THE BRASSROOTS MOVEMENT

The BrassRoots Movement brings the international spirit of the brass band to Portland. They take the essence of New Orleans brass band styles — from trad jazz of the early twentieth century to the funky, get down styles of today's funkiest brass bands — and bring it to Portland, weirdest city in the USA, for weddings, parties, parades, christenings, birthdays, and funerals. All occasions, from the solemn to the flat out fun, are well served by a brass band! Catch them at the festival gates Saturday, July 1, and Monday, July 3.
