Don't miss this ear-bending collaboration of funky New Orleans jazz and bluegrass when local favorites New Basics Brass Band and The Relentless Mules join forces on stage for “Brass & Grass.” Taste how the common ingredients of gospel, blues, swing, and improvisation stir together into this tasty, toe-tapping gumbo.
Whether reinterpreting others (James Brown, Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair) or showcasing their originals, New Basics Brass Band causes a mix of happy feet, cold sweats and genuine awe at how the band can be so progressive yet authentically traditional at the same time. The Relentless Mules are four of the drivin'est young acoustic musicians you'll find in central Ohio – their banjo-less bluegrass draws generously from the classic songbooks of Flatt & Scruggs, The Osbourne Brothers, Bill Monroe, and Reno & Smiley, among others.
