Metro Presents: The Mudbug Brass Band

Celebrate Mardi Gras at Union Station with The Mudbug Brass Band. Louisiana-rooted but Los Angeles based, the 8-piece New Orleans Jazz band is dedicated to the Second Line tradition, drawing from New Orleans traditional jazz, R&B, funk and Mardi Gras. In a Los Angeles twist on the New Orleans roving block party-like tradition, the group will lead a Second Line procession through Union Station. Break out those sashes and parasols.

Metro Presents showcases free arts and cultural programs at historic Union Station. Produced by Metro Art, the diverse, all ages programming is designed to creatively activate the landmark station, engage the Los Angeles community and attract new riders.
