The Heavyweights Brass Band packs a one-two punch of crossover appeal and respect from music’s elite.

Inspired by the New Orleans brass band tradition, the Heavyweights are unafraid to incorporate influences from disparate areas of the musical spectrum, from pop hits of the day to original compositions, from R&B and funk throwbacks to the infectious rhythms of Latin America, all woven together with the thread of adventuresome sophistication.

Touring across Canada and sharing the stage with such influential groups as The Roots, Trombone Shorty, Galactic and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble has helped build the group a loyal following.

The band released their third CD, This City, in March 2018.

“This City is a celebration of New Orleans horn styles of the past, and present and brings the songs into tomorrow. The HWBB crafts tunes that resonate in your bones, booty, and soul!”              – Murf Reeves, WWOZ 90.1 New Orleans

“The Heavyweights Brass Band is worth its weight in gumbo and jambalaya.”                      – Georges Tonla Briquet www.jazzhalo.be (2018)
