"Two days of boundary-burning music and art performance, Neon Lights brings to mind the muddy banks of Glastonbury" - Timeout Singapore
New Stream Bass Band is Singapore’s first-ever New Orleans style brass band that blends jazz, funk, latin and hip-hop styles with traditional New Orleans brass sounds. New Orleans brass bands are most famous for their “Second Line” parades, part of the city’s rich cultural heritage.
The band was founded in June 2014 by Yohei (Snare drum) and Eriko (Trombone), who have been to New Orleans frequently, where they played with local musicians for gigs, street performances and Second Lines. The band pursues an authentic New Orleans sound, adding tastes of steady chart hits from artists such as Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.
It is a unique band form, consisting of separate Bass and Snare drums, Washboard, Sousaphone as bass, and lead horns - Trumpet, Trombone and Saxophone- that allow for an unplugged yet vibrant sound. Watch out for them as they roam the festival grounds!
Big thanks to our supporters...
