HEADLINING ARTIST: The Rumble featuring Chief Joseph Boudreaux Jr.

Featuring seven Grammy-nominated musicians, The Rumble is more than just a band – it’s an opportunity to be immersed in a wholly unique facet of New Orleans culture. Composed of Second Chief Boudreaux Jr. of the Golden Eagles, trumpeter Aurélien Barnes, trombonist José Maize Jr., bassist TJ Norris, guitarist Ari Teitel, keyboardist Andriu Yanovski, and drummer Trenton O’Neal, the group fuses iconic New Orleans funk with electrifying brass and the singular visual splendor of the Black Masking carnival tradition.

The Rumble’s debut album, “Live at the Maple Leaf,” received a Grammy for Best Regional Roots Album of 2024. Their live show is a symphony of rich color and propulsive sound, with each member sharing vocal duties and engaging the audience in the classic Mardi Gras Indian-style call-and-response chanting. The Rumble continues to fight to preserve the legacies and traditions of the community for the next generation while bring new layers of depth to their live performances.
