The ROP Q&A: New Sound Brass

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of experiencing my first New Sound Brass performance at Underground Arts. This soulful music collective has been jamming together and creating a magical musical space for audiences since 2012. Mixing mummery, gospel, and jazz, the band best describes themselves as Philadelphia spoken through brass and beats. We got to chat a bit with New Sound Brass after the show and decided to feature them in The ROP Q&A.

Rock On Philly: How did New Sound Brass initially come together?
NSB: We knew each other from various bands and decided to get together and see if we could do something different

ROP: What is your mission as a band?
NSB: Our mission is to play good music, have fun, and develop a Philly brass sound- a new sound.

ROP: How does it feel to see the crowd at Underground Arts dancing like crazy and cutting loose to your tunes?
NSB: It’s the biggest compliment you can have as an artist and it humbles you.

ROP: What do you love most about the Philly music scene?
NSB: Its richness in history.

ROP: When is your next show?
NSB: Our next show is Saturday, September 12th in Camden at 2nd & Cooper, Johnston Park. We’ll be playing with Big Sam’s Funky Nation.
