Lowdown Brass Band, hailing from Chicago, is a horn-driven ensemble with strong roots in the ‘New Orleans second line’ tradition. A fierce sousaphone sets the foundation for trumpets, trombones and saxophones that intertwine in a cacophony of tight lead lines, spontaneous call-and-response and bombastic brass attacks. While taking a page from the jazz and blues giants of the past, Lowdown Brass Band melds modern funk, hip-hop, reggae and pop into a signature sound that's all their own.
Their live shows, which feature high-energy, dynamic vocalists, hip-hop emcees and body movement, have delighted audiences at venues throughout the United States and across the globe, including Levitt AMP Berea (2017), Levitt AMP Woonsocket (2018), The Metro, Lincoln Hall, House of Blues, The Promontory, and the Cotai Jazz and Blues Festival.
