Event Description

Don't miss out on this opportunity to hear one of the most unique brass ensembles around, as they integrate elements from mutliple genres and styles that span many generations of music history.

"Trafficking in a free-flowing blend of jazz, hip-hop and Afrobeat, the group can resemble the world's funkiest marching band one minute, an unhinged New Orleans funeral procession the next."
- Los Angeles Times

HBE is seven brothers from the south side of Chicago who come from an extraordinary musical family. The band freely mixes the brass band tradition with generous doses of hip hop, soul and funk, creating an intoxicating and boisterous blend that is just barely contained on its newest release Fly: The Customs Prelude. HRE has toured throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and South America playing with everyone from Prince, Mos Def , Mick Jones (The Clash) and Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz).

The documentary film Brothers Hypnotic explores the brothers' music, work ethic, life and experience of being raised by their jazz legend father Phil Cohran. After screening in major cities and festivals, it aired on PBS. Their song "War" was featured in the blockbuster hit movie Hunger Games.

Charge-by-phone 260.424.5665 or in person at the STAR Bank box office at the Embassy.
