No BS! Brass Band
No BS! Brass Band
How often do you see horns like that? How often go to a venue where it’s not only acceptable but encouraged to wear the band’s shirt, shirts they’re also wearing on stage?

At every No BS! Brass Band concert.

Founders Reggie Pace and Lance Koehler rejected the BS of other ensembles to create something original. The band’s diverse members bring a blend that reflects its steadily growing, all-inclusive fan base.

Rising out of the renaissance of Richmond, Virginia, this big band with a big sound brings slamming, funky, danceable tunes ranging from original pieces to homages to Charles Mingus, Led Zeppelin, Rush, A-Ha and Michael Jackson. The distinctive “Richmond sound” No BS! brings strips away preconceived notions of brass bands with energetic horns, drums and tuba laying down grooves from hip-hop, jazz and rock.

From small, intimate venues to the Kennedy and Lincoln centers to the roof of Forbes to crowds of 20,000 at the Eaux Claires festival, No BS! takes its music into uncharted territory, bringing down the house in the process.

For their next act, No BS! is bringing a sixth album this fall that pushes their boundaries, as far as difficulty. The mostly conservatory-trained musicians have laid down 11 tracks of deep grooves reflecting current events and how they feel as artists in the world today.
Flor de Toloache
Flor de Toloache
Latin Grammy® nominated female band, Flor de Toloache continue to win the hearts of music fans both mainstream and traditional mariachi fans alike through their distinct vision and enlightened interpretation of traditional mariachi instruments. The band’s diverse ethnicities and musical backgrounds are transcending culture and gender by forging new paths for mariachi music. Like the legendary Toloache flower used in Mexico today as a love potion, the ladies of Flor de Toloache cast a spell over their audiences with soaring vocals and physical elegance. The New York City based band and first all-women Mariachi, is led by co-directors Mireya I. Ramos, (founder) on violin and Shae Fiol (original member) on vihuela, the band also features Julie Acosta on trumpet and Eunice Aparicio on guitarron. Accolades continue to build for Flor De Toloache. Nominated for a Latin Grammy® in the Best Ranchera Album category for their self-produced debut album Mariachi Flor De Toloache, they have graced international stages from Asia to Europe and the U.S., recently supporting Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys new side-project, The Arcs. A promising career lies ahead for these graceful starlets.
