Stephen Brown and the Bastion Band plays Ocean Island Backpackers Inn every Saturday night. The Cafe is great small room and it suits the band very well. It is all ages and no cover.

The band, a group of like minded, unamplified musicians, formed in 1982, perform traditional New Orleans jazz, roots country, blues, and R & B. Lyrical, bluesy, and unhurried, the Bastion Band treats fans to an evening of music rarely heard outside of the Crescent City. Featuring compositions of Jelly Roll Morton, WC Handy, Bessie Smith, and Louis Armstrong, plus roots country, folk, blues, and rock music from the golden era, the Bastion Band carries on a tradition that's been alive for over one hundred years.

It is a six-piece band but the lineup changes every week. Most weeks the band is: Stephen Brown, piano, guitar, and vocals; Denny Box, drums; Eugene Dowling, tuba; Alf Sleigh, trombone; Aaron Watson, guitar, accordion, and saw; and Alfons Fear, trumpet.
