"I am the Chief Creative Officer of the Batiste Brand. If there is a product you are interested in, please call me. I offer personal attention to serve you. Our products have stood the test of time. Beginning with the family band, since 1971, I have been the administrator of my family's affairs in music. As the sole composer of the Batiste Brothers Band songs, I have written and published more than 30 compositions.
I managed and recorded Jonathan, Jamal and Travis as the Batiste Kids. That act performed every Lundi Gras at the Children's Museum. Now, they are adults-Pharmacist, UNO graduate and Juilliard graduate.
When they performed dates, they were acompanied by my mother and father's great grand children.
The Batiste Band's first recording of "Star Lite" took place in 1976. That session included family members and non-family members. The family members were David, Michael, Peter and Russell. Later, David's other son Damon joined us in the studio for additional recordings.
By 1978, Damon and Russell would become members of the Batiste Brothers Band. The Band's world tour would include-with all of these member-Japan.
Peter's children performs regularly with the Batiste Brothers Band. They are Quanna and her children. Peter, Jr. is a rapper. Also, Micheal's son, Lil Mike is a rapper. I am proud to say, I have performed at the Jazz Fest with every one of these excellent musicians as their leader.
Prior to that, and starting in 1962, my Dad and John would managed David and the Gladiators. After that, David managed the Gladiators. When I returned from the U.S. Army in 1971, my mother asked me the to manage the Gladiators, and I did until 1975.
David, Michael and I were the family members in the band when we wrote and recorded the 1970 hit single, "Funky Soul."
In 1976, I founded the Batiste Brothers Band.
In education, the Batiste Brothers Band has toured all of the Public Elementary and Secondary Schools in New Orleans. Additionally, we routinely accompanied up and coming artists in school talent shows.
In 2008, I signed an MOU with Paul Vallas and RSD to have The Batiste Family at Live Oak, Elementary School and in 2010, I signed an agreement with ReNew to name Batiste Cultural Arts Academy.
Finally, for everything from consulting to performing and teaching, contact me and I'll be happy to direct you to your needs."
