Mnozil Brass

How is it I haven't heard of these guys before? (don't answer that!)

Anyway, good old YouTube comes through again.

Yes, they have a website. Check out the bios. Do strings and woodwinds make this much fun of themselves?

In a way, it reminds me of Blast. A mixture of brass playing and other elements.

Do all these things add up to sideshow attractions or is something new evolving? Look at it this way, without an audience, what are you left with?

On the other hand, Canadian Brass has been doing a similar shtick back when I was in high school.

And before them, Spike Jones

OK, all the historians out there can scold me on how little I know. Still, this Mnozil group seems refreshing.
