ABOUT

We have been together for 10 years as a Pop and Praise music group whose charter is based on giving back to the community. We have performed for the Campbell Easter parade, a downtown San Jose homeless organization Easter Sunday meal, a Cystic Fibrosis conference in Redwood Shores, and many senior residences including The Terraces in Los Gatos, the Saratoga Senior Center, The Carlton Plaza in San Jose, and Cedar Crest in Sunnyvale. Many of the members have performed for a City Team Christmas dinner in San Jose as a brass ensemble.

Influences

The band was created to entertain senior groups at a couple local churches. The main musical influence of the group came from the Tijuana Brass music books that became the bands go-to for entertainment. As time progressed, the band integrated Christian music in our set lists. Prior to Covid the band was involved in a regular schedule for leading worship at local churches in the San Jose area.

Members Of Band

The band consists of a brass section, rhythm section and vocalist. All are serious players of various level of skills, but a high level of dedication. We pull from the SJSU music department at various times to find subs.

EQUIPMENT

We have basic equipment, a small PA system, mostly for the vocalists and a keyboard. The brass are sometimes mic'd but mostly play unmic'd.
