James Zap and the Ridgefield High School Jazz Band Open for Funky Dawgz Brass Band at Playhouse on May 23

James Zap and the Ridgefield High School Jazz Band will be opening for the Funky Dawgz Brass Band at the Ridgefield Playhouse on May 23, featuring RHS alumnus Tommy Weeks on tenor saxophone.

Join us in the lobby at 7:15pm for a complimentary craft beer tasting by The Boston Beer Company and an art exhibit by Chaz Well!

The Funky Dawgz Brass Band has opened shows for Robert Cray, Femi Kuti, Trombone Shorty and others at The Playhouse and wowed audiences with their contagious upbeat mix of traditional New Orleans R&B, original music, hip hop, funk, and today’s top hits with a brass twist! Don’t miss their headlining debut!  Emerging from Connecticut, these young men have engulfed the spirit and traditions of New Orleans as well as earned the respect from local musicians who grew up and reside in the city. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself during a Funky Dawgz Brass Band show!

When the band is not playing shows they are giving back to the community. The Funky Dawgz aim to connect, engage, inspire and rejuvenate music education in inner-city schools across the country. The band frequently gives performances and master classes to young musicians in elementary, middle, and high schools across the region.
