For the first year of the festival in 2012, musicians from the village music school agreed to participate in a New Orleans style parade. The enthusiastic band, lead by Bernard Anthérieu (well known musician from The Hot Antic Jazz Band & now the Léo Swing) decided to continue the project. Under the name of the Blauzac Big Band the group has grown in size & experience. It will still play at midday on the first Saturday & Sunday of July in front of the bars of the village. The band is surrounded by more experienced musicians, who have the pleasure of encouraging these enthusisatic amateurs. The band also plays at various events in the village & region.
