The Treme Brass Band is led by snare drummer Benny Jones, Sr., who founded the group in the mid 1990s after playing with the Olympia Brass Band and leading the Dirty Dozen and Chosen Few Brass Bands.
Although their music is steeped in the roots of New Orleans jazz, this multi-generational ensemble infuses it with a fresh exuberance that mixes in elements of funk, soul, and modern jazz.
