The South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center has coined this Bold and Brassy Week, with three contrasting styles of brass performances planned at two local venues.
First, Extra Crispy Brass Band will be at the South Milwaukee Downtown Market this Thursday, September 17. This is a New Orleans-style Brass group with high energy and an old-school, New Orleans swing style. They will be performing from 5 to 7 p.m.
Then, the PAC kicks off its 2015-16 season with a show by Boston Brass at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 19.
Boston Brass is internationally regarded ensemble whose members have performed with the world’s top orchestras and recording artists, and have earned a reputation for delivering highly entertaining concerts with their delightful sense of humor. It’s an audience participation event, as patrons can vote on their favorite songs to be played in the second half of show.
Also, be sure to stop by the pre-show social event starting at 6:30.
For sale will be light snacks, and there will be pre-show entertainment by saxophone player Aaron Gardner and guitarist Steve Peplin, a jazz improv duo.
