NO BS! BRASS Bio…
NO BS! Brass is a Richmond, Va.-based band combining the spirit of New Orleans with original compositions and arrangements of pop/rock hits from the ’70s and ’80s in an eclectic, virtuosic, and rowdy package. Members of No BS Brass have been trained in the conservatory and in the garage band and draw their inspiration from every conceivable source including funk, jazz, klezmer, Led Zeppelin, calypso, and delta blues. Founded in early 2006 by trombonist Reginald Pace and drummer Lance Kohler, NO BS! Brass has quickly gained a reputation as one of the finest area bands, performing at Richmond area clubs, galleries, and festivals. They have produced and recorded their Debut album “Where is Stefan?” and just recently…their ambitious-red hot sophomore album” ALIVE IN RICHMOND!!!
Verbatim is a distress beacon from a distant galactic civilization. The trombone laments the battle between a peaceful people and the invading marauders while the drums hammer out the encoded coordinates of the home planet. This is a story forged in the stars and told in sound.
