Inspired by the unconventional music of the Youngblood Brass Band, a group of high school friends formed the Ten Man Brass Band in the summer of 2011. The members winter over in other bands, but return and reunite for the Seattle summer. Ten Man’s genres include riot jazz, acoustic multi-phonics, and street brass. Their sets consist of covers of brass specific songs, arrangements of popular music, and original charts. You can hear them at Folklife Festival, Honkfest, Bite of Seattle, and Bumbershoot. Whether it’s a gig at an elementary school or busking at the Capitol Hill Block Party, they love to play and share the power of brass.
