Since 2010, the Brass-a-Holics have been taking their unique sound
around the world. Steeped in the deep musical culture of New Orleans,
the band brings a heavy dose of go-go funk to the New Orleans brass
sound. In a blending of musical cultures stemming from cities
separated by more than a thousand miles, a Brass-a-Holics live show
takes the New Orleans brass band culture and infuses it with the
electricity of Washington D.C.'s go-go. The resulting sound is both
captivating and unique. The band consists of core New Orleans brass
elements- trumpet, trombone, saxophone- and adds a full drum set,
percussion, keyboard, bass an electric guitar, giving the band
limitless options to explore new sonic territory. Whether performing
their original music or using the framework of hit pop songs as
springboards for fiery improvisations, there is something in the set
to appeal to every music fan. Once the music starts, the demographics
blend and a brand new experience is created- one that leaves
one-of-a-kind memories that live on long after the last note.
