Underground horns & Brown Rice Family Holiday Party



Underground horns

 

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. AllAboutJazz called their 2009 debut record FUNK MONK "kick-ass dance music…that brushes up against psychedelia…with shots of funky brass juice."
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" and on their third record ALMOST BLUE (2014) they were "expanding the sonic range while never leaving the groove behind." (Sam Spokony, The Villager)
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, Lincoln Center and various Jam Band Festivals, 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. They also have been playing as a marching band, namely at the spectacular NYC Village Halloween Parade.

Brown Rice Family

 

Brown Rice Family is today's freshest world roots band jamming towards global solidarity and organic happiness. Guided by a strong belief in the natural flow of things, BRF provides the masses with a distinctively organic World Roots Music, which encompasses reggae, hip-hop, dancehall, afro beat, jazz stylings, rock, brazilian, Latin, and funk.
The band is presently comprised of eight members hailing from all over the world---Japan, Jamaica, Haiti, Nigeria, South Africa and USA. The members' diverse national backgrounds set the stage for their unique coexistence, their musical creativity and dance. The BRF sound is in the truest sense of the words, World Roots Music. The Brown Rice Family vibe is similar to Fela Kuti’s, but if Bob Marley and Antonio Carlos wanted to get on board for a gig, they would. BRF's colorful sound waves will carry rhythm surfers on a musical journey that straddles ancient and contemporary global sounds. BRF firmly believes in self-improvement and environmental improvement, and so the collective is perpetually seeking out healthier ways of living, grooving, and eating.  And this belief is not only in their music, it stretches out into the crafting of the band-made “Brown Rice Family soap”. This soap is made of the most natural ingredients available from organic farmers and suppliers. 
BRF took Japan by storm during their summer 2014 tour, wowing hundreds who watched them during their live performance in Tokyo and Osaka. "BRF is bridging cultures together while creating a fun atmosphere within improvisation. Amazing...," wrote Vogue Japan. 
In tradition with BRF’s positive contribution to music and the world, the band is teaming up with Carnegie Hall’s Professional Development Series with a music program that’s geared towards improving the lives of NYC’s incarcerated youths.
