The SJZ Boombox Truck rolls out to Gordon Biersch Brewing Company for Oktoberfest. Come out for free games for all ages, tasty beer and live music!
Opening for this event is the New Orleans style brass band the MJ’s Brass Boppers. The group’s sound has been meticulously formed over years of practicing and experimenting together from concert halls to street corners, fusing classic cultural New Orleans performance with funk, jazz, modern pop, and a second line twist.
Since 2008, the tight knit musicians have written, practiced and performed together at festivals, community events, nightclubs and street corners around the Bay Area and beyond. They’ve opened for a variety of acts, including George Clinton & Funkadelic, The O’Jays, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Funky Meters, George Porter Jr., Zigaboo Modeliste, Kermit Ruffins, Katdelic and many more.
Together, these musicians come together as the versatile MJ’s Brass Boppers, offering a taste of authentic New Orleans style with a West Coast flair.
