Pinettes Brass Band


The Pinettes Brass Band, World’s Only All female Brass Band, was formed by Mr. Jefferey Herbert in 1991. Each member born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, attended St. Mary’s Academy High School an all-girl catholic school. Beginning with 16 or more members, the Pinettes ended up with not only St. Mary’s females but other females around the town.

The Pinettes Brass Band can be seen at many different venues, such as: The Jazz & Heritage Festival, The Satchmo Festival, The Krewe of Muses parade (an all female parade in New Orleans, Louisiana), and The French Quarter Festival, just to name a few. The ladies also have a long resume around the town for doing parties, wedding, conventions, schools, nursing house, etc….The band has very much in common with the other male brass bands around the city. The only difference being is the Pinettes are all females!

Today, the band is still on a journey of becoming the best in the business and to take over this male dominant industry. The Pinettes Brass Band dream is to travel worldwide and to show everyone that music definitely is a universal language!

Come see them live at Maison on Frenchmen Street.
