The LowDown Brass Band will take the Bankers Trust Stage at NewBo City Market on September 10, 2021. This concert will be the final of four in a new free concert series, presented by CSPS in partnership with NewBo City Market.
Just across the street from the Market, CSPS Hall is known as Eastern Iowa's center for contemporary art, music and theatre. This free concert series will feature traveling artists from across the country.
The LowDown Brass Band is a uniquely strong representation of Chicago Music culture. This talented all horn band leans heavily on dancehall and street beat rhythm, with the energy of conscious hip hop, jazz, reggae, and soul.
Fresh off their headlining set at The 2019 Montreal Jazz Festival, LowDown maintains a constant performing and touring schedule throughout the globe. Recent performances include the World Music Fest, Vancouver Jazz Fest, Lagunitas Beer Circus, Chicago Jazz Fest, Frendly Gathering, Alaska’s Salmon Fest, Chicago’s Do-Division Fest, Wicker ParkFest, Wakarusa, and Cotai Jazz Fest.
Following an ambitious project titled LowDown Sounds, that included a critically acclaimed cameo by Roy Ayers on the track Everybody Loves The Sunshine, LowDown Brass Band is now touring their 2018 hip hop release titled LowDown Breaks featuring MC Billa Camp. This new record steps deeper into refining their unique sound, combining hip hop breaks with live soul samples and deep cut grooves.
The LowDown Brass Band will play at Rock the Block on Friday, September 10, starting at 6 p.m. These concerts are free and open to the public.
This event is made possible by the support of Coldwell Banker Hedges Realty and GreenState Credit Union.
