AUCKLAND CITY SCOUNDRELS
The 'Auckland City Scoundrels' are a newly formed Second Line Brass Band from Auckland bringing the infectiously funky sounds of the New Orleans street music scene to New Zealand. The ACS brings a fusion of genres together, from RnB to Funk to Pop to Jazz all mixed together in a melting pot of live musical energy. The band was formed in the early half of '16 by saxophonist Alex Eichelbaum after a holiday in the southern state of Louisiana. After hearing the vibrant and fiery sounds that New Orleans Second Line Bands made, he quickly came home and built the 9-piece ensemble that it is today with the goal of bringing life back to the streets of Auckland.
The Auckland City Scoundrels are bringing the tightest and funkiest New Orleans groove to Splore in 2017!
