PitchBlak Brass Band
PitchBlak Brass Band will capture your body and make you move! This ten-piece NYC based hip-hop brass band was formed in the fall of 2010. Since then, PitchBlak has been dedicated to entertaining audiences throughout NYC with their unique sound.

PitchBlak draws upon its many members' musical backgrounds and infuses their hip-hop driven music with funk, jazz, rock and classical music. The result is a sound rich with luscious brass harmonies, intense with
thoughtful raps, and energetic with grooving rhythms.
