Undertow Brass Band (FKA What Cheer? Brigade) is a brass band from Providence, RI, USA. They prove that great parties need no electricity.
“Thrillingly competent, with undimmable energy…an explosion of good cheer.”
– The New York Times
Since 2005, the band has been as likely to appear at community benefits as at all-night parties, playing bars, clubs, streets, libraries, cemeteries, weddings, bus stops, and playgrounds.
They’ve played with Blondie, Dan Deacon, Man Man, Japanther, Dengue Fever, Okkervil River, Lightning Bolt, Ninjasonik, Mika Miko, Wolf Parade, Matt and Kim, Slavic Soul Party, Javelin, Sage Francis, and Chain and the Gang.
They’ve appeared at Lollapalooza, The Newport Folk Festival, Aarhus Festuge (Denmark), Sziget (Hungary), and Guca (Serbia), offering mobile moments of intense revelry.
They’ve actually played at the Fifth Maine Museum once before and no one who was there has ever forgotten it!
We’ll have a grill going so you can replenish your energy and quench your thirst! You’ll need it!
Get ready for some fun!!
