Bring your blankets or lawn chairs and join the Modlin Center for the Arts as we kick-off the 2014-2015 season with an explosion of high energy brass band performances on the Westhampton Green (in front of Booker Hall of Music). The festivities will begin at noon and include local area food trucks, beer trucks, and an extraordinary amount of high octane brass.
Richmond’s own No BS! Brass fearlessly combines elements of James Brown, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin into their fiercely original sound. Trained in the conservatory and hardened in the garage, No BS! makes instant fans wherever they perform.
Slavic Soul Party brings their fiery blend of funk grooves, Balkan brass, Gypsy accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops to the All Brass! concert. Slavic Soul Party weaves the techno, gospel, funk, dub, jazz, and Latin influences of New York’s neighborhoods seamlessly into a Balkan brass setting that has won devoted fans on both sides of the Atlantic.
Red Baraat returns to the Modlin Center with jazz, go-go, brass, funk, and hip-hop. The incredibly danceable music of this pioneering band from Brooklyn draws people from all backgrounds and ethnicities into an exuberant celebration.
Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. From the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world and being featured on the HBO hit series Treme, they are committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, and extending themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound.
