DuPont Brass Is Bringing Their ‘Eclectic Soul’ To Hyattsville (& The World) This Friday


This Friday, D.C. area-based collective DuPont Brass will be liberating their new album Eclectic Soul, of which they’ve described it’s meaning and background:

Simply put, Eclectic Soul is a millennial musician’s anthem. Growing up as a music student in the 90’s and 2000’s, we’ve spent time diving into the music of the past and the present from all over for our entire lives. From the classical and jazz techniques acquired in theory classes to the Kendrick Lamar in our iPods, this album is a culmination of everything we’ve picked up on our musical journey. This album is dedicated to everyone who loves music, from swing to soul and everything in between. More than anything else under the sun, we are the ones who will help to change the heart of this world that we live in because we find the most common ground in the only universal language.

Added to that, the band will be celebrating Eclectic Soul‘s release on the same day, and will be joined by the likes of Deacon Izzy, Desmond Stone and more. It’s not to be missed!

More about DuPont Brass:

DuPont Brass is a unique, soulful, brass ensemble hailing from the D.C. Metropolitan Area. Originally composed of five music majors from Howard University trying to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season, they have now grown to a 8-piece ensemble consisting of brass, a rhythm section, and vocalists. Gaining popularity from playing at local Metro stations, DuPont Brass started out professionally playing for weddings, banquets, and other private events in the surrounding area. Thanks to the foundation laid in their earlier years, DuPont Brass has had the opportunity to perform in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival and on the prestigious Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. Consistently touching the hearts of the community with their heartwarming testimony, DuPont Brass has been featured on WPFW’s “Live at Five” three times and featured in the Washington Post Newspaper five times. Through their training in both classical and contemporary styles, the young group has developed a sound that mixes varied genres of music, including jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. Their latest release entitled Eclectic Soul is a testament to that sound. Overall, the mission of DuPont Brass is to uplift the spirits of people with their music, not just in the DMV area, but across the world.
