Biography: New Orleans-born trumpet player Mark Braud followed in the footsteps of his grandfather, trumpeter John “Picket” Brunious, Sr., picking up the trumpet at age twelve. He attended the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and majored in jazz studies at the University of New Orleans, where he was selected to join the school’s annual European tour.

Braud continued touring after graduation, and eventually became one of the youngest members of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He can be found playing trad jazz favorites several nights a week at this legendary venue, and highlights venues like the Spotted Cat and Palm Court Jazz Cafe with his eponymous quintet. Braud also performs with the Harry Connick, Jr. Big Band and other groups.
