Dr. Michael White Quartet

Dr. Michael White is an accomplished, multi-faceted New Orleans-based clarinetist, bandleader, composer, musicologist, jazz historian, and educator widely regarded as one of the leading authorities and culture-bearers of traditional New Orleans jazz music. With a career now spanning over three decades, Michael White continues to grow his musical legacy as one of the authoritative figures on New Orleans Jazz Music, and one of the finest clarinetists to walk the streets of the crescent city.

Rebirth Brass Band

Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they’ve also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound.

DJ Brice Nice

Brice Nice is a radio and club DJ, music historian, and vinyl junkie. He hosts a weekly Block Party radio show on WWOZ New Orleans 90.7. Nice has rocked parties in just about every venue in New Orleans such as House of Blues, Metro, Republic, and Ampersand. His taste is respected internationally and his musical versatility is unmatched in the Crescent City. From all 45 sets of New Orleans and Gulf Coast R&B, Soul, Garage, Funk, Disco, rocking all original 12″ singles to digital DJing, Brice is not limited to any one genre and can rock any crowd.
