Ynot Wednesday feat. BrassWind

Presented by Southern Auto Group
Conceptualized by a group of mostly local band directors in February of 2017, BrassWind was brought to life nearly one year later in January of 2018 in Williamsburg, Virginia. 

A band the likes of which Hampton Roads hasn't seen in a very long time... a band revolving around real horns and horn band music. Since 2018, the roster has evolved and the scope of genres & styles has grown making BrassWind the most eclectic party band around. 

BrassWind is comprised completely of retired & active-duty military, in addition to some of the original charter-member band directors who have remained. 

Though the roster and genres/styles have changed, the mission has always been the same: to bring back good quality music to Hampton Roads and beyond, and to do it the right way. The way it was meant to be done, with an incredibly gifted rhythm section, real horns, and exceptional vocals! We like to call it, "Grown Folks Music."
