The L Train Brass Band (LTBB) serves the NYC community by providing a truly unique, engaging—and most importantly, fun—experience for adult musicians of all experience levels. This nonprofit community organization is composed of nearly 100 diversely talented musicians who are genuinely excited by the opportunity to play anywhere and everywhere, covering a wide variety of music, from pop and hip-hop—to funk and traditional NOLA jazz—to eclectic original charts. LTBB embodies a music for life ethos by empowering busy adults to pick up an instrument and make music within a safe, structured environment that promotes creative self-expression and welcomes individuals from all musical backgrounds and walks of life.

Brasswick 2021 Music Festival is an annual celebration of community, creation, growth, and brass music. The Festival will feature the live music and creativity of local brass bands while celebrating the diversity of the greater Bushwick community through various local vendor and live art collaborations.
