ATHENS, OHIO BASED PARTY BAND
Formed in 2017, The Largemouth Brass Band brings brasstastic funk from the streets of Athens, OH to the rest of the world. Comprised of current and former Ohio University students, Largemouth keeps the party alive with a variety of music, combining traditional New Orleans second-line charts, sprinkled with funky jazz fusion and hip-hop originals and covers. With the 2019 release of their debut album, LARGEMOUTH, the power of funky and soulful brass can be shared with the world! Largemouth maintains a regular performance schedule, playing at venues and festivals all around Ohio and the Midwest.
In addition to being the life of the party, spreading the power of music through music education is a mission for the band and its members, presenting clinics and masterclasses to music students at area schools. Many of the band’s members teach at universities and school districts around Ohio, as well as teach private lessons by maintaining their own private teaching studios.
