SMOKIN BEATS & Smoked Out Soul Present: LowDown Brass Band, Jazz Mafia + J Boogie
SMOKIN BEATS has teamed up with the legendary Smoked Out Soul crew to bring you a night with LowDown Brass Band. Support from Jazz Mafia and J Boogie.
– LowDown Brass Band –
LowDown Brass Band (LDB) deftly synthesizes the gritty sounds of Chicago with the high energy second-line street beat of the Crescent City. LDB brandishes a powerful brass frontline of trumpets, trombones, saxophones, with a funky backline of drums and sousaphone. Combining the poetic ferocity of Billa Camp with stellar vocal harmonies, adventurous improvisation, movement, and grooves, LDB creates an infectious and diverse sound that has something for every listener.

YBCA 25th Anniversary "This is Not a Gala" event feat Heaviest Feather, Vau De Vire Society and more
This is not a gala. It’s circus acts, burlesque, hip-hop, drag, live music, DJs, booze & bites, all-night dancing, and much more.
On Saturday, March 30, 2019, YBCA celebrates its 25th Anniversary. There will be no sit-down dinner, no long speeches, no formalities. This will be an evening of irreverent revelry: a surprising, inclusive, and joyfully immersive celebration of community, the kind that can only be made at YBCA. This is a party with a purpose.
Every dollar raised will make it possible for us to continue to be the creative home for youth, artists and other change makers who move us to think, to feel, to question, and to act.
Let’s raise a ruckus, raise the roof, and raise some money.
Tickets $150 - $25,000
