22nd Annual Houston International Jazz Fest

Texans like their music, and they also like a good fight. This weekend we’ll get a chance to witness both at the same time at the Houston International Jazz Festival’s battle of the bands. In one corner is our own Texas Brass Band, which combines jazz, R&B and hip-hop in a genre-busting explosion of sound. They’ll be taking on the heavyweights of Louisiana’s Rebirth Brass Band, fresh off a Grammy Award win for Best Regional Roots Music Album. Both bands will appear onstage simultaneously to fight for your heart.
