PitchBlak Brass Band

Hip Hop music has always been unafraid to push boundaries. Perhaps because it simultaneously came from nothing yet came from everything, the genre stands alone in how creatively outside influences can be incorporated into its musical mix.

PitchBlak Brass Band uses the epic sounds of tubas, trombones, saxophones and other typically non-hip hop instruments in the spirit of The Roots and some of rap’s iconic live bands, to deliver an energy that samples, loops and breakbeats can’t always capture. Their blend of soundscapes and lyrical exuberance creates a grand adventure in listening, one that can hold the attention of music fans from across a fairly wide spectrum.

MCB-Free & The Ice Coast Band w/ special guest Learic

In only their second live appearance together, two of Vermont’s most prominent MC’s, MC B-Free and Learic, will be combining with some of Vermont’s most renowned musicians. MC B-Free has been performing with the Ice Coast Band for 3 ½ years. The group was founded by MC B-Free, Bryan Berg, Ryan Clausen, Max Bronstein, and DJ A-Dog. Since Andy’s passing, various musicians have come together to continue the Ice Coast tradition. In this show, they will be joined by Learic, Chyce, Kelly Ravin (Waylon Speed) on guitar, Giovanni Rivetto on bass, Tyler Mast on keyboards and Caleb Bronz on drums. MC B-Free (VT Union) and Learic (The Aztext, Write Brothers, The Precepts), who collectively have opened for the likes of Bassnectar, YG, Wu-Tang, Bone Thugs, Spearhead, Snoop Dogg, KRS ONE, and Brother Ali, will be trading off as MC’s, while the band collectively interprets songs from their combined catalogues.
