“we are cooking audio gumbo…our special recipe includes some funk, jazz, hip hop mixed with brass band traditions spiced up with African and other world rhythms… MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE!”
Underground Horns is a Brooklyn based brass band playing Afro Funk Bhangra New Orleans grooves and beyond.
Their second album BIG BEAT (2010) was reviewed by Ken Waxman in The New York Jazz Record calling them “an unapologetic party band with brains…with tonal inflections from the Big Easy, central Africa, the Maghreb and the Baltic states”.
Underground Horns performed internationally in Egypt, Germany and most recently at Tudo é Jazz in Brazil, stateside at the Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival, NYC Winter Jazz Festival and Dizzy’s (Jazz at Lincoln Center), sharing the bill with Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and B.B. King.
In the big city they make people dance in subway stations, parks and at their club dates at nublu, the Blue Note and Brooklyn Bowl, among others.
