Relentless drums, rumbling tuba, and wailing horns…nothing kicks the party into high gear like a smokin’ brass band! Now you don’t have to trek to New Orleans to catch second-line fever – the Bay Area’s own BRASS MONKEY BRASS BAND (BMBB) brings the infectious energy and funky good times to the West Coast and beyond. BMBB is a powerhouse 7-piece in the style of New Orleans’ own Dirty Dozen and Rebirth Brass Band, with the traditional lineup of tuba, saxes, trumpets, trombones, bass drum and snare. BMBB’s wide repertoire ranges from New Orleans classics like “When The Saints Go Marching In” to danceable favorites by a variety of artists from Led Zeppelin to Roger & Zapp, plus their own irrepressibly funky originals The band has played countless festivals such as the Monterey Jazz Festival, “New Orleans Day” at the Concord Pavilion with John Fogerty and Dr. John, Blues by the Bay (Eureka, CA), and the Rhythm & Roots Festival (Santa Rosa, CA). While the band’s musical chops earned them the coveted slot performing an impromptu set with Bobby McFerrin at the SFJAZZ Festival in 2002, BMBB’s universal appeal made the band the perfect choice for the San Francisco Giants to have the band play Opening Day at Pac Bell Park. In 2006, the band was asked to be part of a monumental night at the legendary Hollywood Bowl (Hollywood, CA.). The “New Orleans Night” bill included the long-awaited return of the original members of The Meters, The Neville Brothers, and Brass Monkey. You can hear their music here on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/brass-monkey-brass-band/29800972 The target audience is music fans that are into New Orleans' Brass Band music, funk, jazz, big band, jam bands, etc.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
This would be the CD artwork for a 4 panel CD digipack. Band name: Brass Monkey Brass Band Album name: Sonic Ranch Wanting something in the spirit of designer, Jim Flora and his album cover art illustrations of the 1940's and 1950's. Sonic Ranch actually refers to the name of the recording studio where the album was recorded outside of El Paso, TX. which is actually a functioning pecan orchard / farm as well. The buildings have an old southwest adobe / hacienda look (see the casita-sonic-ranch.jpg) I would like it to be PLAYFUL and to be based mainly on the attached flora-CodaCover.jpg where we would have the instruments (and perhaps musicians) of the brass band (marching bass drum, snare drum, sousaphone, trombone, trumpet, saxophones) filling up the inside of an adobe farm house, while there is "Sonic" imagery eminating from the farm house. So images of a ranch, the Southwest, farm, pecan trees, or other images reflecting the word "sonic" like soundwaves or speakers / microphones would be welcome as well. I am interested in bright colors. Thank you for checking out this project.
Attached here are some examples of his work that I like and a photo of the band that would be on the inside of the 4 panel digipack. One of the inside panels would be a photo of the band - IMG8780.jpg The other photos attached are so you can see what the band looks like with their instruments. Extact content is still being finalized and will be uploaded asap.
