About B Side Brass Band

B Side Brass Band brings the New Orleans Brass Band Sound to the Pacific Northwest. Our mission is to get you moving and grooving, sweating up the dance floor, and shaking your BackSide to the beat.

Founded by longtime New Orleans music fans, Steve Pool (sousaphone) and Marc Saccoman (trumpet), B Side delivers traditional street parade music with precision and punch. Joined by drummers Dale Largent and Gabe Shonerd, as well as Rick Murphy, Karen Campbell, and Lief Bamberg on horns, this group is stirring things up both on and off the dance floor.

On the stage or in the streets, the sounds of B Side Brass Band are sure to engage your spirit. The vibe is fresh, energetic, and raw – a kind of musical gumbo for the soul. The audience is guaranteed to have a great time drinking in the sounds of New Orleans and moving to the beat.
