The Jack Brass Band

Fresh off a nod in Downbeat magazine’s “new wave of brass bands,” Minnesota’s own Jack Brass Band has become the go-to favorite for local Mardi Gras parties. For Fat Tuesday this year, the eight-man horn section is heading up Naughty Gras at the Amsterdam, which will include Bourbon Street-style vintage burlesque dancers, voodoo-conjuring magicians, a crawfish boil and New Orleans’ Abita beer on tap. This might be the official start of the end of winter. Chris Riemenschneider
