Thanks for your interest in Escalation Horns, a horn-based band influenced by traditional New Orleans, Funk, Soul, Blues, and Jazz music.
We are looking to expand our roster of musicians to pull from for regular busking and gigging opportunities.
We are planning some busking gigs in Manhattan this spring. We have a repertoire of about 30+ tunes, and will provide set lists in advance of about a dozen tunes we will cover for each busking session.
Our music ranges from contemporary to classic Nola/soul including Stevie Wonder, Rebirth Brass Band, James Brown, Lizzo, Horace Silver, The Meters, etc.
We have been gigging and busking since 2019. Some of our gigs have included Chelsea Music Hall, Silvana, Queens Brewery, and private events, in addition to busking in NYC.

Our instrumentation includes, but is not limited to, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, tuba/sousaphone, and drums. We have also included instruments like vocals, bass, guitar, and keyboards, on some gigs.
