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 (musician from The Hot Antic Jazz Band) decided to continue the project. Under the name of the Blauzac Big Band the group has grown in size & experience. It now plays a large part at the midday entertainment on the Saturday & Sunday of the festival. 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.
