Brasskill is a lively 14-piece party brass band whose mission is to get your party out on dance floor. Bringing funky decibels to parties, festivals, parades and other merry gatherings in Hudson Valley and surrounding areas, Brasskill's high-energy live performances feature driving percussion section, shiny, melodic horns, LED lights, and the finest thrift store sparkly attire that one can find. The band's wide-ranging repertoire includes music from the New Orleans second line tradition, punk and pop covers, international grooves, as well as original compositions and arrangements.

The name Brasskill is tribute to the history our region in which many towns and areas end in the word "kill" – a Dutch word meaning “little stream” – since much of New York area was founded by the Dutch, and thus given Dutch names.

Largely based in the Kingston and Hudson, NY areas, our members reside as far south as Rosendale, New York all the way up to the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. Because of our geographical spread, the band has the opportunity to play a wide variety of venues, festivals and events throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond.

Brasskill is available hire for private parties, festivals, parades, community events and other fun happenings throughout Northeast.  Contact us to bring the brass party to you!

A Short History:

Brasskill was co-founded in 2018 by brass band veterans Francesca Hoffman (formerly of Brooklyn’s Funkrust Brass Band and Rude Mechanical Orchestra) and Emily Herder (formerly of Somerville, Mass.’s Second Line Social Aid & Pleasure Society Brass Band). Brasskill's early roots stem from within Tin Horn Uprising, a street activist band based in Kingston, NY, where our founders and original members, Adam Katzman, Scott Langley and Lisa Stumph first met.
