Born on the streets of Asheville, NC, Empire Strikes Brass has been exciting fans around the world with their unique and dynamic approach. Since their formation in 2013, ESB intentionally stretches the boundaries of the stereotypical brass band paradigm, fusing sounds from around the globe. Arrangement and the writing process is a collaborative band effort, taking multiple genres of music and weaving them together through the horn section. The diversity present is what makes ESB unique. Expect face melting guitar solos, soul shaking synthesizer solos, lush vocal harmonies, powerful moving drums, thick nasty bass, hypnotically rhythmic keys and wall to wall horn power. Very few brass bands are able to fuse so many styles and array of technique into their work, but Empire Strikes Brass makes it happen again and again.
