We are New Natives Brass Band from Lafayette, LA.
We know how to party; a good time is our specialty.
The Natives were scheduled to perform at SXSW this year in Austin, TX at Antones on March 21st, but sadly, the whole festival has been cancelled for the first time in 34 years. We're sad to miss this performance as it would have been our second appearance at SXSW. The onset of the Corona Virus has caused local and state officials to call off festivals around the US. We just hope that everyone stays safe during this time of uncertainty.

Saturday, September 28th - Another Busy Weekend
We had another busy weekend with two gigs in one Saturday. First we took the stage at the Brown Sugar Festival in New Iberia and then we capped the day off by getting active in our own community with Lafayette's "Re-Imagine McV Fest". We had an incredible time and we hope everyone else did as well.
The Natives hope to see a lot of familiar and new faces on October 16th at noon at Blackham Coliseum for the Bayou Round Up Car Show. After that, we want y'all to come and get spooky with us for our Halloween Jam at the Wurst Biergarten!
October is looking to be a very fun month!
August 23rd and 24th - Double-Header Weekend
With two performances, this weekend has been very busy for the Natives. We want to thank everyone that came out to Wing Fingers and The Pearl and we hope our music will make the start of your school year a little bit brighter.

New Natives in The Avalanches's Frankie Sinatra Video
The Natives make their international acting debut in the Avalanches's new music video Frankie Sinatra. The Natives make their first appearance at about fourteen seconds in.
Being that this is the first release from The Avalanches since their 2001 release Since I Left You there is a lot of buzz about their new project - and there should be.
Enjoy the video!
