Wasted Potential Brass Band is a bonafide New Orleans-style Second Line brass band, based in Atlanta. Multiple readers-choice award winners in Atlanta’s Creative Loafing, WPBB can be heard throughout the city in music venues, parades and street corners. WE'RE what fun sounds like.


What started as a Thursday night jam session on the patio at Steinbeck's in Oakhurst has become what we now know as Wasted Potential Brass Band.  We enjoy playing music and we like hangin' with each other and think that comes out in the music.  This band is inspired by but not limited to the music of the New Orleans culture... and still rooted in our own Atlanta vibe.  We've recorded some live stuff, we've been in the studio and we play around town at venues from Northside Tavern to Venkman's.  We can do parades, weddings, private gigs and the bar scene.  WPBB is a non-discriminating, equal opportunity, fun-loving band.  See you at the next gig.
