Hypnotic Brass Ensemble aka "Bad Boys Of Jazz" aka "Tha Bros" aka "Yo Favorite Band", are moving in a different direction. And with that new road, we keeping some of the same visions before. We have been known to have one of the livest musical shows or live stage performances on the planet. And with that, we have never really gotten our feet wet inside our home country (USA). Well, for all of our loyal fans who found HBE on the internet, or someone who knows someone else. And told another few people about the band, that reside in these 50 great states. We have finally found a way to perform in the US. What's interesting is... Just that fact... HBE has never toured in the USA. We've toured in Canada, Mexico, S. America (Brazil, Columbia, Argentina), UK, Europe, Ireland, Australia, New Zeland, Japan, Nigeria, S. Africa, etc, multiple times, for many years. But haven't gotten the proper US experience yet. Honestly, that's been because we've never had a US booking agent. And now, that's exactly what we have on deck. And the band is extremely excited and looking forward to performing this incredibly creative music for the home team. We want you all to click our tour dates icon above to find out when and where you can see the illustrious Hypnotic Brass Ensemble in North America (USA) this year and beyond. Still getting those passport stamps, but showing long awaited LOVE to these city streets. We want everybody to continue to support this movement. Because all of you, literally saved our lives from potential perill. Being from the south side of Chicago, success stories seem like fantacies and fables. Until you're given out, and music was ours. That's why we always say that "we are fans of our fans". Because without real radio, internet, paper print, or tv press, HBE has survived. Not have we survived, but we've created something bigger than our own personal lives (HBE Music). So, until we come rolling through your city, I bid you all PEACE & LOVE.

So, we've made it through another year. And this year was full of ups and downs for HBE. But through the fire, we have survived the burn. In other words, we have done what's necessary to complete another cycle around the Sun. The band travels the globe every year. Most times, landing in new territories. Meeting new faces, presenting our brand to new minds and cultures. Then other times, we're returning to reinforce and reiterate our last point. And lay down fresh statement's. Meaning, our music has a message that is always evolving. And we're totally grateful to have an outlet for exposing it to the world. We are true FANS of our FANS. We love people who love us back. We feed heavily off of other peoples energy. And gladly give huge loads of energy to feed from for the people. From wherever we go, to wherever we come from. To whomever listens, or witness and experience the sounds of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Whether it's inside the US, UK, EU, S. America, Mexico, Canada, or any other place we've performed this past year. From every once of spirit we can muster, HBE loves you all for your continued support. And wish you all a happy and safe holiday season. Love, kiss, and hug your family. And tell them how much they mean to you, then show them...
Until next year Earth... Hypnotic loves you

So, we've been grinding a long time on this independent route. It has had multiple ups and downs. People definitely love you when the press is all in your face or other celebrities are checking for you. Then when the tide is low, they don't pick up the phones. Lesson's to be learned in any career choice you choose. But HBE is never bitter, because we definitely know our path is a great path. And a great destiny is on our side. The creator and the ancestors have always guided us. And as our father has always reminded us that, "as long as we stay together, there is nothing we can't accomplish". So as we complete this year with touring in S. America and Europe. We want you guys to stay tuned in for 2016, because our HOME (USA) will began to see more of the new Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. We started out marketing and promoting our music on the streets off Chicago, and New York. Then got the opportunity to perform all over this world. Enlightening audiences on the smallest to largest stages. Being ambassador's for our community, our family, our city, and our country. We have grown as men, fathers, brothers, sons, and plan to continue to be a beacon light for the future. Please check our videos, spread and share our music with your friends. And let's continue on this wonderful adventure.
