As part of the Halifax Jazz Festival free daytime programming.
FOG Brass Band, is a New Orleans brass band party with the intricacies of a modern jazz group. This band features the brassy fun-times frontline of tuba (Jay Burr), trombone (Tom Richards) and trumpet (Rebecca Hennessy), that will have toes tapping and bodies grooving alongside energetic electric guitar (Don Scott), rich piano harmonies (Tania Gill) and deep drum beats (Nico Dann) that will take one through sounds inspired by funky blues, old country, Balkan, folk tunes and high-energy jazz-rock grooves.
Toronto based trumpeter, bandleader and composer, Rebecca Hennessy, formed FOG Brass Band in 2014, shortly after spending seven months on a creative residency in NYC. Since then, FOG has been performing and recording regularly and has a national jazz festival tour booked in summer 2016.
FOG has their digital album "Cast Toward Shore" available on bandcamp and live performance videos available on youtube.
