Brassroots are an explosive 9 piece brass band formed by American trombonist Jerome Harper, whose mission in life is to establish a flourishing brass band scene in our nation?s capital.
In 2010 Harper took the band from strength to strength, setting stages ablaze from Scala to Glastonbury, London Jazz Festival to Lovebox, Secret Garden Party to the Grand Finale of Big Brother live on Channel 4.
Having independently released their self-titled debut EP in 2009 Brassroots have received global radio play from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Rob Da Bank and LA?s legendary KCRW. All this caught the attention of Canadian label DoRight! Music, who have just released the Good Life EP worldwide. It has topped the Jazz charts in NZ and Belgium and racked up a hefty 150 international iTunes chart appearances so far: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/good-life-ep/id398158212
With a sky-rocketing worldwide notoriety, Brassroots are currently enjoying a residency at one of the coolest arts venues around. On the second Wednesday of every month Rich Mix plays host to the utterly diverse (and utterly FREE!) ?Brassroots Presents? where the band showcase new acts before taking the stage themselves. An illicit love triangle between Michael Jackson, Gnarls Barkely & a whole load of horns....
