Batiste Brothers Band

The Batiste Brothers are performing at Jazz Fest 2012 on Congo Square
The Batiste Family is Louisiana's largest musical family.  The Batiste Brothers Band L.L.C. is the south’s original funk, soul, rock, jazz and R & B group.  In 1984, I wrote the song “New Orleans Music” to promote the gumbo style personality of a city‘s music.  In addition, the band has toured in Japan, Europe and other foreign countries.  So, for professional, courteous, prompt service and well traveled musicians, the Batiste Brothers Band® is the brand name you can count on.  When it comes to music, Batiste is the name you know.  I started the Batiste Brothers Band® in 1976 to honor my mother and father.  John and Estella Batiste are the parents of seven boys.  The band is named after the seven brothers-for the love and dedication our parents put into us
