“IN OTHER PLACES CULTURE COMES DOWN FROM ON HIGH. IN NEW ORLEANS, IT BUBBLES UP FROM THE STREETS.” – ELLIS MARSALIS
Krewe Du Vieux Ball
Pocket Chocolate performing at the KDV Ball February 4th, 2023.
One by one, this group formed and grew quite naturally. We are a 9-piece funk band in the city of New Orleans. We perform familiar, tasteful selections while bringing our own, original sound to the audience.
Each of our performances differ from the one before. Though we play a mix of originals and covers in each of our shows, what makes our sound unique is the space in between and what we can do with it. With the presence of five horn players (two trumpets and three saxes), we gain a captivating element that adds breathtaking dynamics and zealous energy.
