ANNA SALE PRESENTS: Four Interviews and a Funeral

ANNA SALE PRESENTS: Four Interviews and a Funeral

The Outer Borough Brass Band briefly emerged from hibernation last weekend to serve as the house band at a live podcast event called Four Interviews And A Funeral, hosted by our old friend Anna Sale. We recorded some music for Anna’s show Death, Sex & Money a few years ago, so we were a natural choice for last weekend’s event, which was a goodbye party for DSM (which is leaving WNYC at the end of the year). The live show was reviewed by The New Yorker, with a couple of nice mentions of the band. Check it out!

Outerboro @ Brooklyn Bowl – Wednesday 3/22

Outerboro Brass is back at The Bowl!

  • Our Set is at 8pm
  • Tangiers Blues Band plays at 9:30


The Tangiers Blues Band was formed in 1998 after guitarist Chris Scianni (Dangerman, Echobrain with Jason Newsted) and drummer Dave Borla (Dangerman, Echobrain) met photographer/harmonica player Danny Clinch and discovered their mutual love for blues music. The first Tangiers Blues Band jam session took place on Thanksgiving night that year with other musicians and friends, including Huey from the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, King from Cooley High, Mick Jones from Foreigner and tennis player/guitarist John McEnroe. The original line-up was formed after that with Chris (guitar), Dave Borla (drums), Danny (harmonica), Huey (lap steel), King (vox and guitar) adding their long time friends Dave Sellar (bass) from Darlahood and Peter Levin (keys) who had played in various bands in New York City and currently tours with Gregg Allman.

Live at The Lively – Friday 2/19

Come and join Outerboro Brass band as we literally take the party UNDER the streets! On Friday, Feb. 19th, Outerboro will take the stage at The Lively, a unique new live music venue in NYC’s meatpacking district.

From ‘’:

The Lively is defined by live music, artists and creatives. It is a space for everyone to congregate, to drink delicious and inventive drinks, to experience new music and artists and to dance into the early morning. We are about sharing and exploring, highlighting what the Meatpacking district can be, and taking back the grittiness and downtown vibe that has been lost over the years. Come, play and experience The Lively with us.

The band kicks off THREE funky sets of brass band music at 7pm. See you there!
