Exclusive 2018 Event Showcase – The Performing Arts Center is bringing a powerhouse blend of New Orleans traditional jazz, marching band flair and funk bravado to New Philadelphia.
New Basics Brass Band is a show you won’t want to miss. The group will take the Performing Arts Center Stage on Saturday, January 13th at 7:30 p.m.
The group continues to receive rave reviews from many.
“A five-horned rampaging monster, NBBB’s seamless blend of New Orleans traditional jazz, marching band heroics and fun bravado has placed them in a genre of one in the capital city music scene.”
“…You’d have to have a pitch-black heart not to get sucked into NBBB’s infectiously joyous ruckus, laid out tight and skillfully with a jazz band’s flair for expression and precision. Whether reinterpreting others (James Brown, Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair) or showcasing their originals, NBBB causes a mix of happy feet, cold sweats and genuine awe at how the band can be so progressive yet authentically traditional at the same time…”
-Mike Breen – Cincinnati CityBeat
“In person, the band members are affable, modest groups of musicians. On stage, the six strike a mix of relaxed showmanship and impressive technique. Arrangements are executed with close precision, solos are passed on and received with deliberate confidence. All this leaves the listener with a sense of cool professionalism.”
Tickets for the Saturday show start at just $33.
