Asheville, NC-based BrassFunkRock band Empire Strikes Brass has a lot to say with a big sound. Chock-full of serious groove from a thumping rhythm section highlighted by lush horn arrangements played by a thick horn section, the band’s compositional roots as well as its creative soul contribute lots of depth in their original tunes and covers that speak volumes to ESB’s evolution.

Founded in 2012, ESB has grown from a party band playing NOLA-originated second-line and funk tunes to a collective of players and producers who have found an original sound while still holding true to their foundation.
