Partners N Crime

Partners N Crime

P-N-C
Partners N Crime, also known as P-N-C, is a group recognized as New Orleans hip hop royalty. In addition to its unique delivery of hip hop music, Partners N Crime also branched out into performing funk and jazz. It is most well known though, for its ability to rock just about any crowd, in a way unheard of before its inception.
Partners N Crime started making music together in the early 1990’s, with Walter “Kango Slimm” Williams and Michael “Mista Meana” Patterson. The duo still remains at the top of the New Orleans music scene, after touching and inspiring generations of fans. Partners N Crime has received many awards for their contribution to New Orleans music history, including the Big Easy Award and Lifetime Achievement Awards from the NOLA Hip Hop Awards, the Go DJs Coalition, one personally given to them by now Congressman Cedric Richmond, and quite a few other accolades.
Partners N Crime is not any ordinary group. They are well established writers, having written smash hit songs for stars like T-Pain, Master P, Juvenile, and many more. The group has performed in many world renowned festivals such as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. They have also shared the stage with legendary musicians such as Dr. John, Erma Thomas, Kermit Ruffins, and Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews. In addition, Partners N Crime performs a popular live show with a brass band.
Kango Slimm and Mista Meana are also co-owners of HITZ International, the conglomerate that services all of PNC’s greatest hits, with full ownership of all recordings and writings. They are currently in the studio working with some of the greats, including Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and many others.
Partners N Crime are of course, only partners in “musical crime”, in the sense that it is a crime that one group can garner so much epic talent and make such extraordinary music with a following that crosses all genders, races and socioeconomic lines, in the way in which P-N-C has been able to do for so many years. Partners N Crime is a brand that has demonstrated longevity as they go down in history as one of New Orleans’ premiere acts.

Pinettes Brass Band

And Then There Was Us:

The Original Pinettes Brass Band

Whoever said, “A dream can’t become reality” didn’t know the Original Pinettes Brass Band.

The Original Pinettes Brass Band, World’s Only All female Brass Band, was formed by Mr. Jefferey Herbert in 1991. Each member born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, attended St. Mary’s Academy High School an all-girl catholic school. Beginning with 16 or more members, the Original Pinettes ended up with not only St. Mary’s females but other females around the town.

The Original Pinettes Brass Band can be seen at many different venues, such as: The Jazz & Heritage Festival, The Satchmo Festival, The Essence Music Festival, and The French Quarter Festival, just to name a few. They also experienced traveling overseas when they performed in Istanbul, Izmir, and Ankara Turkey. The ladies also have a long resume around the town for doing parties, wedding, conventions, schools, nursing homes, etc….The band has very much in common with the other male brass bands around the city. The only difference being is the Original Pinettes are all females! The ladies gained more respect when they were crowned the winners of the 2013 Red Bull “Street Kings” brass band blowout competition when they beat three other male brass bands changing the name to Red Bull “Street QUEENS!”

Some of the ladies specialize in other careers, also. From college students to a computer tech, some of the ladies are mothers and wives. Nothing will get in the way of these ladies who consider one another sisters. “We’re not blood related, we’re love related….” says leader, Christie Jourdain.
