Leaving Jazz Fest yesterday, I ran into one of my favorite bands The Baby Boyz playing at Stallings Park. Ive been watching these proteges of trombonist Glen David Andrews for two years now and Im increasingly impressed by their talent and stage presence. Well, what are the options really when you come from a musical legacy like the Andrews Family and the Treme 6th Ward? You kinda have to be awesome - or else.
You can check out The Baby Boyz today/Saturday at Jazz Fest at 1:40pm playing for the Westbank Steppers, Valley of Silent Men, And Pigeon Town Steppers Second Line. Theyll also be performing later today and Sunday at Stallings Park starting around 6pm to send the euphoria-weary Jazz Festers on home in that Only In New Orleans brass band style.
