In the year 2010, a brand new sound was born. The Brass-A-Holics joined the ranks of the time honored traditions, culture and music that have come out of the great city of New Orleans, Louisiana.
The band consists of core New Orleans brass elements â€“ trombone, trumpet, saxophone, and features a full drum set, percussion, keyboard, bass and electric guitars. A Brass-A-Holics show is a singular experience where you will hear influences of Chuck Brown, Miles Davis, Nirvana, John Coltrane, Wham, Cyndi Lauper, Kanye West, and Louis Armstrong all in one energetic set!
The band was conceived in the mind of Trombonist, Winston Turner, whose roots stem from the St. Augustine High School Marching 100, the Southern University Human Jukebox, The Pinstripes Brass Band, and The Soul Rebels Brass Band.
He created the Brass-A-Holics with the vision of merging the unrivaled New Orleans brass sound with Washington DC’s Go-Go groove
