RELEASE DATE: 2007-12-04
Here at the fake offices we get dozens and dozens of demos a day, and really, it's so hard to send something that's just gonna make our crack staff of fake-music experts and interns stop dead in their tracks and say "holy shit, what the fuck is this?" But that's exactly what happened 3 seconds after Louis pushed play on the debut e.p from the eternal buzz band. and after dancing in the warehouse for the balance of the exquisite mix, i read up on them and it all made sense - RIGHT! Those guys - the crazy Brooklyn clue including old heads like Stuart Boggie (from Antibalas), Buford O'Sullivan(easy star all-stars), Cochemea Gastelum (Dap-Kings/Budos Band) and more.....
Take a hit and find the eternal buzz.

About the Artist
Hailing originally from Brooklyn, NY, The Eternal Buzz Brass Band is a Soul-Jazz-Meets-Chamber-Music Marching Orchestra, getting inspiration as much from rare funk grooves as from Charles Mingus or even Bela Bartok. Led by drummer/composer Geoff Mann, the band started in 1999 as a collective, playing funky jazz standards for tips on the streets of New York City. With the original lineup--Jordan Mclean, Aaron Johnson and Stuart Bogie (from the Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra), as well as preeminent Free-Jazz bassist Tom Abbs on the tuba--tearing things up, Geoff decided to co-opt the band as his own and bring the music into the clubs. Filling out the horns with Leah Paul and Matt Moon on tenor saxophones, Colin Stetson (Arcade Fire/Tom Waits) on baritone and bass saxophones, Eric Biondo (Davy Jones Band) on trumpet, Rob Jost on french horn and Buford O'Sullivan (Easy Star All-Stars) on trombone, they started out at spots like The Tea Lounge and Zebulon in Brooklyn and Pianos in Manhattan. Now with a rotating cast including recent additons Mike Williams on bass trumpet, Michael Leonhart (Steely Dan) on trumpet and Cochemea Gastelum (Dap-Kings/Budos Band) on Baritone Saxophone, the band's reach has extended around the Northeast, as likely finding the band at places like The Middle-East in Cambridge/Boston, Central Connecticut's "Summer Sounds" festival, Asbury Park, NJ on the 4th of July, or bringing up the rear of the Park Slope Children's Halloween Parade each year in Brooklyn. Their music has been in documentary and feature films and has been a favorite at local radio stations like WFMU, where they were presented in a live broadcast performance on Doug Schulkind's show, "Give the Drummer Some" ....and look out for an LA incarnation of the Eternal Buzz coming real soon as well.
