Camp HHC, the 8-week summer camp program of Helping Hands Center for Special Needs, welcomes the New Basics Brass Band to its playground for a concert and children’s parade, part of the center’s July 4th Celebration. This concert is being funded in part by a grant from the Henry E. Coyle Fund of The Columbus Foundation.

Helping Hands Center for Special Needs is a non-profit school and outpatient therapy center with a mission to serve the educational and therapeutic needs of children with Autism and other developmental disabilities. For more information, please visit www.helpinghandscenter.com.

Originally launched in 1995, the sousaphone-driven New Basics Brass Band layers Jazz, R&B, New Orleans funk, and groove sounds into its high energy live performances and recordings. The band, a staple in the Columbus music scene, recently released its 4th studio recording, “Ditties for Kiddies,” funded in part through a Kickstarter campaign. The CD features old favorites and original music that everyone will enjoy. For more information, please visit www.newbasicsbrassband.com.
