The Extraordinary Rendition Band
We are a street band of brass, reeds and percussion from providence, rhode island. we interrupt your regularly-scheduled life with spontaneous moments of raucous musical joy.
Innovative. Talented. Energetic. These words are often used to describe the members of the inventive band, Big Blitz. Based out of Pittsburgh, PA, the group was born from the musical genres of dance, rock, and jazz improvisation. This youthful, dynamic trio is comprised of Lucas Ciesielski (tenor and baritone sax), Nick Grabigel (drums and guitar) and Mason Ciesielski (tenor sax and synthesizer). Inspired by the sounds of saxophone-and-percussion-based bands known to busk in the subway stations of New York City, Big Blitz’s members write and perform their own original tunes which contain a powerful, electrified and hip sound. Big Blitz is guaranteed to transform any of your preconceived notions of the music that can be created by a saxophone-and-drum trio.
The Party Band
Your friendly neighborhood mass-brass punk-funk army from Lowell, MA. Homegrown, unadulterated, unplugged FUN.
Ghost Town pushes the boundaries of brass music into new territory. We keep the New Orleans street band vibe while also featuring high-energy tunes from pop, jazz, soul, hip-hop and more. Punchy, funky and rhythmic, we get people on their feet dancing!
The Scruffy Aristocrats
The Scruffy Aristocrats came together on the streets of Rhode Island in 2018. From making music for crowds at Water Fire, to popping up in Newport to play by the ocean. Thriving in energetic, playful and dance worthy music, the Scruffy Aristocrats are sure to have the whole house on their feet. Our Professional Mischief and Energetic style will be sure to bring a smile to all in earshot!
From The Jackson 5, the temptations and Mungo Jerry, to New Orleans style jazz, to funk, and a sprinkle of hip-hop, everyone’s musical tastes buds will be satisfied.
The KC Moaners were born in the late 1990's at a bluegrass jam deep in the woods of Northwest RI when guitarist Jim Chapin and percussionist Greg Andreozzi discovered they had a mutual affinity for Jug Band musicand the band has been entertaining audiences around Southern New England ever since with music that has a solidly authentic feel and a fresh and light-hearted approach tha makes for a rollicking good time every time out. Drawing on roots from old-time Blues, Jazz, Folk and Honky-Tonk sources, the band's blend of traditional (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, uke) and non-conventional (washboard, kazoo, jug, and washtub bass) instrumentation produces a free-wheeling, good-time feel that gets toes tapping and hands clapping every time.
