THE RUMBLE FEATURING CHIEF JOSEPH BOUDREAUX JR.
City Winery St. Louis presents The Rumble featuring Chief Joseph Boudreaux Jr. Live in concert on Friday, June 16th at 8 PM. The Rumble feat. Chief Joseph Boudreaux Jr. is New Orleans’ premier Mardi Gras Indian Funk ensemble, representing the legacy and preservation of NOLA music and black masking culture. Through their authentic Big Easy brass sound fused with deep funk and black masking street culture, The Rumble gives audiences a full-on New Orleans experience.
The group was created in 2021 by seven members of multiple GRAMMY nominated band Cha Wa. After their mass exodus, the collective vowed to both preserve and further their musical vision which blends New Orleans culture from past, present and future. Fronted by Second Chief Joseph Boudreaux Jr. of the legendary Golden Eagles Indian tribe, the collective boasts some of the next generation’s most prolific artists. The Rumble continues the legacy of Mardi Gras Indian funk, which was pioneered in part by Boudreaux’s father Big Chief Monk Boudreaux with the Wild Magnolias. The younger Boudreaux is a Grammy nominated singer himself and a well respected leader of the Black Masking Indian community. Trumpeter Aurélien Barnes masks with the Northside Skull and Bone Gang, another hallmark black masking carnival group. The brass band culture of New Orleans is represented by Barnes who plays with Kings of Brass and especially by trombonist José Maize of the TBC Brass band, known for electrifying crowds at the city’s famous second line parades.
