The Transcendental Brass Band is 7 piece group with the holy trinity of Trumpet, Trombone and Tenor sax, held down on the deep bottom end by the Sousaphone. Together with Street beat Drums, Percussion and Guitar, they fire up a soul inferno of infectious Funk!
Completely mobile and "acoustic" the band can go anywhere. The TBB bust's loose on the Concert stage and is perfect for Parades, Festivals, Celebrations and Special Events. ( We've done funerals too :) When it's time to party the TBB is ready to Get DOWN..
A touch of funk, a smidge of jazz, and some sprinklings of ska, hip-hop and freeform pop: It all adds up to a heady brew of horn-filled goodness. Make sure your dancing shoes are broken in for this show. The Oregonian
Willamette Week .. Transcendental Brass Band
[BRASSED OFF] In New Orleans, the Transcendental Brass Band could well be spotted on any given corner as street musicians—nine dudes blowing the kind of crazy, funked-out sound that provides the perfect soundtrack for swilling bourbon in the Big Easy. In Portland, they let 'em inside. Transcendental’s sound harks back to the glory days of brass bands while providing funkadelic basslines to get asses shaking. It’s a timeless sound, revamped into the present with an immediacy that makes it fresh as a steaming po’ boy.
