Euphoria Brass Band Brings West Coast Second Line Jazz To KPBS
If you’ve ever been to New Orleans, you’ve probably witnessed the brassy bayou sounds of bands marching down cobblestone streets to celebrate the life and home-going of someone beloved.
On Thursday on Midday Edition, instead of the cobblestone streets, we’re bringing the New Orleans tradition to you from the KPBS studio.
After seven consecutive nominations, Euphoria Brass Band won the San Diego Music Award for Best Jazz in 2019. As part of the Midday Edition Summer music series the San Diego band stopped by the studio to share their special brand of funky West Coast “second line” jazz and talk about how they started.
