Po' Boys Brass band kicks off Blues Assoc. series Thursday

NORWICH – For over a decade, Chenango County residents have had the opportunity to experience a wide variety of national talent in the weeks leading up to the Chenango Blues Festival and this year will be no different as the Chenango Blues Association once again offers up its Summer Concert Series, beginning at 7 p.m. Thursday with a performance by the Rochester-based Po’Boys Brass Band.

A far cry from the traditional brass band, the Po’Boys were “founded by a bunch of trombone players that were fed up with sitting in the back of orchestras and jazz bands,” according to the band’s website, poboysbrassband.com.

Featuring trombonists Evan Dobbins, Nick Finzer, Erik Jacobs and Chris Van Hof, guitarist Mike Frederick, drummer Chris Teal and T.J. Ricer on sousaphone, this New Orleans-inspired ensemble has, in recent years, established itself as a powerhouse of brass, funk, soul and rock, from Stevie Wonder to Tower of Power, Led Zeppelin to Edgar Winter.
