About
The Bon Temps Brass Band is a rowdy group of musicians from New Orleans and around the country who presently reside in NJ/NYC metro market. They aren't a band with a horn section – they're a Horn Band with an awesome rhythm section. Members of the Bon Temps Brass Band have played with, or shared billing with, the likes of Kermit Ruffins, Billy Hector, Leo Nocentelli, Zydeco-a-go-go, New Orleans Jazz Vipers, The Wild Bohemians, Norman Taylor, The Red Stick Ramblers, Ginger Coyle, Treme' Brass Band and others. They present 10 experienced professional musicians to the stage who love what they do - and it shows

The Bon Temps Brass Band delivers you to Mardi Gras and back from the first note to the last encore. They lay down some nice impov and engage audiences with their high energy presence. They play Jazz and Blues tunes from N'Wallins with a tightness that defies their “Pick Up Band” appearance. With tunes from “When the Saints Go Marching In” to “Miserlou”, they have been known to knock the shirts of their audiences. They also like delivering tunes outside the N'Wallins genre as a surprise.

Warning: Exposure to the Bon Temps Brass Band has been known to have certain side effects that include, but aren't limited to, uncontrolled dancing, feeling like an extra on the set of Girls Gone Wild, hallucinogenic sensations and a manic desire to crash the stage and sit in. If you are pregnant, think you're pregnant or plan to get pregnant you'll pass a good time with the Bon Temps Brass Band. Do not operate any heavy machinery while listening to the Bon Temps Brass Band. It is OK to drink in moderation with the Bon Temps Brass Band. Certain restrictions may apply.

The Bon Temps group played at our corporate function in Tarrytown. It was a wonderful evening, and by the time dinner was done the whole group of 80 were on their feet and in a long congo line around the room - the band too! Our evening ended on a bang! Thanks to Earl and his team, we will book them again.

The Bon Temps Brass Band was very responsive when planning for the event, and extremely easy to work with on site. Despite our outdoor event being incredibly hot and sunny, with the band was walking around the festival grounds, the entire group was incredibly pleasant and a pleasure to work with. They sounded great and added the bit of energy and fun to the event that we were looking for.

Could not have asked for more. My only regret is that we didn't have them play longer! Even with a snafu around parking and access, the guys were ready and awesome. I would do it again!

Bon Temps were amazing! They went above and beyond to make our party a great time for everyone. They're fun, easy to work with, show up when and where they're supposed to, and just play great music. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I can't imagine a better experience than I had working with Earl and the rest of the Bon Temps Brass Band. Me and a number of my friends chipped in to hire the Bon Temps Brass Band for a friend's wedding. Earl and the rest of the band were super communicative and accommodating in the period leading up to the wedding, which was great. On the day of the ceremony, they were amazing! They sounded great and added a ton to the festivities. Numerous people came up to me on the day of the wedding and told me how amazing the band was and how much they had added to the ceremony. If I have another occasion that calls for a brass band, I won't hesitate to hire these guys again!

I wish I could rate them even higher. Working with the Bon Temps Brass Band was amazing. They were unbelievably accommodating, even when we changed certain aspects of the booking. Dealing with Earl was very easy, and he had so much experience and knowledge. I was so worried we wouldn't be able to book a band for my father's memorial service on such short notice, but it was so easy and convenient, and I couldn't have imagined a better tribute than the one they helped us provide. Thank you so much!

Earl contacted me immediately to discuss my requirements and from the very start, was incredibly accommodating, enthusiastic, professional and passionate about making my event a success! I organized a demonstration march across the Brooklyn bridge and I was desperate for the mood of the day to stay positive, celebratory and fun. When the weather started to look cold and rainy, I worried the crowd would duck out early, so the "tone" and "energy" of the march was critical. The Bon Temps delivered in full- keeping everyone's spirits high and making sure the parade route was clear to all. I can never thank these guys enough or recommend them highly enough!

LOVE this band! We met Earl a year before our wedding and after much research and outrageous quotes from mediocre bands, we found Bon Temps Brass Band. My now husband and I had a very specific idea of what we wanted our wedding band to be and that was a - New Orleans Brass Band. He not only gave us that and more on our wedding day, but Earl is genuinely just a great person and his ability to understand what we wanted a year prior and making it come to life this month to was tremendous. This isn't a band pretending to bring you what they consider New Orleans music, but instead they ARE NEW ORLEANS! Earl was so easy to work with and the entire band was phenomenal.
