North Beach Brass Band

North Beach Brass BandThe mighty North Beach Brass Band takes over the venerable Bird & Beckett Books shop in Glen Park on Saturday January 30th.

San Francisco’s talented North Beach Brass Band is at once a traditional brass band playing early jazz and golden standards, and an electrified funky jazz act playing classic blues, Motown and soul tunes.

Band leader Ed Ivey, wielding his sousaphone like it’s weightless, takes this unit through classic grooves in the New Orleans tradition and forays deep into the bebop and funk realms.

North Beach Brass Band covers almost every American genre, from Louis Armstrong’s favorites to danceable covers of Seventies hits from legends like Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Reed, Buddy Guy, War, Hugh Masekela, The Meters, Jobim, and Miles Davis
