Black Tie Brass is a horn driven jazz funk band. Most of the band has been playing together in one way or another since 2008 and formed BTB is 2013. We released our first self-titled album after a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014. We combine some of our favorite funk tunes with arranging pop songs in our own way along side our own originals. We want to keep you dancing and singing a song when you walk out. Black Tie Brass has been the backing band for numerous acts from Nick Tangorra to Robbie Rosen to Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti. BTB arranged, produced, and performed on Sal Valentinetti’s “The Voice” EP which hit #1 on the iTunes and Amazon Jazz chart and hit #2 on the Billboard Jazz chart.
Neon Jazz: Black Tie Brass is an example of how jazz is alive and thriving in New York City .. and across America. The hunger of
youth, the talent of experienced young musicians and their ability to meld together a truly unique, 21st Century jazz sound that
would make the giants of the old school jazz Jedi council proud .. These cats are here to stay and will thankfully evolve into a
much deep, aged cuppa jazz drink. Cheers to Black Tie Brass ..
