The Angel City All-Star Brass Band

The Angel City All -Star Brass Band is a 20+ piece horn and percussion ‘banda’ comprised of the finest Los Angeles musicians performing cumbia, afrobeat, jamaican, soul and more… Todd first started out the ACASBB as a strictly studio project recording at Woody Jackson’s Vox Studios live, direct to tape (see photos here). But LA keeps craving the sound since the ACASBB has performed at events such as headlining the City of LA/Music Center/Grand Park 4th of July Block Party, Subsuelo, Levitt Pavilion (MacArthur Park) KCRW’s 2013 Halloween Masquerade Ball, the Red Bull Music Academy’s This City Belongs To Me Series and the World Stage/Leimert Park Kwanzaa Festival. The ACASBB debuted its first recording on a special compilation released by the German Jazz & Milk label in 2014.

Members of the Angel City All -Star Brass Band have contributed their talents to the following: Kendrick Lamar, Aloe Blacc, Beastie Boys, Lukas Graham, TV On The Radio, Kelis, Quadron, Rhye, Antibalas, Macy Gray, Breakestra, Ethhio Cali, Jungle Fire, and more.
