We're a growing community of second line brass band enthusiasts (brass, reeds, and drums) that meets most Sundays in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Our grassroots group also plays outdoor festivals, parades, parties, and other local gigs while covering a wide variety of music from pop, hip-hop, and funk to traditional Dixieland jazz to groundbreaking original charts!
Our community and its performance ensemble The L Train Brass Band is comprised of both experienced musicians and adventurous amateur players looking for something new and exciting in their musical lives. While you should have basic music-reading proficiency, we're open to all levels so long as you attend rehearsals regularly. There's plenty of room for creative collaboration and help with organizing practices, gigs, and arranging music. Let's grow together!
