up Band” appearance. With tunes from “When the Saints Go Marching In” to “Miserlou”, they have been known to knock the shirts of their audiences. They also like delivering tunes outside the N'Wallins genre as a surprise.

Warning: Exposure to the Bon Temps Brass Band has been known to have certain side effects that include, but aren't limited to, uncontrolled dancing, feeling like an extra on the set of Girls Gone Wild, hallucinogenic sensations and a manic desire to crash the stage and sit in. If you are pregnant, think you're pregnant or plan to get pregnant you'll pass a good time with the Bon Temps Brass Band. Do not operate any heavy machinery while listening to the Bon Temps Brass Band. It is OK to drink in moderation with the Bon Temps Brass Band. Certain restrictions may apply.

Earl contacted me immediately to discuss my requirements and from the very start, was incredibly accommodating, enthusiastic, professional and passionate about making my event a success! I organized a demonstration march across the Brooklyn bridge and I was desperate for the mood of the day to stay positive, celebratory and fun. When the weather started to look cold and rainy, I worried the crowd would duck out early, so the "tone" and "energy" of the march was critical. The Bon Temps delivered in full- keeping everyone's spirits high and making sure the parade route was clear to all. I can never thank these guys enough or recommend them highly enough!

LOVE this band! We met Earl a year before our wedding and after much research and outrageous quotes from mediocre bands, we found Bon Temps Brass Band. My now husband and I had a very specific idea of what we wanted our wedding band to be and that was a - New Orleans Brass Band. He not only gave us that and more on our wedding day, but Earl is genuinely just a great person and his ability to understand what we wanted a year prior and making it come to life this month to was tremendous. This isn't a band pretending to bring you what they consider New Orleans music, but instead they ARE NEW ORLEANS! Earl was so easy to work with and the entire band was phenomenal.

The Bon Temps were extremely accommodating. They are obviously familiar with working with a 501(c)3 and the special needs involved. The band lead us on an incredible 2nd line jazz funeral march; it was the perfect balance between being uplifting and respectful. It was very moving. It felt like we were in New Orleans! Great band...great gig!!
