Brass Connection Band was started in 2010 under the direction of Micheal Taylor and William "Biggs" Smothers. The two formed the group in hopes of inspiring their Charlotte, NC community at a time in the recession when jobs were very scarce. The group consists of family members ranging from 15 to 53. Brass Connection Band is known for their live and energetic street performances playing in New York City (Central Park), Washington, DC (Gallery Place Chinatown, Dupont Circle, L’Enfant Plaza) Wilmington, NC (Boardwalk), Atlanta, GA (Aquarium).
