Blended with keys and strings, Brass-A-Holics' Go-Go Brass Funk genre combines the unrivaled New Orleans brass sound with Washington DC's Go-Go groove. Such an innovative musical practice has landed the band a feature on The Grammy's ReImagined Series and performances at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, D.C. Jazz Festival and New Orleans French Quarter Festival. Watch Brass-A-Holics cover Paul Simon on Grammy.com, here: http://bit.ly/1awvKUx
Brass-A-Holics was conceived in the mind of the New Orleans' most celebrated trombonist, Winston Turner. Taking his years of experience playing in The Soul Rebels Brass Band, Turner brought together top members from fellow renowned groups like the To Be Continued Brass Band, New Birth Brass Band, Marva Wright and The Wild Magnolias, to form the 8-piece powerhouse he's always dreamed of. Along with Turner, this uniquely diversified band consists of Tannon Williams (trumpet), Robin Clabby (saxophone), Jason "Slick" Slack (bass horn), Matt Clark (guitar), Keiko Komaki (piano), Dwayne Muhammad (percussion) and Rickey Caesar (drums). Although there are differences in culture, style, and swagger within this band, the members of the Brass-A-Holics collectively craft a unified and unparalleled sound. With excitement brewing over the upcoming album, Clabby explains, "It's been 3 years in the making and we are excited to finally get this project out to the world. We're ready to welcome all newcomers to the Brass-A-Holic Nation!"
Be warned that this sound is a powerful substance; both addictive and intoxicating. It is guaranteed that you will find yourself addicted to the Brass-A-Holic sound!
