TCMF Spotlight: Dead Music Capital Band

The Dead Music Capital Band, freshly decomposed from crowd-pleasing triumphs at Mardi Gras in New Orleans and the 2013 Honk!TX festival in Austin, will be appearing in its second Texas Community Music Festival.  Come get zombified Sunday, April 21, at 7:45pm.

Blowing horns and banging drums from beyond the grave, the Dead Music Capital Band made their debut October 2011 in Austin, TX as the house band for the KreweDCM Halloween Parade.

Proving that the party doesn’t have to end just because life does, DMCB takes their cadaverous cacophony to the streets whenever possible.

From show tunes, originals, New Orleans-brass classics, heavy metal, movie themes to Chopin and beyond – it’s all fed through the DMCB brass band organ grinder to produce an outrageously macabre musical party.

In its short existence, Austin’s favorite zombie band has performed in two Honk!TX festivals, the Texas Community Music Festival, the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbaccus during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, SXSW and numerous festivals and celebrations, including help save the world from the Mayan Apocalypse

The New Orleans Times-Picayune, in its review, called DMCB “unaccountably lively.”
