In this politically challenging era, it’s time to stand up against the machine. Brass Against is collective of artists, led and curated by Brad Hammonds, who share in the goal of creating brass protest music that calls fans to action. We want the music we perform to sound inspiring and resonate with people’s emotions, encouraging them to act. We combine rock and edgy hip-hop to play music that's powerful and empowering. Brass Against is exceptional music with a political edge. We are angry, we are inspired, we are ready for change—and we hope our music amplifies this energy in everyone who listens.
A New York City alternative pop-rock band with anthemic melodies, unapologetic lyrics, and
emotionally powerful productions. Muse meets The Weeknd with a splash of Queen and a
sprinkle of Gym Class Heroes.
78RPM is comprised of three musician/writer/producers whose highly varied musical
backgrounds come together to form something completely unexpected. Influenced by their
collective experience working with artists across all genres (J-Lo, Shaggy, M.I.A., Pit Bull,
Showtek, lil’ Kim, Wu Tang Clan, Chick Correa, Ron Carter, Hillary Duff, Oh Honey, and countless
indie artists). With multiple gold and platinum records as well as several Grammy nods
amongst them, this band is on the edge of today’s sound.
2017 Saw 78RPM become 8 Time winners of X107.5 KXTE-FM’s The Beatdown and hit The
FMQB Top 30 for their single Best Friend to Enemy, heard on stations nationwide.
J Dub (Lead Vocals, Percussion, Keys, Programming) is a classically-trained singer and jazz
saxophonist who has performed in countless shows across the US. His soaring vocals drive
the melodies of the tracks and have been likened to Marilyn Manson and Freddie Mercury,
with a flair for drama and a commanding stage presence.
GC (Lead Vocals, Keys, Guitar, Programming) is a rising star in the world of dance and reggae.
He has been featured on numerous dance tracks with today’s top DJ’s and artists. His
Jamaican background adds a layer of soul and authenticity to the edgy and pop-driven
elements that keep the fans coming back for more.
Richie Cheeks (Backing Vocals, Drums, Keys, Bass, Programming) is a world-class multi-
instrumentalist who started out bangin’ drums in the garages of north Jersey, and finished his
formal education as classical percussionist. His musicianship and production skills can be
heard across all of the bands tracks.
On a bitterly cold Friday evening in January, when most people couldn’t find the motivation
to leave their apartments, three busy music producers were doing something they hadn’t
done in a long time. Sitting in a studio, writing music just for the hell of it. All of the good work
done on behalf of other artists left them with little or no time to visit their own musical
playgrounds--or battlegrounds, as some would see it. When you produce other people’s
music, you become a de facto therapist, helping the artist express what’s happening in their
lives. But these guys had problems of their own. The dissolution of a long and difficult
relationship. The tragic loss of a close friend. A childhood dream dashed against the rocks.
The three had plenty to write about. And so the time for self-therapy had begun. So, over an
old Wurlitzer electric piano and bottle of tequila, 78RPM was born.
