Imagine coming into work on a Thursday morning, taking the metro and wishing that it was Friday but you have one more day to go to get to that magical day of the week! You get off of the metro, come up the escalator, and emerge outside – when you do, you get the best EARGASM ever!
It is DuPont Brass, an innovative brass brand comprised of students from Howard University. They began as a 5 member band trying to raise money for tuition and now have grown to 9 members and play at weddings, banquets, political events and other functions.
I actually look forward to Thursdays now, as I know I will get to hear their band play as I depart the metro and walk to work. It puts me in a good mood to see them working together to make such beautiful music and to know that they are doing what they love to do makes it even better!
I came to like DuPont Brass so much from the short time I get to listen to them as I come out of the metro that I decided to purchase their CD, Crewsin. It is amazing. The sound they create together is undeniable. You too, can purchase their CD.
I promise you will love their story, their sound and their CD. Check them out and support in any way that you can. Here is a story that we need on the news. A positive story about a group of African Americans that are doing something positive!
Thank you, DuPont Brass for always making me smile on Thursdays!
