Pitchblak Brass Band
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.

Underground Horns
Underground Horns
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."
