CHIRP brings Low Down Brass Band and The RTs to Ballard Park this Week!

CHIRP Presents free outdoor family concerts open to the public in Ridgefield’s Ballard Park every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7pm through September 1, 2022.

Tuesday, August 9: Low Down Brass Band 

This ensemble is a uniquely strong representation of Chicago Music culture. A talented all horn band they lean heavily on dancehall and street beat rhythm, with the energy of conscious hip hop, jazz, reggae, and soul. Since their first appearance at CHIRP in 2018, their music has continued to evolve and their reputation to grow. In 2019 they did a headlining set at the Montreal Jazz Festival and have since performed at World Music Fest and the Vancouver Jazz Fest among many others.

Thursday, August 11: The RTs 

They say it takes nearly a decade for a wine to mature.  The same could be said for The RT’s (formerly the Rad Trads).  If you caught their brand of raucous, beer-soaked trad jazz and blues in the early days, you’ll see  the same ingredients (boisterous horns, impassioned vocals, and a driving groove) but a new flavor, and the kind of maturity and subtlety that only comes with time.
