The Stooges Music Group came into existence in 1996, with several high schoolers attended the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, John F. Kennedy High and St. Augustine High School. The band got their first break in 1998 when they were invited to play for the Rebirth Brass Band's 15th Anniversary Parade. They were an instant hit, becoming one of the premier bands of New Orleans. They recently won the Red Bull Street Kings Brass Band competition. 

"The Stooges Brass Band puts on one of the most entertaining, audience-interactive shows of any band on the scene.  Just like their namesake, the band is known and adored for clowning during the shows, mugging at the audience, group dancing, inciting passionate city ward call and responses."
