Get Out! And Listen to the Crush Funk Brass Band's Socially Distanced Concert on Friday May 14th, 4-5pm on the NCRC Playground

by Peggy Robin


The highlighted event for the “Get Out!” column this week is a real live – but socially distanced – concert by the Crush Funk Brass Band, which will take place on the NCRC Pre-school’s playground, 3209 Highland Place NW, on Friday, May 14th from 4 – 5 PM. The concert was set up as a thank-you to the faculty and staff of NCRC after a challenging year, but neighbors are invited to come to the sidewalk or gather at spots nearby to enjoy the music.

The Crush Funk Brass Band has been featured in the Washington Post and Good Morning America. Crash Fund Brass is a local, New Orleans-style brass band. They’re young musicians – students at Howard and UDC – who have been lifting people’s spirits around the DMV by giving impromptu “Cabin Fever” concerts. They’re coming to NCRC to share their talents and positivity with an hour-long concert on Friday (rain or shine).


Crush Funk Brass bandleader Santo Buzzaca says:


“It is our community service to support mental health through music! The job is not finished, and there’s still much work to be done. We will continue to uplift and bring positivity to each community and to small and local businesses, through our music and community outreach!”


This is HAPPY music and we can all use a bit of that. Even socially distanced!
