Welcome!

Audacity Brass Band is a ten piece “new wave” New Orleans Style party band with a funk-fusion twist. ABB originated out of Farmville, VA and now is based out of Richmond. With all members composing, ABB’s style is influenced and includes; hip-hop, rock, blues, traditional jazz, or whatever they are feeling on stage at the moment. “We love the flair that Audacity’s style brings. Groovy, Funky, Tight, Audacity.” – Charlottesville Fan

Audacity was started by Sam and Tyler in April 2014, with the help of other musicians and friends at Longwood University. Once they found set musicians the group quickly started arranging and writing. Audacity played their first two years around Farmville, Virginia mostly around the campus of Longwood University. 2015 brought ABB’s first recorded demo, Bourne Salty. Good luck finding that. In 2016 Audacity Brass Band released their first album A101 and picked up residencies in Richmond, Farmville, and Charlottesville and began to travel outside of the Central Virginia area. In January 2018, the band released a deluxe single, The Salt Supremacy, that featured their anthem “Brap Attack”. Audacity releaed their second full length album, The Chemically Imbalanced, on February 7th 2019! Check the upcoming events below to see when they are #bringingtheparty to you!
