This Saturday beneath the Claiborne Bridge, a winner will be crowned in the third annual Red Bull Street Kings competition. Four of New Orleans top brass bands will battle it out in a music throw down for the crown: New Creations Brass Band, New Breed Brass Band, To Be Continued Brass Band and The Original Pinettes.

They all know how to entertain; they all have style but only one group of musicians will earn the title as the next “Kings” or “Queens” of Brass music in New Orleans.

Glen David Andrews is hosting the Red Bull Street Kings competition which begins at noon and is free and open to the public.
