      EVENT DETAILS
      VT Carnival Breakdown- w/ Celebration Brass Band & VT Shakedown

      Come shake out your cabin fever blues to a night of Cajun brass, Afrobeat & funk! We'll have some Cajun themed food specials on hand as well.

      VT Shakedown plays funk and Afrobeat, with a tight rhythm section interacting with rippin' horn solos, polyrhythms interwoven amongst vocals, and hypnotic bass and guitar lines dancin' with funked up drums.

      Celebration Brass Band emerged in 2009, under the leadership of New Orleans native and Langdon NH resident Peter Simoneaux, as a means of developing a community of musicians dedicated to the study of traditional and contemporary New Orleans style brass band music. This is the music of jazz funerals and street parades in New Orleans, the style that gave birth to the careers of Buddy Bolden, Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, whose lineage continues to this day in the funky, driving street rhythms of groups like the Dirty Dozen, the Rebirth Brass Band, the New Birth, Treme, and countless others who have helped re-define the sound of New Orleans music over the past 40 years.
