About

Boom Unit Brass Band is the Triangle’s local version of a New Orleans Second Line jazz band.  Their powerful sound, which fits somewhere between traditional Second Line bands and the ultra-tight Youngbloods Brass Band, comes from 9 of the baddest horn players and the funkiest drummer we could find.

They are fully loaded and capable of going straight from the parade to the stage.  Our repertoire includes traditional brass band favorites like “Bourbon Street Parade” and “Li’l Liza Jane”, modern brass band hits like “You Move Ya Lose” and “My Feet Can’t Fail Me Now”, pop covers of “Sweet Dreams” and “Say It Ain’t So”, and almost a dirty dozen of our own originals.
