Headliner: High and Mighty Brass Band
We’re kicking off with a bang! In its early years, Downtown After 5 featured a Mardi Gras theme for the first event and we’re sticking with tradition. Co-mingling band members from New Orleans, NYC, and a host of other cities across the globe, this dynamic krewe has the unique ability to combine classic New Orleans Funk and R&B with more modern Afro-Beat and Hip Hop influences. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
Opener: Josh Phillips Big Band
After a long period of writing and a hiatus from playing live music, Josh Phillips is coming back with his latest and most ambitious project yet. Josh Phillips Big Band, just like the ever evolving and collaborative Asheville music scene, is a merging of musicians from all the bands Josh has performed with over the last 12 years.
