A Hip Hop Brass Band: The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

A Hip Hop Brass Band: The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

Hailing from the Chi, but now also calling Brooklyn home, The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is an eight-piece (not counting drums and bass!) outfit that conjures mesmerizing jams channeling funk, afrobeat, and jazz. Their compositions boast virtuosic structure, texture, and groove where the elements weave in and out of each other in an engrossing maelstrom of sound. It’s the type of music that makes you forget your body. From the first stab, your arms, hips, and gluteus maximus cease contact with your brain only to propel you from the venue an hour later drenched in sweat with an indelible smile plastered to your face. They return from Europe on September 20th for a show at the Knit in Brooklyn. Wear your "trancing shoes." - BrokeMC
