Four trumpeters, one baritone player, and two trombonists—together, the seven brothers of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble create a magnetic sound that bridges the gap between jazz and hip hop. The sons of Chicago jazz trumpeter Kelan Phil Cohran, the ensemble has checked off all the “we’ve arrived” moments as a band: touring the world, taking the stage with legends like Prince, and having a song featured on the soundtrack in the blockbuster Hunger Games movie. Now, they’re bringing their magnetic sound to the Peristyle stage with a live performance on Saturday, March 4 at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Stranahan Theater, by phone at 419-381-8851 or online at etix.com. The show is sponsored in part by Toledo.com.
