New Basics Brass Band Returns To Casa Saturday

On Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016 New Basics Brass Band returns to Casa Nueva Cantina in celebration of their 20th year as a band. They will bring their unique brand of New Orleans jazz and funk for a night of “get down.” Whether reinterpreting others (James Brown, Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair) or showcasing their originals, New Basics Brass Band causes a mix of happy feet, cold sweats and genuine awe at how the band can be so progressive yet authentically traditional at the same time.

Columbus compadres The Wet Darlings will open the show.

In the heart of a heart-shaped state, The Wet Darlings were born in Columbus, Ohio in 2008. Guitarist Bill Patterson, who entered musical puberty via Van Halen, met singer Jenny Lute, who started a prodigious vocal career as a teen belting out gospel standards in a rural Ohio church. The band is rounded out with genre-hopping percussionist Aaron Bishara, and bassist/synth player Joe Patterson.

After releasing two EP’s, being named in Columbus Alive’s annual “Bands to Watch” issue, regular regional radio play and roughly a half-million plays on Spotify of their single “Bicycle”, the band delved into the studio to record their first full-length album. Two years later, they emerged with Beautiful Things.
