You may be thinking ‘oh… another Brass Band from New Orleans’ but you’re wrong; No BS! are from miles away – from Richmond, Virginia in fact. Started in 2006 by Bon Iver member trombonist Reggie Pace and drummer Lance Koehler this 11-piece band incorporate funk, soul, and hip-hop into the more traditional jazz of old. This year they have released two albums: ‘RVA All Day’ (a funk-fueled experience featuring a storming cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’) and ‘Fight Song’ a tribute to jazz legend Charles Mingus. Both are real treats for the soul.
Lead single for the album ‘RVA All Day’ hits you with an irresistible mix of dirty horns, raw percussion, shouts and raps that grip you from the get go – this is the real shizzle!!
