Euphoria Brass Band

Euphoria Brass BandSecond-line through the French Quarter with the New Orleans sounds of Euphoria Brass Band leading the Mardi Gras parade at Gator By the Bay on Sunday, May 12.  Part New Orleans tradition and soul, part West Coast attitude and flow, Euphoria Brass Band was born in 2011, when two New Orleanian transplants to San Diego, David Bandrowski (banjo/Guitar) and Ron Bocian (snare drum) approached KSDS Jazz 88.3’s “Second Line Parade” host Drew Miller (bass drum) with the idea of creating a New Orleans-style brass band in America’s Finest City.

With a top shelf horn section—Steve Ebner on trumpet, April West on trombone, Dave Jackson on tenor sax, JP Balmat on clarinet, and Wayne Rice holding down the bottom on sousaphone—Euphoria maintains tradition and lets the Southern California vibe shine through.

So get out those white hankies in true New Orleans style, and join the parade at Gator By the Bay!
