“Hypnotic Brass Ensemble are one of a kind. Graced with soul, funk, and spirituality these guys have captivated audiences worldwide. Their music is a combination of all genres. With the undeniable drive of hip-hop, the freedom of rock and the melodic thread of R&B these guys are nothing short of unique.
All band members are the sons of legendary Sun Ra trumpeter Phil Cohran. The group began performing together as children (some as early as 3 years old). In 1999 they formed what is now known as the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and have performed or collaborated with some of the greatest musical stars of the last two decades. From Mos Def to Maxwell, Wu Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah to UK superstar Damon Alburn, Erykah Badu to Fela Kuti’s drummer Tony Allen. If you don’t know these guys you’re missing out.”
