Halfbrass is Nashville's own funky brass band! Born under the influence of classic New Orleans tradition, Halfbrass mixes traditional brass band music with funk, jazz and rock. In its first year, Halfbrass was named a "Top 5 Local Band" by The Nashville Rage.
Halfbrass' core members are Kevin Rimmer (trumpet), Chris West (saxophone), Oscar Utterstrom (trombone), Neil Konouchi (tuba), and Justin Amaral (drums).
Since their debut in 2002, Halfbrass has continued to spread their brass sound to audiences across the country. The band is a hit at events such as weddings, parties, corporate functions, and even backyard crawfish boils. They have performed for groups including The Nashville Roller Girls, Tomato Art Fest, The Food Network, ASCAP, Berklee College of Music, and Vanderbilt University.
Halfbrass has recorded and played with national & local artists including Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Bekka Bramlett, Christina Watson, Old Union, and Greg Barnhill.
When you're ready to party, Halfbrass is there. “Laissez les bon temps rouler!”
To additionally tie in with our charities mission we have invited the Nashvile B Cycle program to be on site. Nashville B-cycle is an innovative new bike-share initiative that will make 190 durable urban bicycles available to rent at 20 automated kiosks. Nashville B-cycle makes it economical and convenient to use bikes for trips that are too far to walk but too short to drive. Nashville B-cycle tracks mileage and calories burned, as well as the carbon offset of each trip, making it easy to demonstrate the health and environmental benefits of bike-sharing to Nashville.
We thank everyone who is willing to volunteer time to help make this a successful event. We love all of our amazing volunteers. AT THIS TIME ALL SLOTS ARE FULL. Thank You
The “No Beer Left Behind” campaign began at the first East Nashville Beer Festival. The goal of this campaign is to educate and enhance all festival attendees’ knowledge and passion for craft beer. We take several angles to create this campaign, with the first being that as many breweries as possible are represented by a brewery employee. We also are very lucky that our local distributors are knowledgeable and fill the gap if a brewery employee is unable to attend. Finally, the icing on the cake, we invite several brew masters to the events to participate in speaking engagements, meet and greets, and educational seminars. Brew masters featured have included Linus Hall of Yazoo Brewing, Spike Buckowski of Terrapin Beer Co., and Mark Thompson if Starr Hill. The 12 South Winter Warmer will include a return of some of these brew masters as well as others!
