Athfest 2010: Let's bring it to a Half Dozen

Saturday, June 26th, 2010
Half Dozen Brass Band

Now you've gotta love the Half Dozen Brass Band! With practically no vocals, this swing band played Athfest on pure talent. I had the pleasure of seeing them take the stage for a few songs with Betsy Franck last Athfest, but hearing their own set was simply brilliant. When they announced that they were going to play a tune tribute to the Jackson 5, though, I have to admit I was skeptical. How can anybody perform a cover of the Jackson 5 without lyrics? The way they did it nearly blew me away! As they played, their instruments spoke like voices, no vocals necessary. Way cool, indeed.
