It’s big, it’s brassy, and if you want funky New Orleans parade music, here comes the New Line Brass Band.  Built in the tradition of Olympia, Treme,  and the Dirty Dozen, the New Line  Brass Band combines the talent and experience of the Dixie Power Trio with one of Washington/Baltimore’s finest horn lines.  The result is raw, fun, and full of energy.  Blending a mixture of traditional brass band standards, spirituals, zydeco, and original compositions, the group plays music with a loose vibe and a funky groove.

This DPT project band has been performing in various combinations since 1998.  They have appeared at the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage, the Great American Brass Band Festival, the 2000 Vice-Presidential debates, the Bluemont Concert Series, and in numerous smaller concert  settings and parades.  Their debut CD “Bad Spuds” has been acclaimed by the Washington Post, and has been heard in the feature film "Crazy Like A Fox" and the Warner Brothers TV show “Elimidate Deluxe” (we won’t vouch for the actual show, but we approve of their taste in music!).  The lineup includes bass player Andy Kochenour, drummer Byron McWilliams, guitarist Chuck Underwood and trumpet player/accordionist Zachary Smith- all members of the Dixie Power Trio.  The horn line consists of  a mix of D.C. and Baltimore pros, including  Dan Haverstock on trombone and Pete BarenBregge or Bruce Swaim on saxophone .

           These talented musicians feel at ease playing on the street or on stage, serving up the music of the people the way it’s supposed to be done--New Orleans style.
