The LowDown Brass Band feat. Ricky B. *45 Release Show!*
The LowDown Brass Band feat. Ricky B. *45 Release Show!*
LowDown Brass Band is at it again. This time, Chicago­-based LDB strikes short and sweet, and with laser focus, on their upcoming 45 LowDown Bounce, featuring New Orleans Bounce legend Ricky B. LowDown has been crafting their unique sound for over 12 years and, with their collaboration with Ricky B and seminal Bounce producer Bigalow, show no signs of stopping anytime soon. This ain’t no rusty trombone folks.

Half straight-­up bounce, half down­tempo head­-bopper, LowDown Bounce was conceived back in 2014 when LowDown was asked to back Ricky B at an in-­store performance at Logan Hardware. By now, they’ve practically moved in together, LDB firmly representing the tradition of brass street bands and Ricky B as a pioneer of New Orleans bounce. Let’s just say that everyone’s invited to THIS party. LowDown Bounce features Bigalow’s remix of “You Know Me” (Loiselle, LowDown Sounds), a classic bounce track in truest sense, and “Ponder This,” co­written by David Levine of LDB and Ricky B. Bottom line, this album kicks.

And while it was once rumored that the legend Ricky B was dead, he has continued to be living proof that BOUNCE is still alive and kicking. Warning: High Energy. Prepare to sweat.

The Heard
The Heard is a Chicago-based band venerated for its deep pocket, authentic groove and reverence for legendary funk. The group is known for turning out hot, sweat-drenched sets that stretch into the wee hours every Thursday night at live music Mecca aliveOne.

The Heard has delivered hard hitting performances at some of Chicago's top venues, including the Metro, Lincoln Hall, and the Congress Theater. The group has backed former Galactic vocalist Theryl "Houseman" DeClouet and has shared the stage with national acts Dumpstaphunk, Dragon Smoke, The Mike Dillon Band, and Passafire; in the Spring of 2013 the group supported three dates of Slightly Stoopid's national tour.

The Heard's music features powerful horn melodies delivered with precision and swagger by Adam Gross (trombone) and Lucas Ellman (saxophone), the driving and funky chicken-scratch rhythm guitar playing of Taras Horalewskyj, tasteful and creative keyboard work by Neal O'Hara, and a slamming, lock-step rhythm section comprised of bassist Mike Starr and drummer Reid Muchow.
