The Booty Boppin' Brass Band plays high energy New Orleans brass band music, Halifax style: 2nd line drums, driving funk, hip hop and Latin beats and, of course, the Blues! It's all about impossible horn arrangements, a sousaphone that doesn't stop and fun vocals. Lots of audience participation with folk singing, stomping and playing percussion on stage with the Booties. And there's even some cool choreography.
A live party that will be sure to get you moving and grooving on the Halifax Waterfront.
