About the event

Brass Queens is a New York-based brass band that is female-led and  features an all-female horn section. Finding that they shared similar  frustrations about the emerging brass band scene in the city,  co-founders Alex Harris and Ally Chapel came together to form a group  dedicated to showcasing the talents of female musicians in a landscape  that was dominated by male musicians and bandleaders. After debuting in March 2019, Brass Queens grew to be a  fixture in the New York music scene and was even dubbed "the hardest  working band in town" by their peers. The Queens gained a dedicated  following through busking on the streets of Brooklyn and playing pop-up  events in tight-knit communities. Even the pandemic couldn't slow them  down, as the band found ways to still bring music and joy to their fans  during quarantine. Since then, Brass Queens has gone on to play iconic  venues like Blue Note Jazz Club and Brooklyn Bowl, as well as major  events like The Met Gala, Governor's Ball Music Festival, Exit Zero Jazz  Festival, Good Morning America, and more. Brass Queens has developed a signature sound that sits  right at the intersection of the Big Apple and the Big Easy: their music  is deeply inspired by and pays homage to the New Orleans brass band  tradition while injecting the upbeat, multifaceted energy of their New  York home into each performance. The result is a nonstop party: a Brass  Queens show will have you singing along to classic pop hits, dancing  your heart out to reggaeton, and feeling like you've been transported to  Frenchman Street. In February 2021, Brass Queens released their debut  EP Royal Street on all streaming platforms, and the band is currently working on their first full-length album.
