Project Description

Soda City Brass Band

Dominated by a muscular horn section, the Soda City Brass Band from Columbia, South Carolina is a New Orleans-style groove machine, sounding like the next logical step in a tradition that includes bands like the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the immortal Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Onstage, the band is a real crowd-pleaser, mixing old-school Big Easy classics with their own more forward-looking originals. In a typical Soda City set, you might hear anything from “When the Saints Go Marching In” to a Trombone Shorty tune, and trumpet player and co-bandleader Mark Rapp says that’s just how they want it.
