Element Brass Band
Second line music is most common in New Orleans, but with the efforts of groups like the Element Brass Band, second line is reaching appreciative audiences well beyond its traditional boundaries. Second line music is being played both nationally and internationally. Element Brass Band is the premier brass band in Sacramento, CA and one of the few authentic second line bands on the West Coast! EBB have toured New York, Atlanta, and New Orleans and performed at many, many clubs including The Fillmore, The New Parish, Club Amnesia, the Boom Boom Room, Ace Of Spades, the Starlight Lounge, the Shady Lady Saloon. Element has opened for the likes of Giza (Wu-Tang Clan), Blackalicious, Andy Frasco, The California Honeydrops, Turkuaz and many others
Grand Avenue Soul was started in Oakland in 2013 by drummer Mike Bond. Originally meant to just be a vehicle to entertain audiences and expose them some lesser known Soul B-sides, the band developed a wonderful chemistry and became a full time project.
The band draws heavily from the catalogs of Motown, Stax, and Atlantic Records for inspiration for it’s set lists. In addition to well know Soul gems the group also incorporates B-sides and lesser know “album cuts” from the 1960’s and 70’s to keep things fresh. At a Grand Avenue Soul show there’ll be songs you’ll know and songs you NEED TO KNOW! Come out to a show and experience some seriously great music from Oakland’s own GRAND AVENUE SOUL!
