In the year 2010, a brand new sound was born. The Brass-A-Holics Band and the Go-Go Brass Funk genre joined the ranks of the time honored traditions, culture and music that have come out of the great city of
New Orleans, Louisiana.
The ensemble consists of the core New Orleans brass elements – trombone, trumpet, saxophone and sousaphone, but also adds a full drum set, percussion, keyboard, and an electric guitar, and this kick ass "Go-Go Brass Funk" band called the "Brass-A-Holics" comes to life before your eyes and ears. A Brass-A-Holics show is a singular experience. Where else can you hear Chuck Brown, Miles Davis, Nirvana, John Coltrane, Wham, Cyndi Lauper, Kanye West, and Louis Armstrong all in one set?
The band was conceived in the mind of the renowned Trombonist, Winston Turner, whose roots stem from the St. Augustine High School Marching 100, the Southern University Human Jukebox, The Pinstripes Brass Band, and The Soul Rebels Brass Band. He created the "Go-Go Brass Funk" genre with the goal of merging the unrivaled New Orleans brass sound with Washington DC's Go-Go groove and topping off his instrumental gumbo with a personal touch of keys and strings. This uniquely diversified band consists of 8 members: Winston Turner, Tannon Williams, Matt Clark, DJ Raymond, Keiko Komaki, Robin Clabby, Reggie Nicholas, and Dwayne Muhammad. Although there are differences in culture, style, and swagger within this band, the members of the Brass-A-Holics collectively bring to you a unified and unique sound that is unparalleled to anything you have ever heard!
Be warned that this sound is a powerful substance; both addictive and intoxicating. It is guaranteed that you will find yourself addicted to the Brass-A-Holic sound!
