Bhangra @ The Bean

Bhangra Brass CabotThe Big Bang Bhangra Brass Band is making a Burlington debut at Radio Bean this Saturday Feb 22 (10pm).

What started as a new side project, has become a more regular thing . . . . well  a kind-of-regular-thing.

I’ve started writing some original material for the group which has opened up some new sonic-doors.  When I first formed the group I was transcribing and arranging an entire set of Bollywood and Bhangra music for an ensemble that had yet to rehearse!  Luckily, it all worked out nicely, however as the group continued to rehearse and perform I began to recognize the pros and cons of the material.  By writing original material for the band, I can throw some emphasis on a variety of new instrumental combinations and timbres.

So come on out to Radio Bean this Saturday Feb 22 at 10pm to hear the latest.
