High & Mighty Brass Band
High & Mighty Brass Band
There’s a reason that musical trailblazers from Galactic to DJ Logic have recently chosen to collaborate with High and Mighty Brass Band! and legends such as Dr. John, Rebirth Brass Band, and Trombone Shorty have chosen them to share the stage. Co-mingling band members from New Orleans, NYC, and a host of other cities across the globe, this dynamic krewe has the unique ability to combine classic New Orleans Funk and R&B with more modern Afro-Beat and Hip Hop influences.

Their live performances are both fiercely entertaining and refreshingly inspiring, connecting the band with each and every audience member. Just catching a single performance will make it abundantly clear why HMBB! is known as “a party in progress!”
Nik Greeley & The Operators
Nik Greeley is known for being arguably the best frontman & performer in Philadelphia, and just in the last few years has established himself as one of the most entertaining & hard working musicians in the area, often being compared to the likes of James Brown, Joe Cocker, and Jim Morrison. Greeley released his solo debut EP Town Gypsy in Spring 2015, and has performed live sessions & received airplay on radio stations such as Radio 104.5, 88.5 WXPN, 93.3 WMMR, 93.7 WSTW and 95.9 WRAT. Greeley is also a member & singer in Philly funk band, Swift Technique, where he shares lead vocal duties with his female counter-part, Chelsea ViaCava. Members of ST also perform in The Operators, including Greg Rosen and Ian Gray.

The Operators is a collective of some of the finest musicians in Philly and who all happen to be friends, too. It includes producer/drummer Joe Baldacci, bassist, Kenny Shumski, and members of prog-fusion juggernauts, Out of The Beardspace, Zach LoPresti (Lead Guitar) & Sam Gutman (Keyboards). The operators horn section is Greg Rosen on trumpet, Ian Gray on trombone (both members of Swift Technique), and Jason O’Mara on saxophone.

Greeley has had the pleasure of opening for respected artists such as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Gene Ween (Ween) Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Shuggie Otis, Bernie Worrell (P-Funk, Talking Heads) Fishbone, Moon Hooch, Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Rusted Root and many more. NG & The Operators is looking to continue their success into 2016 and beyond.
