Album Notes
One of the hottest bands to come out of New Orleans’ sizzling brass band scene, the Nightcrawlers have been beguiling local and foreign audiences for years with their intoxicating combination of traditional jazz, modern funk, and “a booty-shaking, hanky-waving rhythmic base that would set even the most rhythmically impaired among us to stomping” (Replay magazine). The talented composers, arrangers, and improvisers that make up this ensemble cut their teeth with a who’s who of Crescent City music – including Dr. John, the Neville Brothers, Harry Connick Jr., and Galactic. When they’re not exciting the locals with their infectious, original music (captured impressively on this award-winning CD Live at the Old Point), they’re spreading their contagious Crescent City sound worldwide.

The critics rave:
“This is a flat-out groove ride; just sit back and let the vibe flow through.” JazzTimes
“The 10-man bands intricate jangle sounds both traditional and absolutely up-to-date” Mother Jones
“…a band called the Nightcrawlers is one of the best in town” New York Times, January, 2001

"With this recording the Nightcrawlers have added a new twist to the over-a-century-old tradition of brass bands in New Orleans. This very talented and eclectic group of musicians combines the best elements of local contemporary music to create a fresh and funky sound." -Jerry Brock

"The New Orleans Nightcrawlers are in full flight at the Old Point Bar across the river, and like they say in the Sixth Ward, it ain't gonna be nothin' nice. Put on your honky tonk clothes and your favorite dancing shoes, turn up the volume on your CD machine and get ready to kick 'em up high. This is what brass band music is all about." - John Sinclair
