PitchBlak Brass Band
PitchBlak Brass Band is a Brooklyn-based 10-piece ensemble whose style and sound seamlessly synthesises 80’s hip-hop, contemporary pop, modern jazz, and big band combo instrumentation. As a artist’s collective, PitchBlak embodies the contemporary and vibrant undercurrents of the New York City hip-hop brass fusion scene. Feels, tempos, melody and textures shift seamlessly and this versatility, along with their deep grooves and tasteful solos, makes their live show a truly unforgettable experience.
PitchBlak has performed at such prestigious venues as The Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Bowl, Le Poisson Rouge, 92YTribeca, Southpaw, The Shrine, Toronto’s NXNE Music Festival, Savannah Stopover 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. Their debut album, You See Us, released in fall 2013.
