Heavyweights Brass Band - June 18 2012

Former UMFM host and MADFOM student (that's Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music for those who don't listen to the program produced by music students here at the U of M on Sundays) Christopher Butcher relocated to Toronto and helped form Heavyweights Brass Band. The group has earned copious amounts of buzz and praise and even a nod from famed tastemaker/DJ Gilles Peterson who included them on his Havana Cultura compilation. In town to play the 2012 TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival, HBB dropped by the studio on the heels of a set at Old Market Square and blazed through three hot originals.
