Fearlessly combining elements of James Brown, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, and Led Zepplin, the eleven members of No BS! Brass Band deliver a fiercely original sound that embraces the spirit of New Orleans into its original East Coast modern funk.

Founded by drummer, Lace Koehler and Bon Iver trombonist, Reggie Pace, nearly all of the band's members have had conservatory training,  holding various degrees in music.  "Brass Knuckles," their 6th, full length record is set to release November 20th, delivering a new round of dynamic, high-energy compositions that promise to get you up and dancing.  

"A hot, irrepressible blast of brass and canyon-like grooves." — Spin Magazine


“I like the No BS! Brass Band either way: kicking it with funk or clearing room for a screeching free-jazz solo. The point isn’t to redefine what a brass band can do, but that’s what No BS! achieves. From Virginia comes a storm of a brass ensemble that has decided it can do what it wants as long as it does it very, very well.” — Jim Fusilli, NPR - All Things Considered
