Euphoria Brass Band was established in San Diego in early 2011. Loving the old school New Orleans traditional brass band jazz and street beats, new school brass band edginess with a West Coast feeling, two longtime New Orleanians Ron Bocian (snare drum) and David Bandrowski (guitar/banjo) yearned to build a New Orleans style brass band on the West Coast. The idea came to fruition when they approached KSDS Jazz 88.3’s “Second Line Parade” host Drew Miller (bass drum) with the idea. Drew was acquainted with some of San Diego’s top horn players, soon Euphoria Brass Band was born. EBB boasts a top shelf horn section: JP Balmat (clarinet, alto and baritone sax, composer), Steve Ebner (trumpeter), April West (trombone), Dave Jackson (tenor sax),and sousaphonist 'Tuba' Wayne Rice holding down the bottom. With reverence to tradition while bringing the unique multi-layered modern street sounds of New Orleans and letting the Southern California vibe shine through, Euphoria Brass Band is a unique and exciting musical force in Southern California! Look for their third release of mostly original music coming in time for Mardi Gras 2014!
