About C Street Brass:
 C Street Brass began as a small music project between five friends who are coincidentally the most handsome men ever to grace the earth. C Street Brass connects lovers of the arts from all walks of life around a unique and innovative concert experience. The group prides itself on being equally as comfortable in the sound world of baroque music as it is in dubstep. Through constant performance focused on discovery and growth C Street Brass continues to expand the limits of what is possible with five brass instruments. 
           
C Street Brass, ensemble in residence at Carnegie Mellon University, now calls Pittsburgh home. If you hear brass music coming from downtown, chances are it's C Street Brass playing on the street honing material for a new show.

C Street Brass loves collaborating with other artists to create new exciting concert atmospheres for our audiences. In 2010 the group premiered “Two Pieces for Brass Quintet and Organ” by composer David Conte with famous organist and scholar Donald Sutherland. Recently, C Street Brass has been working closely with DJ, Jakeisrain blending different genres of classical music with current electronic dance music.

R&B Will Set You Free - A Benefit Concert

Bob Regis never imagined that his normal, all-American childhood would one day result in bankruptcies, jail time, psychiatric hospitalization and multiple divorces. But, it did. Diagnosed with manic- depression in the early 80’s, Bob has dedicated his life to the eradication of the stigma associated with mental illness.

To achieve this goal he has founded The 10.08 Club, LLC as the vehicle to raise funds on behalf of mental health organizations in Western Pennsylvania. Along with his 10.08 partner, musician Shari Richards, they founded The 10.08 Club as a means to sponsor concerts and other fundraising events. 

Their first concert will take place on Sunday, August 17, 4 P.M. at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille, Warrendale, PA.
