Motor City Brass Band (MCBB) is ranked among the top competition brass bands in North America. Its roots derive from Britain's 200-year-old venerable brass band heritage. MCBB was established in 1996 by John Aren, a Salvation Army officer and former member of the then current National Champion Illinois Brass Band. With musical director Craig Strain at the helm as conductor, arranger, and composer for the group since its inception, MCBB continues to musically define itself as an integral part of the growing national brass band movement. MCBB has performed throughout the state as well as Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Ohio, & Ontario, Canada. The Band annually participates in the First Section of the North American Brass Band Association (NABBA) Championships and, in 2001, released its first CD “After Five”. The band has shared the stage with some of Detroit area's finest ensembles and has featured some of its own stellar players in other performances. Through its performances across the region, events such as the Motor City Festival of Bands, and numerous school outreach concerts, Motor City Brass Band is certainly living up to its motto, "It's more than a concert, it's a SHOW!" Join us at the Center for an evening with the Motor City Brass Band. They will be playing a wide range of music from classical to jazz, pop, rock to sacred. There will truly be something for everyone to enjoy! Refreshments will be on sale before and during the concert.
