Department of Visual & Performing Arts presents Young Blood Brass Band


Department of Visual & Performing Arts presents Young Blood Brass Band

Sun. Sep 29, 2013 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Horning Theater

Youngblood Brass Band flouts convention in an ecstatic, raucous, incendiary fashion, taking the form of a New Orleans brass band and morphing it into a punked-out hip-hop behemoth of groove and purpose. The ten-member ensemble, born in Madison, Wisconsin, now hails from all over the US (Madison, Brooklyn, Nashville, Minneapolis, Chicago) and has been unleashing their crash course in genre-bending on stages worldwide since 2000. What other band can claim the honor of having their music spun by DJs like Questlove (of The Roots), working with hip-hop luminaries like Talib Kweli, having their original compositions performed by student marching bands and jazz ensembles around the globe, and still not be out of place at a punk festival? What other band brings together the ostensibly disparate worlds of the trombone geek and the backpack b-boy?  Youngblood has headlined countless tours in the States and abroad, selling out dates in over 20 countries.

They will be performing and also conducting a lecture here on the main campus of Mount St. Mary's University on Sunday, September 29 at 4:00pm in Horning Theatre.
