Underground Horns is a Brooklyn based brass band playing Afro Funk Bhangra
New Orleans grooves and beyond. AllAboutJazz called their 2009 debut record
FUNK MONK "kick-ass dance music.that brushes up against psychedelia.with
shots of funky brass juice."
In 2010 they recorded their second album BIG BEAT which was reviewed by Ken
Waxman in The New York Jazz Record calling them "an unapologetic party band
with brains...with tonal inflections from the Big Easy, central Africa, the
Maghreb and the Baltic states."
Nick Gianni's Evolution
EVOLUTION is a band comprised of seasoned musicians driven by the vision of saxophone player Nick Gianni. The band formed in 2005 out of downtown NYC's vibrant music scene, honing its sound at NUBLU, Ave C's late night hot spot. Its musicians are not only versed in jazz but also electronica, funk, dub and world beat. The band came together organically, as all its members had been playing together over the years in different projects. they combined their musical talents and experiences together to form a unique sound all their own.
Together the members of Nick Gianni's EVOLUTION have performed at such concert venues as Red Hook Jazz Festival, River To River Festival, Willisau Jazz Festival and Central Park Summerstage.
