Review for LowDown Brass:
Headlining Friday is LowDown Brass band, a high-energy band from Chicago, Ill. This band is a driven group that melds modern funk, hip-hop, reggae and pop into their unique style. Brandishing a powerful brass, crunk frontline with a funky percussive backline, this band creates an infectious and diverse sound that improvises movement and grooves. The LowDown Brass band is constantly touring and performing throughout North America and are now touring with their 2018 hip-hop album Lowdown Breaks. The new album redefines their unique style by combining hip-hop breaks with live soul music and lots of dance moves.
