“Trafficking in a free-flowing blend of jazz, hip-hop and Afrobeat, the group can resemble the world’s funkiest marching band one minute, an unhinged New Orleans funeral procession the next.” – Los Angeles Times

Hypnotic Brass is a seven-piece, Chicago-based brass ensemble consisting of the sons of the jazz trumpeter Phil Cohran of Earth, Wind and Fire fame. Together, they have toured throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa & South America playing with everyone from Prince, Mos Def, Mick Jones (The Clash) and Damon Albam (Blur, Gorillaz). They’ve performed Coachella, WOMAD AU, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall. Their song “War” was featured in the blockbuster hit movie, The Hunger Games. And now, for the first time, they’re touring the US. Don’t miss the “Bad Boys of Jazz” as they bring their distinctive blend of traditional jazz, hip hop, reggae & rock.

Hypnotic Brass Ensemble was born in the south side of Chicago in the early 1990s as the Phil Cohran Youth Ensemble. Dissolving due to the hardships of growing up, the band reformed in 1999 as Hypnotic Brass and has since been blowing the minds of its audiences all around the world.
