WHO ARE WE?

DuPont Brass is a unique, soulful, brass ensemble hailing from the D.C. Metropolitan Area. Originally composed of five music majors from Howard University trying to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season, they have now grown to a 9-piece ensemble consisting of brass, a rhythm section, and vocalists. Gaining popularity from playing at local Metro stations, DuPont Brass started out professionally playing for weddings, banquets, and other private events in the surrounding area. Thanks to the foundation laid in their earlier years, DuPont Brass has had the opportunity to perform in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival, The Washington Performing Arts Society, and on the prestigious Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. Consistently touching the hearts of the community with their heartwarming testimony, DuPont Brass has been featured on WPFW's “Live at Five” three times and featured in the Washington Post Newspaper five times. Through their training in both classical and contemporary styles, the young group has developed a sound that mixes varied genres of music, including jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. At the top of 2018, they released Eclectic Soul, a full length project that is a testament to that sound. Their latest EP, Halftime, is an ode to their marching band upbringing. Halftime stays true to the DuPont Brass style of taking something old and making something totally new.

HALFTIME

October 2018

When mind and music come together, a masterful album like This Takes Two is the end result. Digging deep into their musical soul, DuPont Brass created a perfectly paced album, with a compilation of powerful lyrics and harmonious melodies that transcend its theme. DuPont Brass hope you enjoy these excellent tunes, so please feel free to listen, share, and send them your comments.

ECLECTIC SOUL

January 2018

After taking a short break, DuPont Brass returned to the music scene fiercer and more committed than ever. This album reflects a new turn in their career as a progressive Hip Hop Group. With Save Our Soles, DuPont Brass created some of their most compelling work to date. Listen and enjoy the superior sound quality that this album has to offer.

CREWSIN: SOUNDS OF THE CITY

September 2014

We would like to thank each and every individual that has helped us to get to this point--whether you donated money, booked us for a gig, or bought our music. Every picture, letter, and tweet meant so much to us. We would also like to thank every songwriter and performer who's song we covered on this record. The beautiful art that you have created through sincerity and love was incredibly inspiring to us. Every song that DuPOnt Brass covers is done out of admiration and honor to you. It is our deepest prayer that we can continue to make all of our supporters as proud as we possibly can with the gifts that have been given to us.
