Back in Town: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

May 1, 2011

Strolling about in Union Square yesterday I bumped into one the most talented bands of our time, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.  One of the musicians passed me a flyer promoting their release party this Tuesday, May 3rd at the NYC venue SOB’s

According to their website, the eight brothers from Chicago’s south side “came up with their name after an incident on the El: playing on the platform, a man in a suit watched them for hours, missing train after train, till in the end he walked up to them and said, ‘You guys just hypnotized me'”.  Indeed, you will be too if you catch one of their live shows.  Don’t miss out on the perfect blend of  “jazz roots” and “hip hop sensibility”*.  This brass band is like nothing you’ve  experienced before.  The show starts at 9:30pm, doors open at 8pm and tickets are $15 if you purchase in advance or $20 the day of the show.
