Look at the brass on that!
Nawlins' Soul meets Cincinnati Funk on Friday 5/19 at Northside Tavern. ELEVEN horn players between two bands? Do I smell a deep funk dynamite superjam brewing in your hometown?
«The New Royals are Cincinati's emergent deep funk band, channeling late 60s/early 70s funk 45s with all the flash and flare of Lyn Collins and the JB’s peppered with blues and jazz influences. The nine-piece band formed in early 2015 and plays high-octane shows around the Queen City, still ripe with reverence as the crucible of funk nearly half a century ago.»
“N’awlins Soul Meets Cincinnati Funk” – That is the best way to describe The Cincy Brass. This 9-piece brass band has the essence of Bourbon St, funk, hip-hop, and jazz all wrapped into an epic explosion of sound and passion. Whether it be an original off of their album (featuring Bootsy Collins, buggs tha rocka, or Cincinnati Pops conductor John Morris Russel) or a mind-blowing twist on your favorite covers (Beyonce, James Brown, Def Leppard, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, or Led Zeppelin just to name a few), or an old time N’awlins street music hit, The Cincy Brass delivers a performance that can’t be duplicated. The band has been a staple of the Cincinnati music scene since 2010, performing at some of Cincinnati’s hippest music venues and biggest festivals. You also may have seen the 3-time CEA winners at Reds games, festivals, opening for national artists in Cincinnati's biggest venues, or with Andy Dalton in his 2015 Pepsi commercial. Make sure you don’t miss The Cincy Brass. Oh yea…don’t forget to bring some beads!
