Featuring the New Orleans Brass-a-holics horn section with special guest Lil’ Sammy & the Funked Up Daddies
We invite you to join us on the waterfront at Sousa Memorial Bandshell for a fun evening of New Orleans infused music. We are thrilled to once more be presenting Lil’ Sammy and the Funked Up Daddys alongside their special guests the New Orleans Brass-A-Holics horn section!
Lil’ Sammy and the Funked Up Daddys are a rag tag NY band from Long Island, and one of Port Washington’s favorite local talents. The Funked Up Daddies are a cover band and damn proud of it, covering all facets of Rock and Roll: they can funk, rock, wail blues and get a room full of people shaking their tail bones.
They will be joined by their good friends from New Orleans, the Brass-A-Holics horn section!
Since 2010, the Brass-A-Holics have been taking their unique sound around the world. Steeped in the deep musical culture of New Orleans, the band brings a heavy dose of go-go funk to the New Orleans brass sound. In a blending of musical cultures stemming from cities separated by more than a thousand miles, a Brass-A-Holics live show takes the New Orleans brass band culture and infuses it with the electricity of Washington D.C.’s go-go. The resulting sound is both captivating and unique. The band consists of core New Orleans brass elements -trumpet, trombone, saxophone- and adds a full drum set, percussion, keyboard, bass and electric guitar, giving the band limitless options to explore new sonic territory. Whether performing their original music or using the framework of hit pop songs as springboards for fiery improvisations, there is something in the set to appeal to every music fan. Once the music starts, the demographics blend and a brand new experience is created – one that leaves one-of-a-kind memories that live on long after the last note.
The Brass-A-Holics recently recorded a live album and mixtape at The House Of Blues in New Orleans.
The most recent project is Word On The Street: The Live Video Album.
In case of rain, this event will be moved indoors to the Jeanne Rimsky Theater.
