THE GREEN WAVE BRASS BAND
The Green Wave Brass Band (GWB) was founded in the fall of 2008 as a dynamic addition to the Tulane University Marching Band (TUMB). Under the direction of Mark Lighthiser the group has quickly grown, and with a dedicated group of talented students the mix has proven perfect for instant success. The GWB blends traditional brass band literature with a more modern mix of styles that reflects the background of the students involved. This exciting fusion adds a new twist to a New Orleans classic.
The GWB is a presidential box favorite at Tulane football games and has been a hit at events both on and off campus, with regular Saints halftime appearances at local restaurants. We offer traditional brass band second lines to full funk sets for dancing. Students from many different backgrounds play the music of brass bands in the city where this music was born and still evolves. Let this exciting new group ‘funk up’ your event or party like nothing but a brass band can. For bookings contact Mark Lighthiser, 504.495.6885.
