The Gramophone Allstars Big Band is a music group that fuses Jamaican music from the sixties (ska, rocksteady and reggae) with different styles of black music such as soul or jazz among many others. With Barcelona as its nerve center, and under the baton of Bisbalen saxophonist Genís Bou, the group has released six albums and performed at the main festivals, venues and parties in the country, becoming one of the most consolidated musical projects in the ‘current black music scene.

Born in the spring of 2008, The Gramophone Allstars transformed into a big band with the acclaimed “Jazzmaica” (2014) which was even published in Japan. With the following album “Maraca Soul” (2017) they opened the rhythmic range to other Caribbean sounds such as boogaloo or calypso.

They have subsequently published three short albums: “The Reel Influence”, the single “Let’s Get It On” (version Marvin Gaye) and the EP “Love Letter” (2021). With 150 concerts behind them in big band format, in 2023 they return with the long-awaited “Call Your Friends”.

It is no exaggeration to say that New Orleans is the birthplace of much of the music we hear today. The Growing City is the pot where cultures, rhythms and stories have been cooked and mixed, resulting in musical pillars such as blues, jazz, r&b or funk.

The Big Easy’s Crew is a collective of experienced musicians based in Barcelona, ​​who are united by a passion for roots music and who recreate, in a show full of dynamism and energy, a journey through the great variety of styles that have their origin in New Orleans; from the primitive jazz of Louis Armstrong, passing through the classic funk of The Meters to the more contemporary sounds of bands like Galactic.

Put on your best galas and dancing shoes and get ready to stroll through the sonic universe of NOLA with The Big Easy’s Crew.
