PitchBlak Brass Band



Biography

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.

In addition to performing at prestigious venues such as Brooklyn Bowl and 92YTribeca, 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.
