About

The Blasting Company is a collective of musicians inspired by the neighborhood brass bands of Eastern Europe and New Orleans, whose music binds their communities as much as it unbinds their spirits. Whether on the street, in a living room, or at a modern venue, the Blasting Company has always relied heavily on live acoustic performance – tubas, trumpets, accordions, and marching drums while maintaining a porous barrier between band and audience. The group aims to evoke the sense of intimacy and communion that is still alive in these deeply held musical traditions.
