You are invited to the hottest new jazz scene in town! Once a month, across the entire season, The Edye will be transformed into a club scene featuring up-and-coming jazz & blues artists you’ll want to get to know. The Reverend Shawn Amos and the house band to perform at select blackbox @ the edye shows.
Drawing from New Orleans traditional Jazz, R&B, Funk & Mardi Gras, the Louisiana-rooted Los Angeles-based Mudbug Brass Band is dedicated to the "Second Line" tradition of the Crescent City. In 2011, three Louisiana natives' whose sole purpose was to entertain crowds throughout Southern California formed this 8-piece brass ensemble. Since then, Los Angeles Magazine has hailed them as a "Must-See LA Show for 2014" and a "Can't Be Missed" band for the 2015 Make Music Pasadena Festival! They've made "Best of LA" CBS: Los Angeles four years running and the "Don't Miss List" of LA Downtown News when they performed for the "Metro Presents" Concert Series.
