Event Details

If you want to see the South Bay Woodwind Band, you’re in the wrong place, but if you want to see the East Bay Brass Band, then it’s your lucky day! Join this all brass all the time (there’s a drummer too) New Orleans-style brass band, as they blow their way into your hearts at Brick & Mortar Music Hall.

Featuring the Junkadelic Brass Band, from down under, SambAmore, (that’s Samba + love), and Environmental Encroachment, a marching band meets variety show.

Brass Band Lineup

East Bay Brass Band is a SF Bay Area, New Orleans-style brass band that specializes in mash-ups of popular artists from Jelly Roll Morton to AC/DC to Raymond Scott to Paula Abdul to Shostakovich to R.E.M.

Junkadelic are going to share their unique and eclectic sweet melodic sound, which is a blend of street rhythms, Jazz – New Orleans style, funk grooves, hip-hop, dashed with a Latin flavour and infused with a 1960s, 1970s influence.

Samba + love = SambAmore. That’s the derivation of the name for Arcata’s drum/dance/music ensemble, a 10- to 25-piece outfit that came out of the even larger Brazil/Mardi Gras-inspired Samba da Alegria that plays at the North Country Fair. Jesse Jonathan founded the group around five years ago starting with samba and drawing on influences beyond, including Afro-Cuban, African and Middle Eastern rhythms and music.

Performance art group Environmental Encroachment is a costumed marching band with multi-media stage performance antics, including dancers, hooping, juggling and skits and has performed at Lollapalooza, Burning Man and the Chicago World Music Festival.
