Sponsor a Culture Bearer from New Orleans

to celebrate the NOLA Tricentennial with a parade and birthday party in London.

Make Music Day UK  has asked for our help to put together a second line parade and party through the streets of Central London on 21 June, and it’s going to be incredible.

But you can’t have a New Orleans second line without anyone from New Orleans.

So they also asked us to find the right people to represent our city, and our culture bearers need your help to get over there, have a roof over their heads, eat, pay their bills, maybe even fix that leaky valve on their horn and show Londoners how we do it back home. 

Make Music Day is a worldwide celebration of music making for the sake of making music, not a paid event.

So we've launched a crowdfunding campaign to transport, house, feed and pay the cultural representatives on this trip to London.

Corporate, Institutional and Private sponsorship opportunities are available, please CONTACT US for information.

All for One Brass Band

Formed in 2003 while students at Warren Easton High School, the very next year they they were booked in both the States and Europe playing with Angie Stone, Macy Gray, Stevie Wonder, Vann Morrison and Alicia Keys among others. In 2005 everyone's home and instruments were washed away, and it took a few years to get the band back together full time. For the past decade they’ve been working hard playing in countless parades, in the studio, on stage and on the road.
