Snug Harbor presents
SNUG LATE with TRUMPET MAFIA
Friday January 5th, 2024 11:30pm (Doors: 11:30pm )
From its organic beginnings in the summer of 2013 as a group of New Orleans trumpeters getting together at bandleader, composer and educator Ashlin Parker’s apartment to share practice techniques and support each other’s continued growth, the Trumpet Mafia has become a band of creative excellence with unexpected arrangements that mix traditional jazz and hip-hop styles.  

Since 2016, the rotating assembly of horn players, sometimes backed by a local rhythm section, has performed energetic "takeovers" both in street pop-ups and at numerous festivals in New Orleans and abroad, including the New Orleans Jazz Festival and French Quarter Festival, garnering an OffBeat Magazine "Best Emerging Artist" Award in 2017. 

As the Trumpet Mafia has coalesced as a performing unit, it also has expanded as a concept, with membership expanding to include trumpeters in countries such as Japan, Australia, Switzerland, and Russia, as well as locations across the United States. Now, the Trumpet Mafia intentionally includes children and teenagers so that they may grow and thrive from the experience of working alongside more skilled and experienced musicians in actual performance events such as large festivals. The 2019 JazzAscona festival in Switzerland recognized this unique design and invited Ashlin to lead the Trumpet Mafia project for 7 days of the 10 day festival.
