Over the past weekend, four brass band acts assembled in New Orleans under the Claiborne Avenue bridge to go head-to-head in a musical competition of sorts to see who the next "street kings" are. New Orleans' great Trombone Shorty served as one of the guest judges, and the winners received an all expenses paid trip to New York to record with Shorty at Red Bull Studios. 

Click through the gallery to see highlights from the weekend's festivities.
