The Perseverance of Sound – Music and Arts Festival
March 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The Music and Arts Festival is going to have some swing this year! The Red and Black Brass Band are going to be doing double duty- sharing their wonderful energetic sound via recorded performance and through a live online interview, providing the origin story of their band and what it has been like to provide music in a pandemic. Please join us we celebrate, remember, and imagine through sound and connection.
The Red and Black Brass Band was created in April of 2020 after Ben Kosberg (bass horn) and Dominque Burton (trombone) took to the street to cheer up the neighborhood. 2.5 million Twitter views later, the band was formed. A dream that had been fueled and talked about for years by the 8 members of this creative ensemble became real and R & BBB has been on the upswing ever since. Born out of a pandemic, the goal was what it will always remain; to bring love and joy through the spirit of music and to help us all remember that we still have much to be grateful for.
The Red and Black Brass Band quickly became highly recognized by many in the great city of St. Louis, MO and were always met with smiles, dancing feet, and tears of joy. The blend of powerful horns and smooth singing with an array of music genres over a New Orleans Second line beat sets this band apart from many as they pay homage to the music so deeply embedded for most of its members, since birth. “We just want to have some fun and make the people feel good. We’re available for any occasion. Come and party with the Red and Black.
