MJ's Brass Boppers Brass Band

MJ’s Brass Boppers Brass Band is an authentic New Orleans singing and swinging Second Line brass band fusing traditional NOLA standards, funk, jazz, modern pop & more with a second line twist!

We’ve opened for a variety of acts, including George Clinton & Funkadelic, The O’Jays, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Funky Meters, George Porter Jr., Zigaboo Modeliste, Kermit Ruffins, and many more.


They led a Second Line across campus where I gave a talk. Everyone said it felt as close to being in New Orleans as is possible without being there. They rocked the campus and people are still talking about it.
