Austin — One of TCMF’s new performers for 2014, the Yes Ma’am! Brass Band, is a relatively new Austin ensemble, but quickly building a follower throughout the brass band community.
The all-woman band recently appeared at the fourth annual Honk!TX Festival here in Austin, and has been invited to appear in Seattle for HonkFestWest, later this year. From the band: “YM!BB was formed in October 2012 by a group of new and experienced players who just like to make noise and jump around, forever and ever. Amen.”
They’ll kick off a three hour set of rowdy and rocking brass band music which will highlight TCMF’s Sunday show. Following Yes Ma’am will be the always-entertaining and highly unpredictable Dead Music Capital Band, making its fourth TCMF appearance.
The evening culminates with the funkier than funky Boss Street Brass Band, one of Austin’s favorite New Orleans-style second line bands.

Texas Community Music Festival, now in its ninth year, is presented by the Austin Civic Wind Ensemble and graciously hosted by Central Market.
