French Quarter Second Line

Lagniappe

The sticky, fried catfish scented air is the funk that New Orleans’ own Lagniappe Brass Band breathes. Lagniappe Brass Band hits hard with its up-tempo, high energy funk that makes asses shake and sweat glands sweat. Below this is the infectious Afro-Cuban bass drum pulse that alone is the foundation for your dancing. The term, “lagniappe” is a Cajun French term defined as “something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure.” Mark Twain writes about the word as “a word worth traveling to New Orleans to get”. Come to New Orleans and see the band or catch them around the world – either way they will give you a ‘lil extra.
