Treme Brass Band
The Treme Brass Band is a marching brass band from New Orleans, Louisiana led by snare drummer, Benny Jones, Sr. The band, which plays traditional New Orleans-style brass band music, features a shifting lineup that has included trumpeters Kermit Ruffins and James Andrews, tenor saxophonists Elliot Callier and Frederick Sheppard, trombonist Corey Henry, and sousaphonist Kirk Joseph. Lionel Batiste appears consistently on the bass drum.

The Treme Brass Band, including Uncle Lionel Batiste was featured in Darren Hoffman's 2011 non-fiction film, Tradition is a Temple. Their version of A Closer Walk With Thee is on the soundtrack of the first episode of the HBO series Treme. The National Endowment for the Arts awarded them a National Heritage Fellowship in 2006.
