Party Horns NYC

Saturday, March 24, 2012, 7:30 pm to 7:45 pm

Party Horns NYC returns to move, groove and disprove what you know about party music. A trio of evenings featuring 3 very different ensemble bands, (Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, Brooklyn Qawwali Party and Dead Cat Bounce) all full of beat, rhythm and good time fun straight from the NYC music scene. It's music that will stir your soul and certainly move your feet.

Dead Cat Bounce
has been the unique artistic vision of founder and composer Matt Steckler since 1997. Word of their high caliber performance has brought them to festivals and concerts nationally, and garnered distinctions from Chamber Music America, Boston Music Awards, Jazz Times, The Washington Post, and many others.

On tour to promote their fourth full-length album Chance Episodes, DCB invokes Charles Mingus and the World Saxophone Quartet with four saxophones of all ranges plus upright bass and drums. 

Their eclectic approach to rhythm is informed by traditions from the Caribbean, Deep South, Brazil, West Africa, Eastern Europe and Detroit. In DCB, solo and collective improvisations energetically complement the poise of its ever-expanding compositional repertoire.

Dead Cat Bounce’s members are on the cutting edge of today’s jazz, rock and world music scenes and have performed and/or recorded with: Dave Douglas, Steve Lacy, Ray Charles, Lonnie Plaxico, Roswell Rudd, Matt Wilson, Anthony Braxton, John Tchicai, Michael Cain, Pheeroan Aklaff, Curtis Fowlkes, Melvin Sparks, Leroy Jenkins, the Either/Orchestra, Miracle Orchestra, Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra, Mango Blue and others. 

To boot, DCB’s lineup is comprised of great bandleaders in their own right, offering a heady combination of musicians both self-taught and mentored under such renowned artists as Danilo Pérez, Jerry Bergonzi, George Garzone, Jim McNeely, Bob Moses and Cecil McBee.
