The Free Agents Brass band blend old school R&B, hip-hop, gospel, reggae and afro beat.
The Free Agents Brass band is a New Orleans based brass band, that started in Atlanta Georgia in 2005. It was formed by Ellis Joseph, and at the time was comprised of displaced musicians due to Hurricane Katrina hint the term "Free Agents". The musicians then were all members of other bands, however due to the hurricane they were jobless.
They began playing around the Atlanta area to ease the pain of losing everything, and to express their love and heartbreak of not being in New Orleans.
The blend of old school r&b, hip hop, gospel, reggae, afro beat and traditional New Orleans music is what has carried the band thus far. Catch them at CubaDupa 2018.
