In the summer of 2005, the To Be Continued (TBC) Brass Band is on the verge of going from The Big Easy to The Big Time. Acclaimed music group The Roots takes an active interest in helping TBC try to make it outside of New Orleans’ poorest neighborhoods and onto their dreams. But then Hurricane Katrina drowned everything they had — except their spirit. 'From the Mouthpiece on Back' is a unique documentary about TBC’s courageous return to New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, as well as a tribute to their carrying the torch for contemporary brass band music with their unique blend of jazz and hip-hop.
