Jazz Funeral in Minnesota

This video of Band of Praise was produced to show how a funeral held in the New Orleans tradition might look and sound in Minnesota.

The Adath-Yeshurun Cemetery in Edina, Minnesota is small and beautifully cared for. Its graceful slopes flatten out to the north bank of Minnehaha Creek. October 2nd in Minnesota can be a cold, cloudy, damp affair ... but not on this day.

Supporting Musicians & Their Music

This excellent video from Jonathan Patridge captured the music and the spirit of the Sept. 20, 2013 Rally outside Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, in support of the orchestra musicians who were enduring more than a year long lock out by orchestra management. Along with The Copper Street Brass Quintet and the Young Musicians of Minnesota, Band of Praise provided music of inspiration, motivation and celebration throughout the evening. The full video is 1 hour and 10 minutes long. You'll find Band of Praise beginning at the 3:53 and 18:34 marks, and from 50:14 to the end. We were proud to be there.
