Brooklyn natives, High & Mighty Brass Band are thrilled to release the first of their two part EP and second effort, "KREWE YORK: PART I" on Friday, July 24, 2015. Recorded almost completely live to capture the true essence of their show at The Bunker in Williamsburg, NY, the EP will showcase 4 original tracks and a classic cover tune. The EP features music written by the band's drummer and bandleader, Evan Howard as well as an interlude by trumpeter Ivan Jackson. The single "Acid Washed Jeans" was written spontaneously composed by the group in a parking lot of a community college! The EP will mark the first recording with the band's new lineup and will feature sounds from Disco to Trap.

Recorded on a 24 track / two-inch Studer tape machine, "KREWE YORK: PART I" was captured almost completely as a single live performance, with very few overdubs. Recorded and mixed by engineer/bassist John Davis and mastered by, Kevin Blackler, the EP features the full nine piece band.

High & Mighty Brass Band is like no other brass on the scene today. The high-energy party band has shared the stage with music legends, Dr. John, Snarky Puppy, Cyril Neville, Trombone Shorty and Galactic just to name a few. Don't miss the band on their West coast tour this month where they'll be making stops in Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Eugene, Bend, Portland, Seattle, Bellingham and Whistler, BC. KREWE YORK: PART II will be released later in this year.
