Euphoria Brass Band
Euphoria Brass Band is a San Diego based musical collective that serves up a contemporary mix of old school New Orleans traditional brass band jazz, funky street beats, new school edginess with a West Coast feeling!
Embracing the exciting spirit of improvisation with a hard funk edge, Euphoria Brass Band has become known for their incendiary high energy shows…. guaranteed to get a crowd smiling, dancing and having a good time. EBB always leaves ‘em wanting more!
In 2012 they released their first CD “Coast To Coast” which was nominated for a San Diego Music Award. 2013 saw a second release called “In Step With Tradition” and a nomination for “Best Jazz Artist”. Both releases found National radio airplay on stations like San Diego’s KSDS Jazz 88.3 fm and New Orleans WWOZ. Their highly anticipated third release, “EBB & Flow” just hit the streets and this one really burns!
EBB was created in 2011 by two New Orleans transplants, Ron Bocian and David Bandrowski and local jazz radio DJ, Drew Miller. They quickly assembled a top notch, hard-hitting horn section: Steve Ebner (trumpet), April West (trombone), David Jackson (tenor sax), JP Balmat (baritone & alto sax, clarinet) and Wayne Rice (sousaphone). Euphoria Brass Band is proud to have been nominated 4 years in a row for various San Diego Music Awards since their inception in 2011!
