Mighty Souls Brass Band

Mighty Souls Brass Band, a rotating collective of composer-players versed in a multitude of musical traditions, isn't a soul band, nor is it a funk band, a marching band, or a swing band.  And yet, depending on where you catch them live, you’ll hear all of those influences, as well as more from around the globe, in the group’s music.  “We’re not interested in just being a bunch of Memphis musicians playing New Orleans-style brass band music,” says Murphy.  “We love that music, and we honor it.  But we love Memphis music too, and world music, and we want to pay tribute to that history.  And it’s a deep one.”
