Synopsis

Product Description
The 31-member Brass Band of Battle Creek has been described as an All-Star band of the brass and percussion world s elite, attracting great musicians from around the United States and Europe. The BBBC plays two annual concerts in Battle Creek, Michigan, as well as a limited number of other engagements in handpicked locations in the United States and abroad. Though rooted in the British brass band tradition, characterized by larger ensembles of strictly brass and percussion - no reed instruments or strings - the BBBC also weaves in American elements such as jazz improvisation, pops and swing, resulting in a hybrid style that makes the BBBC truly unique among brass bands. Founded in 1989 by brothers Jim and Bill Gray, podiatrists and amateur brass players from Battle Creek, the BBBC has grown to cult status in that city, where BBBC concerts are regularly sold out and waiting lists are created weeks in advance.
