🎺🌱πŸŽ₯πŸ“Ή On the job site this morning with Jim from the Rosendale improvement association brass band and Steve Duffy from every brass band in the world at the Mike Kingston kids 5-year anniversary parade in midtown Kingston.

Thank you all who came out! It was a super super super fun morning. It felt like we were in New Orleans! Lots of smiles all around.

We wish we could stay for the carnival and the circus but we are heading to Brooklyn to play an 8-hour wedding today!

Smooches to all! You make life great with your art, spirits, enthusiasm, musicality, creativity, energy, and vitality.

🎺 🌱 Come play, dance and hang with the good people from DuffsRV @duffsrv on Friday Night at Seed Song Farm @seedsongfarm in Kingston!

Steven Duffy @stevendduffy is a tuba/sousaphone player in NYC, as has performed with Jon Batiste, Red Baraat @redbaraat, Brass Against @brassagainst, High and Mighty Brass @highandmightybrass, Shag Horns @shag_horns, Raya Brass Band @rayabrassband, West Philly Orchestra @wpobrass and more.

In the summer of 2021, Steve started to throw parties and invited his friends to jam and eat burgers on the streets of Brooklyn.

DuffsRV was born.

With a makeshift stage out of open back door, a recording studio and a musician's green room with a bar and kitchen, DuffsRV has become THE place where brass musicians meet and play and get to know each other in secret hideaways around the country.

Steve and his friends Darius Christian @darius_christian and Nora Nalepka @noranalepka will call tunes that the majority of those who show up to play can jam on.

Come with your friends, family, kids, bandmates, dance partners! Everyone is welcome!Β  Drummers and singers get a special super welcome!

🎺 🌱 Why did the name of the annual brass fest in Kingston change from Brassroots to Brazzamatazz? 

It didn't! 

Between 2018 and 2021, the Hudson Valley Brassroots Festival at Seed Song Farm @seedsongfarm was co-created, co-developed and co-produced by Francesca Hoffman @francesca_hudsonvalley and Matthew β€œMax” Fass @matthewfass.

In mid 2021, Francesca and Max realized they could no longer work together peacefully on the Brassroots Festival due to artistic differences as well as different working styles and long-term visions for the future of the festival.

With the help of a mediator from the Dispute Resolution Center @drc_ny in the Hudson Valley, the two co-creators and co-producers negotiated a split of festival assets and parted ways in early 2022.

There are now two great brass-centric festivals in the HV, @brazzamatazz and @brassrootsfestival.

The Brazzamatazz Festival @ Seed Song Farm will take place on July 23, 2022.

Dates for Brassroots TBA

### Thank YOU!

We would like to thank the performers, sponsors, volunteers, vendors, Seed Song Farm and the folks who have attended our past festivals for your incredible support and outpouring of love that has made the Hudson Valley a mecca for brass.

All of you have helped in one way or another to make the last four years a huge success. (Please pardon if we missed some). We look forward to seeing you again at future festivals!

We would be happy to answer any other questions you might have.

🎺 🌱 TONIGHT in Kingston, NY! Excellent lineup at @tubbyskingston with @arnoldhammerschlag, @jimyanda, @free.bass with opener @darius_christian playing trombone and electronics.

SWDYT V.2 
Arnold Hammerschlag / Jim Yanda / Rashaan Carter + Darius Christian
SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022
6:00 PM  9:00 PM
TICKETS EARLY SHOW!

Tubby's Kingston
586 Broadway
Kingston, NY 12401
Map: https://www.tubbyskingston.com/
Website: https://www.tubbyskingston.com/

The second installment of So What Do You Think? at Tubby's Kingston, featuring trumpeter Arnold Hammerschlag with guitarist Jim Yanda and bassist Rashaan Carter working as a drummer-less trio, and Darius Christian performing solo -- trombone, electronics, voice, and whatever else he might bring to the table. This will be a night focused on local/area musicians and it should be wild.

Tickets are being sold advance for $10, which in this case is the same as the door cost. But it doesn't hurt to grip your spots early -- and as always, every cent goes to the musicians.

β€œFurther definitions of new music, composed, free, and in between. Occasional journeys into the maelstrom, tempered by Hammerschlag's eye of the hurricane trumpet classicism.”
-- Andrew Freund (5/4 Jazz Magazine)
