Miss Belle's Brass Band

French Quarter Festival

April 17, 2004

I learned something as Miss Belle's Brass Band played at The French Quarter Fest Saturday afternoon. It's very hard for a brass band to suck. Their leader's enormous energy(second line umbrella and sash included) didn't match the band's slow Dixieland strut, probably because everybody in the band was over 65. Despite this, the band was a joy to hear. When will these traditional jazz guys play a wrong note?

Good stuff, even if there wasn't much danger involved.
