PitchBlak Brass Band
PitchBlak Brass Band
PitchBlak Brass Band is a Brooklyn based, ten-piece brass band whose style and sound represent hip-hop from the 1980's to present day. A diverse group of young musicians, composers & artists who truly represents the new and vibrant undercurrents of the city.

PitchBlak has performed at Brooklyn Bowl, 92YTribeca, the late Southpaw, SOB's, The Shrine, Toronto's NXNE Music Festival, The 1st Annual Bob Stewart Tuba Competition (which we WON!) and most recently completed its first tour of the Northeast. In November 2012, PitchBlak was invited to record at the coveted Converse Rubber Tracks recording studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where many established and up and coming artists have been invited to record and perform.

Band members are active in community outreach programs and in classrooms throughout the city, teaching and mentoring other young musicians. PitchBlak's members come to the band with an incredible diversity of musical background and training, infusing their hip-hop-driven music with funk, rock, jazz, and classical. The result is a style as fresh as their dreads, shades, and dashikis—rich brass harmonies, lyrical hooks, tongue-twisting raps, and rhythms that make your blood race.

High & Mighty Brass Band
There’s a reason that musical trailblazers from Galactic to DJ Logic have recently chosen to collaborate with High and Mighty Brass Band! and legends such as Dr. John, Rebirth Brass Band, and Trombone Shorty have chosen them to share the stage. Co-mingling band members from New Orleans, NYC, and a host of other cities across the globe, this dynamic krewe has the unique ability to combine classic New Orleans Funk and R&B with more modern Afro-Beat and Hip Hop influences.

Their live performances are both fiercely entertaining and refreshingly inspiring, connecting the band with each and every audience member. Just catching a single performance will make it abundantly clear why HMBB! is known as “a party in progress!”
