Since 1995 New Basics Brass Band has been sharing sousaphone-powered feel-good music to Central Ohio and beyond. From the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & SXSW to private celebrations & festivals, NBBB brings New Orleans sounds with a Midwestern twist.
The past two decades have burnished the band. After hundreds of live shows, four studio albums, and recording with legends like Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Bootsy Collins, New Basics is in prime form. New Basics Brass Band’s fourth studio recording, Ditties For Kiddies, is a collection of fun, funky, children- oriented “ditties” that grown-ups love listening to even when the kids aren’t around.
They have done what few bands succeed in doing- enduring. And while navigating the ebbs & flows and twists & turns, they have remained excited to do what they’ve done since day one: sharing Feel-Good music.
