@ Seven Grand San Diego

The Euphoria Brass Band is part New Orleans tradition and soul, part West Coast attitude and flow and a whole lot of love! Created in 2011 when two New Orleanians, David Bandrowski and Ron Bocian, had an idea to build a New Orleans style brass band on the West Coast. The idea became a reality when they approached KSDS Jazz 88.3’s “Second Line Parade” host Drew Miller with the idea. Through Drew’s associations with some of San Diego’s top horn players, soon Euphoria Brass Band was born. EBB boasts a top shelf horn section in Steve Ebner, April West, Dave Jackson, JP Balmat and Wayne R

@ Seven Grand DTLA

So many people in downtown LA already make Tuesday nights at Seven Grand their local spot for great music and a HUGE array of whiskies to choose from. But for those who may not be familiar with The Makers you should make sure to make Seven Grand on Tuesdays a point of destination when in downtown. Their show is a 100% improvised wall of sound that is influenced from everyone from Miles Davis, Radiohead, Medeski Martin and Wood, Four Tet and Mars Volta to Meshell N'degeocello. They go on 10P and jam out till 1A and there is never a cover. Take it from the locals, it's a must see show! Dav

Shoshana Bush
May 13th, 2015 10:00pm
@ Seven Grand DTLA

“Shoshana Bush can convincingly belt-out the blues, as she demonstrated on Nina Simone and Abbey Lincoln’s ‘Blues for Mamma,’ but can sensitively convey the lyrics on her ballads, where her delivery is very conversational in tone and tempo, as she makes the songs a story-telling experience. Shoshana Bush is a developing artist with a bright future.”

Banditos

@ Seven Grand San Diego

     Originally from Birmingham, AL, Banditos is a group – more like a gang, actually – of six 20-somethings, nowadays operating out of Nashville, close to, and simultaneously very far away from, the gleaming towers and industry hustle of Lower Broad and Music Row. With the rugged power of a flashy Super Chief locomotive, the Banditos’ self-titled debut album bodaciously appropriates elements of ‘60s blues-fused acid rock, ZZ Top’s jangly boogie, garage punk scuzz a la Burger Records, the Drive-By Truckers
