The Tivoli Discovery Series is pay-what-you-want with a suggested donation of $10.

The New Breed Brass Band will take the stage at the Weinberg Center for the Arts on Thursday, April 5 at 7:30pm as part of the theater’s Tivoli Discovery Series. The New Orleans inspired brass band infuses funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop into a custom-made enhancement of second-line brass band tradition. The performance continues the Weinberg Center’s Tivoli Discovery Series, which presents emerging artists of varying genres.

The Tivoli Discovery Series is pay-what-you-want with a suggested donation of $10. Tickets may be reserved in advance at WeinbergCenter.org, by calling 301.600.2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick Street. Tickets will also be available at the door.

With a founding core of five New Orleans natives, New Breed Brass Band made its street debut as a nine-man unit in November 2013. Since then, they have showcased their originality opening for such diverse bands as The Fray, Red Baraat, Dr. John, The Waterboys, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, as well as competing in the Red Bull Street Kings brass band competition in 2013. Most of the members have been playing music since they were toddlers and count such New Orleans legends as James “12” Andrews, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, Topsy Chapman, Karl Leblanc, and Bruce “Sun-pie” Barnes as family members. Honing their childhood experiences playing music with their families, and on through high school marching bands and concert ensembles, the members of New Breed are united to one cause: rocking each show and entertaining audiences to the maximum degree possible.

The Tivoli Discovery Series is sponsored by the Tivoli Society of the Weinberg Center for the Arts. A complete listing of artists and performers scheduled for the 2017-2018 season can be found at WeinbergCenter.org.
