Portland-based brass band welcomes attendees to the festival with a New Orleans second-line.

Founded in 2010, the BrassRoots Movement specializes in traditional and modern New Orleans style brass band music. The group strives to bring the true spirit of Crescent City brass band music to the Pacific Northwest. The band plays weddings, street parties, special events, celebrates life in funeral processions in the New Orleans’ style…and for the past several years has helped the festival welcome attendees to Waterfront park Friday morning, July 5, and will appear on the Bayou Blues Cruise on the Portland Spirit that afternoon.
