Chicago's Lowdown Brass Band To Perform At Levitt Pavilion This Friday


Musical acts from across genres and around the country are being presented every weekend at the Levitt Pavilion in downtown Dayton. This Friday brings Chicago's Lowdown Brass Band to the stage, bringing their blend of jazz, reggae, hip hop, and soul that's equal parts Chicago and New Orleans. Shane Jonas, trumpeter and vocalist in the group, spoke to Excursions host Evan Miller ahead of this week's concert about what the band has been up to over the past year, and what to expect at the show.

The Lowdown Brass Band will perform at the Levitt Pavilion Dayton at 7 PM this Friday July 23rd, as part of the Levitt's 2021 Eichelberger Concert Season. For more information, visit LevittDayton.org and LowdownBrassBand.com.

Evan Miller is a percussionist, lover of sound, and is probably buying too many cassette tapes online right now. Evan got his start in radio in 2012 at WWSU at Wright State University, where he was studying percussion performance. He followed through with both endeavors and eventually landed a lucrative dual career playing experimental music at home and abroad, and broadcasting those sounds to unsuspecting listeners Sunday nights on The Outside. Maintaining a connection to normal music, Evan also plays drums in bands around the area, and hosts WYSO's Midday Music show. When not doing something music-related, Evan is most likely listening to podcasts or watching food videos at home with his cat.
