Free, 7pm show
LowDown Brass Band is thrilled to announce the release of Mini Reels #10 (Glorious) and the full Reel Sessions EP on their label Dibs Records.
LowDown Brass Band Reels are short song and visual ideas that are 2-3 minutes in length. LowDown Reels are meant to be thought provoking and straight to the point. LowDown Brass Band has hosted the “Reel ” series for bi-weekly releases via all DSP’s and Social Media since January 2021. They are now touring the Midwest, Northwest, and Alaska to support the release with performances at Salmon Fest, PDX Jazz, Shangri-La Fest, Midsommar Fest, Levitt, and more.
When we first came up with the idea for the “Mini Reels” we thought it was just a good way for the band to stay active and create content consistently through the pandemic. We also saw the “Mini Reels” as a way to express our ideas and opinions on the times we live in. Looking back at the experience I realize all these things happened but in actuality the most important thing that occurred was growth. The growth of us as individual artists and human beings but also our growth collectively. We become stronger and more focused through the journey of creating and releasing 1 New Song and a Music video for that song every two weeks, it’s no easy task. It pushed us to the limits creatively and personally when deadlines and fast turnarounds were staring us square in the eye, we had no choice but to deliver or go back on our word. The “Mini Reels” are a testament to the transformative power of art and how important it is to our development as human beings, individually and collectively.
