Organized Crime is teaming up with some of our favorite musicians from several different genres to keep things cool and fresh while fighting the slow, hot summer months in New Orleans.
Each week we'll be featuring special guests including:
the members of Brass Lightning, rapper Alfred Banks, horn extraordinaires Eric "Benny" Bloom, Brad Walker, and effects/noise wizard Cliff Hines.
Mark your calendar and get ready for the biggest throwdowns of the week every Wednesday in July

ABOUT THE BAND:
A staple on the New Orleans funk-jam live music scene, Organized Crime has been holding down support slots at the city’s top-tier venues: Tipitina’s, Howlin’ Wolf, House of Blues, and the Maple Leaf Bar.
Forming the group initially as Hammond organ-based trio, members Andriu Yanovski, Patrick Kelleher and Henry Green immersed themselves in a musical lineage, aligned with active groups like Soulive and Medeski Martin & Wood, but with literacy all the way back to Blue Note funk jazz revolutionaries Jimmy Smith and Dr. Lonnie Smith.
In keeping with the ethos of their city, they study the musical traditions of their elders with a deep respect for what came before. However, with their sound fine-tuned in the workshop of the New Orleans live-music world (members can be found as a band and also individually with NOLA regulars Brass-a-Holics, Magnetic Ear, Eric “Benny” Bloom, Sexual Thunder!, A.J. Hall and more).
