New Legaxy is a Boston-based band that blends jazz sensibility, sampled beats, and breezy vocals. They’re led by New Orleans drummer Brian Richburg Jr., who is often joined by Josh Porter, Arlo Sims, Daniel Abraham, Evenson Vincent, and others. The band has partnered with Lululemon to curate and host monthly jam sessions, all of which have sold out. New Legaxy’s debut EP, Summer Songs, came out in late 2020, and its follow-up is due this summer.
Richburg began playing in his father’s church at an early age. Born and raised in New Orleans, he was exposed to the diverse sounds and cultures that define the uniqueness of the city. Richburg’s drumming incorporates the African and Caribbean-inspired rhythms of New Orleans street bands. He has appeared with Nicholas Payton, Donald Harrison Jr., Ellis Marsalis, Christian Scott, Delfeayo Marsalis, Amina Figarova, and many others.
