Broadway Oyster Bar, home to monthly gigs from the Funky Butt Brass Band and frequent host to various New Orleans acts, has booked two more brass bands for gigs early next year.
New Orleans' Stooges Brass Band (pictured) will return to St. Louis to play the BOB on Thursday, January 15, while the No BS! Brass Band , an eleven-piece group based in Richmond, VA, will perform on Sunday, February 8.
The Stooges have played in St. Louis before, most recently in August of this year at the Oyster Bar, but as best as we can tell, this will be the first local show for the No BS! Brass Band. (We'll have videos of both groups in StLJN's winter/spring 2015 jazz preview, which starts tomorrow.)
Admission for the Stooges Brass Band will be $10 at the door. There's no ticket price for the No BS! Brass Band listed yet on either the Broadway Oyster Bar site or the Facebook page for the event, but given the BOB's usual pricing, it likely will be the same or similar.
