The Euphoria Brass Band is the latest musical force to be reckoned with in San Diego. Part New Orleans tradition and street beats, part West Coast attitude and flow….and a lot of love! Created in 2011, when two longtime New Orleanians, David Bandrowski (banjo/guitar) and Ron Bocian (snare drum) who now call San Diego home, had an idea to build a New Orleans style brass band on the West Coast.
The idea came to fruition when they approached KSDS Jazz 88.3’s “Second Line Parade” host Drew Miller (bass drum) with the idea. Through Drew’s connection with some of San Diego’s top horn players, soon Euphoria Brass Band was born. EBB boasts a top shelf horn section: Steve Ebner (trumpet), April West (trombone), Dave Jackson (tenor sax), JP Balmat (clarinet, alto and baritone sax) and sousaphonist Wayne Rice holding down the bottom. With reverence to tradition while bringing the unique multi-layered modern street sounds of New Orleans and letting the Southern California vibe shine through, Euphoria Brass Band is an undeniably unique and exciting musical force! Join the parade drenched in the sweet tones of Euphoria Brass Band….coming soon down a street near you!
