DuPont Brass x Everyday Everybody Ugly Sweater Holiday Party
About this event
City Winery Washington DC presents Everyday Everybody (fka AZTEC SUN) / DuPont Brass Holiday Party live in concert on Wednesday, December 14 at 7:30 PM.
DC-based band Everyday Everybody (fka AZTEC SUN) has been performing since 2012, producing an upbeat, retro groove steeped in ‘70s Funk and Soul, Jazz, Afro-funk and Motown-era pop. Their sound and energetic live performances have yielded numerous rewards for the group – such as being named Best Local Original Band by the Washington City Paper, named Best Funk group by the Washington Area Music Association, profiled in the Washington Post and sharing the stage with international and national touring acts such as Burning Spear, The Suffers, Cory Henry, Durand Jones & The Indications, Cedric Burnside and others. They plan to release their second full-length album in fall 2022.
DuPont Brass is a one-of-a-kind, brass-driven supergroup from the D.C. Metropolitan Area. Originally composed of five music majors from Howard University trying to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season, they have grown to a 9-piece ensemble consisting of brass, a rhythm section, and vocalists. Gaining popularity from playing at local Metro stations, DuPont Brass started professionally playing for weddings, banquets, and other private events in the surrounding area. Thanks to the foundation laid in their earlier years, DuPont Brass has had the opportunity to perform in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival, The Washington Performing Arts Society, The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, and The National Cannabis Festival. Recently, they made their local television debut on WHUT’s “DMV the Beat” on PBS. Through their training in classical and contemporary styles, DuPont Brass has developed a sound they’ve coined “Eclectic Soul” that mixes varied genres of music, including jazz, hip-hop, and R&B.
