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 raps iconic live bands, to deliver an energy that samples, loops and breakbeats cant 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.

Anchored by interlocking electric guitars and rock-solid grooves and topped off with soaring vocals and two horns, Blair & Company combines rock, funk, and a healthy dose of improvisation to create fresh new music for both your head and your feet. Members of Blair & Company have performed with Grace Potter, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Frankie Valli, FUN, in Broadway pit orchestras, and in countless other local, regional and national acts.
