The Brass Queens is a Brooklyn-based, 8-piece brass band whose music is deeply inspired by the New Orleans tradition, which influences their genre-spanning sound. Brass Queens features an all-female horn section with the goal of expanding the space for women in a male-dominated industry. Their rousing energy will have you swaying, dancing and toe-tapping!
