Reldnips and Mr. Ting
During the last class period we discussed new brass bands and the evolution of the those bands, particular in the area around Madison, Wisconsin. It seems there is a growing market for groups combining brass band elements with influences of hip-hop, R&B, soul, pop and other modern styles. Reldnips and Mr. Ting is an assemblage of musicians in Iowa City, and the University of Iowa School of Music. The group performs regularly in the area. I would recommend checking them out, especially if you are interested by the styles of music we heard in class Monday.
