Pitchblack Brass Band at Tropicalia

Doors 8PM
Showtime 9PM
PitchBlak Brass Band is a Brooklyn-based 10-piece band whose style and sound represents hip-hop from the 1980s to present day. A collective of young musicians, composers and artists, PitchBlak embodies the contemporary and vibrant undercurrents of New York City. PitchBlak’s members have incredibly diverse musical backgrounds, allowing them to infuse hip-hop driven music with funk, rock, jazz and classical genres, resulting in a style as fresh as their dreads, shades and dashikis—rich brass harmonies, lyrical hooks, tongue-twisting raps, and rhythms that make your blood race.

PitchBlak has performed at such prestigious venues as Brooklyn Bowl, Le Poisson Rouge, 92YTribeca, Southpaw, The Shrine, Toronto's NXNE Music Festival, Vermont’s legendary Nectar’s, Albany’s Red Square, and took home first prize at the 1st Annual Bob Stewart Tuba Competition. In addition to performing live, PitchBlak trains and mentors young musicians in community outreach programs and classrooms throughout the country.

PitchBlak is set to release its debut album, You See Us, in fall 2013.
