Treme Brass Band Hits Prime Time
April 13, 2010
If you watched the new HBO series Treme to the end of the pilot episode last Sunday, you would have seen actual musicians mingling with the actors, including Elvis Costello, New Orleans legend Kermit Ruffins, and...2006 NEA National Heritage Fellows, the Treme Brass Band. Founder Benny Jones even got a line! Congrats to the band, and if you want to read more about the Treme Brass Band (and an NEA interview with Benny Jones), go here.
