It's Happenin' in June!

It's finally summertime in the Northeast! And we've got lots of goodies on our calendar for the summer, and more to add soon. In June, we're covering the town with brassy funk, and it all starts tomorrow...

The East End Festival is the officially the unofficial start of the Rochester festival season. And it's the only major Rochester music festival that the PBBB hasn't played yet. So, we're stoked to get out there! The show's at 7:20pm tomorrow. All the details (including which stage and where the heck that is along East Avenue) can be found here.

The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival is the most happenin' event in the history of Rochester. And we're back for our annual appearance on the most happenin' stage - the Jazz Street Stage. We're closing out the festival this year with two sets on Saturday, June 18, at 7:15 & 9:15pm, and it's FREE. Not to be missed!

Water Street Music Hall, in Downtown Rochester, is hosting Love in Stockholm, a very brassy rock band from Boston. And guess who's opening the show? The PBBB takes the stage at Water Street on Friday, June 24 at 9pm. Tickets are $7 in advance (which can be purchased at either of the above-mentioned shows, or here), and is a bargain of a price for the amount of brassy rock funk that will be packed into this night!

We've also got some radio show appearances happening this month:
Open Tunings w/ Scott Regan - 9:30am, Friday June 24 on 88.5FM. Listen Live And...
Sunday Night Shakedown w/ Frank & Woody - 8:30pm, Sunday June 19 on 98.9FM. Listen Live

Roll up your sleeves and get funky with the Po'Boys Brass Band in June!

Lighting up Roc City with some Po'Funk!

Hey, Po'Fans! The Po'Boys Brass Band has two shows on Saturday evening. Cause we just love playing for six straight hours!

At 9:30pm, we'll be at our regular haunt, Abilene (153 Liberty Pole Way, Downtown).
Admission is only $3. But, it's FREE if you bring a couple canned goods.
This show is to benefit Catholic Family Center's Food Pantry. So, let's all pitch in! On Facebook? RSVP to the Event, and invite your friends!
And, if you still haven't purchased our new CD, we'll have 'em here (with t-shirts and posters, too). (Can't make it? Buy online!)

If you've got some extra cash in your pocket, and you want to support some seriously important culture in our fair city, you should check out our earlier engagement.
At 7pm, we'll be performing at ArtisanWorks to benefit the Hochstein School of Music and Dance. The event is called "A Night in the Big Easy." Did they hire the right band, or what?

There's gonna be Creole food, a fortune-teller, street artists, a silent auction, and lots of other NOLA-inspired stuff. And, of course, dancing to PBBB! It's a $50 ticket which can be purchased by calling 585.454.4403. All the details are here.

Now that the weather's FINALLY getting nice, we know you're itching to let loose with some funk. So, come and get it!
