Weapons of Brass Destruction

Back in 2014, bandleader Tom Carlson - a newcomer to Eau Claire - noticed that despite all the great musicians in EC and the fact that it's a real river town with a French name, there were no street bands playing New-Orleans-style brass music. He selected an elite group of players to create just such a band, to give folks a high-energy, fun-filled musical experience, whether indoors or out. A few traditional tunes are included for nostalgia's sake, but the core of this group's music is funk, R&B, and soul - all with the flavor of the Big Easy. Don't miss it.

Comprised of Tom Carlson (bandleader, trombone, vocals), Jennifer Hazen (vocals), Pat Hull (trumpet), Stuart Wallace (trumpet), Jeff Reitz (reeds), Jay Collins (Bari sax) Phil Huebner (Tuba), Levi Felling (drums), John LeBrun (aux. percussion)
