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

Hip Hop music has always been unafraid to push boundaries. Perhaps because it simultaneously came from nothing yet came from everything, the genre stands alone in how creatively outside influences can be incorporated into its musical mix.

PitchBlak Brass Band uses the epic sounds of tubas, trombones, saxophones and other typically non-hip hop instruments in the spirit of The Roots and some of rap’s iconic live bands, to deliver an energy that samples, loops and breakbeats can’t always capture. Their blend of soundscapes and lyrical exuberance creates a grand adventure in listening, one that can hold the attention of music fans from across a fairly wide spectrum.
