Best Reuse of Old Marching Band Instruments 

The Revolution Brass Band

Marching brass bands raise a ruckus at just about every high school around, but you never hear a peep from them in adult life. At long last, a bunch of overgrown kids have channeled that fat sound into a funk band that plays out at area bars. They specialize in an aggressive jazz-, Latin-, and afro-beat-inspired brand of second-line funk that makes it damn near impossible to sit still. And amps? They don't need no stinking amps: These horns are plenty loud on their own. Their repertoire includes arrangements of standards, plus plenty of their own compositions. Check them out in the front room at Edison's (2373 Professor Ave. in Tremont, 216-522-0006, the last Sunday of every month.
