Rising up from the ashes of such New Orleans bands as Lump,Grassy Knoll and Sticka Bush,The Egg Yolk Jubilee Music Band formed in 1996. The members,natives of the New Orleans area and long time acquaintances from the halcyon days of high school,shared a burning desire to fry up a new style of New Orleans music that satisfied the members’eclectic palates.
After stumbling through many recipes,The Yolk created a delicious new menu of savory tunes,which have been served up for twenty years at every venue from the Acadian Brew House to the Zeitgeist Theatre. They have produced four classic album’s,won the Big Easy and OffBeat Awards,played the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival,the French Quarter Festival,South by Southwest Festival ,the Ponderosa Stomp and several more. The Music of Egg Yolk Jubilee was featured on the hit HBO series Treme in Summer 2011.
They have served as backing band to several legendary musical icons including “The Emperor of the Universe”Ernie K-Doe,Al “Carnival Time”Johnson,Alex Chilton,Jello Biafra,Gibby Haynes and Howard Tate. The Egg Yolk Jubilee are currently recording their fifth album,and are planning to launch into outer space on a home-built rocket upon completion.
