We are a group of musicians with fine arts degrees, music degrees, and post-secondary music training who insist on having a fun, co-creative, collaborative environment with like-minded (and like-experienced) individuals to complement our ever-evolving lives. Little Brown Jug Brass is comprised of people who take their craft seriously, but not much else! Having been caught up in the ‘perfectionism’ of it all, we have now chosen to focus on some of the best gifts music has provided us – camaraderie, light-heartedness, connection, and laughter.
Based on our shared history, we’re fortunately in the unique position of being able to access the mentorship of successful, talented, full-time professional musicians, while offering mentorship to younger up and coming musicians. Our baritone sax is currently in University pursuing his degree under the tutelage of someone we went to University with!
So here we are, a fun group of ex-perfectionists, some of whom may have taken ourselves a little too seriously for a little too long, coming back to our love of playing from a new perspective. And a whole lotta great beer!
