No BS! Brass Band
No BS! Brass Band
No BS! Brass, based in Richmond, VA, takes the New Orleans brass band into uncharted territory; fearlessly combining elements of James Brown, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin into their fiercely original sound. Trained in the conservatory and hardened in the garage, No BS! Brass has performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, the Festival of New Trumpet Music, Lockn festival, and on National Public Radio's Tiny Desk Concert. Equally at home in the club or on the parade route, in the concert hall or on a festival stage, No BS! Brass creates new believers wherever it goes.

"I like the No BS! Brass Band either way: kicking it with funk or clearing room for a screeching free-jazz solo. The point isn't to redefine what a brass band can do, but that's what No BS! achieves. From Virginia comes a storm of a brass ensemble that has decided it can do what it wants as long as it does it very, very well." Jim Fusilli, NPR – All Things Considered
Darla
Darla
Darla is an 8-piece progressive funk group from Philadelphia. The band’s sound is a melding of its raw origin in the Philly basement scene and keen compositional focus on feeling the groove. At its core, the Darla sound is driven by a powerful horn section that wields a lyrical and catchy sense of phrasing. Their efforts are matched by a jarring and methodical rhythm section that has been described as ‘Steely Dan with Dave Grohl on drums.'


Since forming in 2014, Darla has shared the stage with the likes of Snarky Puppy, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, George Porter Jr. (of The Meters), Kamasi Washington, and Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles. They have released six EPs to date, including their latest release "Darla Rolls The Dice!", out now on Phil's Records. Darla is ready to share their funk across the eastern seaboard with shows & festival appearances lined up for the rest of 2017.
