Local New Orleans’ inspired brass band The New Basics Brass Band and local bluegrass band, The Relentless Mules will combine forces for an evening of musical collaboration on Saturday, April 26th at the Lincoln Theatre as part of the Jazz Arts Group’s “Inside Track Series”. Full details from the Jazz Arts Group:

Local favorites New Basics Brass Band and The Relentless Mules will join forces to present Brass & Grass. Brass & Grass is an ear-bending collaboration of funky New Orleans jazz and bluegrass. The group will present an evening of collaborative tunes to showcase how the common ingredients of gospel, blues, swing, and improvisation stir together into a tasty, toe-tapping gumbo.

Whether reinterpreting others (James Brown, Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair) or showcasing their originals, New Basics Brass Band causes a mix of happy feet, cold sweats and genuine awe at how the band can be so progressive yet authentically traditional at the same time.

The performance will be held at The Lincoln Theater, 769 E. Long Street in Columbus at 8 pm as part of Jazz Arts Group’s Inside Track Series.

Tickets are available at www.jazzartsgroup.org/insidetrack. More information about Brass & Grass ia available at www.newbasicsbrassband.com/brass-grass.

About The Relentless Mules
The Relentless Mules are five of the drivin’est young acoustic musicians you’ll find in central Ohio – dobro, banjo, mandolin, guitar, and bass anchor the sweet three-part singing of the band’s energetic and heartfelt vocalists. This truegrass band draws from the classic songbooks of Flatt and Scruggs, The Osbourne Brothers, Bill Monroe, Reno and Smiley, among others.
