Long-time Best of Jackson winner Southern Komfort Brass Band rings in 2020 with the Best Jazz Band honor. The band, which formed in 2010, found its footing squarely in New Orleans-style jazz, but members pride themselves on the flexible nature of their playing. The band also won BOJ awards in both 2013 and 2014 for Best Jazz Band, as well as the Best Original and Cover Band honor in 2013 and 2014.

One of the band’s drummers, Tim Boyd, says what makes the band so unique is not playing solely brass band music, also fluidly cycling through jazz and reggae or even pop. Boyd says the band’s focus is to make people feel good and dance.

From Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” to Pharrell’s “Happy,” the band has a large repertoire of covers to pull from as well as original songs like “Jacktown” and “SK Theme.” The band’s core group of members are Jamie “Blophish” Abrams, Tim Boyd, Cedric Eubanks, Lorenzo Gayden, Joseph Handy, Corey Hannah, Gerard Howard, E. Antony James and Terry Miller. — Caleb McCluskey
