2/12/2017 - NEW DATE: 08/15: The Funky Dawgz Brass Band

Summer Concerts on the Square:
The Funky Dawgz Brass Band

The Funky Dawgz Brass Band are one of the premier touring acts on the live music scene today. Emerging from Connecticut, these young men have engulfed the spirit and traditions of New Orleans as well as earned the respect from local musicians who grew up and reside in the city. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself during a show as they play a contagious upbeat mix of traditional New Orleans R&B, original music, hip hop, funk, and today’s top hits with a brass twist.

They have toured internationally and have been featured in all corners of the live music scene. From playing sold out shows at Madison Square Garden as the horn section for Dispatch, to Camp Bisco, to closing out The Peach Music Festival, their performances flow seamlessly from EDM festivals to jam band festivals to traditional New Orleans second line parades.

When the band is not playing shows, they are giving back to the community. The Funky Dawgz aim to connect, engage, inspire, and rejuvenate music education in inner city schools across the country. The band frequently gives performances and master classes to young musicians in elementary, middle, and high schools across the region.

This performance is made possible with the generous support of UConn First Summer.

 

 

The Summer Concerts on the Square are free and open to the public.

Visitors are welcome to bring a blanket or a small lawn chair. Visitors may purchase refreshments at one of the many great downtown restaurants. Alcohol and all tobacco products (including vaping) are prohibited.
