Hypnotic Brass Ensemble: February 24

“…the world’s funkiest marching band one minute, an unhinged New Orleans funeral procession the next.” — Los Angeles Times

Seven blood brothers from the south side of Chicago were raised in an extraordinary musical family, learning their craft from their father, cosmic-jazz trumpeter Phil Cohran. The band freely mix the brass band tradition with generous doses of hip hop, soul and funk, creating an intoxicating and boisterous blend that is just barely contained. From Lincoln Center to Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House, they have toured the world, backed up Prince, and their song, “War,” was featured in the blockbuster movie, Hunger Games.
