      Bio

      The Treme Brass Band is a marching brass band from New Orleans, Louisiana led by snare drummer Benny Jones, Sr. The band, which plays traditional New Orleans brass band music, features a shifting lineup that has included trumpeters Kermit Ruffins and James Andrews, tenor saxophonists Elliot Callier and Frederick Sheppard, trombonist Corey Henry, and sousaphonist Kirk Joseph. Lionel Batiste appears consistently on the bass drum. They have released two albums, Gimme My Money Back on Arhoolie Records and I Got a Big, Fat Woman on the Sounds of New Orleans label. The band takes its name from New Orleans' Treme neighborhood

      The Treme neighborhood, on the outskirts of the French Quarter, was the birthplace and home of many generations of New Orleans's finest jazz musicians. Central to that tradition are the parade bands that play for traditional funerals, street parades, and family celebrations. Benny Jones, Sr., a brass band veteran and son of noted musician Chester Jones, founded the Treme Brass Band over 15 years ago, following his role as a drummer with the Olympia Brass Band and a leader of the Dirty Dozen and Chosen Few Brass Bands.

      Although they are known internationally through their recordings and tours, the Treme Brass Band is still firmly rooted in the New Orleans street band tradition. Many veterans of Treme have gone on to found other bands, including the Rebirth, New Birth, and Little Rascal Bands.


      The Tremè Brass Band plays the music of a people. The people in New Orleans who know how to celebrate life with a second line parade or mourn a person's death with a jazz funeral. The Tremè Brass Band represents the future of the New Orleans Brass Band Tradition. Although their music is steeped in the deep roots of New Orleans Jazz, this ensemble of young and old bring to it a fresh, exuberance which mixes elements of funk, soul, and modern jazz to the delight of all listeners.
