COCEK! BRASS BAND is the brainchild of trumpet player Sam Dechenne. The band performs original music by Dechenne based on the sounds of Eastern European brass bands. They are a 5-piece group (2 trumpets, trombone, tuba and bass drum) that rocks the house on a very regular basis. The band’s members come from internationally touring ensembles like John Brown’s Body and Itzhak Perlman and bring a blend of dance music with stellar improvisation and melodies that evoke crazy dancing, contemplative thoughts and good times.
FUNKRUST BRASS BAND is a twenty-piece brass band founded and led by songwriter, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Phil Andrews (Rude Mechanical Orchestra, Gay Panic, Apocalypse Five & Dime). Funkrust was born in a basement in Ridgewood, Queens in November of 2014. Their sound stems from a unique blend of punk, disco, EDM, metal, funk, Balkan brass and New Orleans second line. Featuring snazzy uniforms, choreography, megaphone vocals and all original compositions they are a sight not to be missed.
INDUSTRY CITY DISTILLERY makes a Vodka from Beet Sugar Molasses– taking 30 cuts from different temperatures, each with its own unique flavor profile, blending them together to bring you INDUSTRY STANDARD. In house Gin, Vermouth, Fernet, Hops Absinthe, Limoncello and Spiced Whiskey all made from TECHNICAL RESERVE.
