Second line music is most common in New Orleans, but with the efforts of groups like the Element Brass Band, second line is reaching appreciative audiences well beyond its traditional boundaries. Second line music is being played both nationally and internationally. Element Brass Band is the premier brass band in Sacramento, CA and one of the few authentic second line bands on the West Coast! Also known as E.B.B., the Element Brass Band has performed at many Festivals including the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, the Davis Jazz Festival, The Shannapalooza Festival and the Loomis Eggplant Festival. E.B.B. has performed throughout the Sacramento region at such venues as Ace Of Spades, JB’s Lounge, The Shady Lady, The Press Club, Bows And Arrows, Old Ironsides and The Torch Club.

When Sacramento trumpeter Ryan Robertson traveled to New Orleans in 2010, he knew that he had found a new home and calling. Robertson immersed himself in New Orleans’ rich culture and became fascinated with the local music, finding work playing in several local brass bands. When Robertson returned to his hometown of Sacramento in 2011, he brought the music of New Orleans with him. He quickly rallied some of Sacramento's top aspiring musicians, and the Element Brass Band was born. Robertson could not get New Orleans out of his blood and soon returned to the Crescent City to further his musical career, passing the bandleader torch to saxophonist Byron Colborn.
