    MJ's Brass Boppers

    New Orleans Jazz

    The San Francisco Bay Area-based MJ’s Brass Boppers are a singing and swinging brass-line ready to bring the energy to any party at a drop of a dime. As the Bay Area’s only New Orleans style brass band founded and operated  by musicians born and raised in NOLA, they pride themselves on fusing traditional NOLA standards, funk, jazz, modern pop & more with a second line twist!

    Being in existence since 2008, the musicians in MJ’s Brass Boppers are a tight group that share a passion for the music, and are constantly rehearsing to refine and present their art. They have graced the stages of various festivals, historic concert venues, community events, clubs, street corners, etc. They've opened for the likes of George Clinton & Parliament, The O'Jays, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Funky Meters, The Monophonics, George Porter Jr., Kermit Ruffins, Katdelic, & more.  Within seconds of hearing the Boppers you can tell that this is not a group that just plays a few New Orleans tunes, but rather a band that lives the music, with the second-line beat pulsing through their veins.

    With New Orleans style and California sophistication, MJ’s Brass Boppers' repertoire is versatile and vast enough to perform at any event imaginable, giving everyone a huge smile and lifted spirit!
