Jambalaya Brass Band, Pitchblak Brass Band

Jambalaya Brass Band

The Jambalaya Brass Band is New York City's ultimate New Orleans party band. Since 1998 they've been kickin' it hard with a flavor straight from the streets of New Orleans, paying their respects to the unique musical traditions of the city by incorporating a special blend of R&B, funk, gospel, traditional jazz, zydeco, Latin, hip-hop, and bebop. The band will take you on a historical journey through the New Orleans brass band tradition - a joyous romp starting from the early beginnings with Buddy Bolden, Jelly Roll Morton, and Louis Armstrong, and ending up with their own modern sounds influenced by the Rebirth, Dirty Dozen, and New Birth brass bands.

Pitchblak Brass Band

PitchBlak Brass Band is a Brooklyn based, ten-piece brass band whose style and sound represent hip-hop from the 1980's to present day. A diverse group of young musicians, composers & artists who truly represents the new and vibrant undercurrents of the city.

PitchBlak has performed at Brooklyn Bowl, 92YTribeca, the late Southpaw, SOB's, The Shrine, Toronto's NXNE Music Festival, The 1st Annual Bob Stewart Tuba Competition (which we WON!) and most recently completed its first tour of the Northeast. In November 2012, PitchBlak was invited to record at the coveted Converse Rubber Tracks recording studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where many established and up and coming artists have been invited to record and perform.

Band members are active in community outreach programs and in classrooms throughout the city, teaching and mentoring other young musicians. PitchBlak’s members come to the band with an incredible diversity of musical background and training, infusing their hip-hop-driven music with funk, rock, jazz, and classical. The result is a style as fresh as their dreads, shades, and dashikis—rich brass harmonies, lyrical hooks, tongue-twisting raps, and rhythms that make your blood race.
