Free Event

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 and 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.
