Brass Differential’s tuba, er, sousaphone steals the show

“These guys are blowing their faces off. It takes a lot of work,” said guitarist/vocalist Shawn Connelly, who, along with drummer Steve Seitz and newly added keyboard player Brian Gruselle, are the only members of the band who don’t play a horn. “I call Kelly the hardest-blowing man in this band, because he is. He’s constant. That guy’s blowing and blowing and blowing. He has lungs of steel.” In case you missed it Kendra Meinert, USA TODAY NETWORK-WIsconsin, wrote a fun story last week on the band, Brass Differential, a New Orleans-style brass band. Included on the band roster is UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Adam Gaines (trumpet). Want to see them in person? upcoming gigs:
