Getting their start performing as a pick-up band in the May Day Parade, The Brass Messengers are truly a band of best friends, who have been playing together in some form for the past two decades. From parades to rallies to national festivals, the band is atypical from other brass bands, with a joyous sound and a range of influences including Balkan and folk music. Educators' Guide
