Andrew Greene and Eric Biondo crack a beer and talk it out. Hilarity ensues. Trumpet players from The Budos Band interview other brass players, fellow musicians, and interesting humans.
This Season 1 finale is also our first episode taped during the Sars Cov 2 pandemic lockdown, wherein we dial up from our respective homes, unable to see one another. Andrew and Eric play catch up and receive a special call from an old friend. Please rate, review, recommend, and follow us on instagram @brassballspodcast if you would like to hear a season 2.
A Nice Hanger
In our final pre-covid taping the brass balls boys are joined by a versatile veteran trumpeter, Jeff Pierce, who can fall on his face and keep playing the set like it's nothing.
Kickin' It With Chuck
As if an interview with ace trombonist Ray Mason (Antibalas) wasn't already awesome enough, we get interrupted by a very special call-in guest.
Jordan McLean, founding trumpeter of Antibalas, discusses his life's philosophy.
Johnny Ding Dong
A long-form interview with William Schalda Jr., who played in more than one precursor to The Budos Band, and who has since played with Charles Bradley, with NY garage rock legends The Realistics, with his family band The Sha La Das, and while wearing many hats for his solo project Billy Swivs. Will tells us funny stories from growing up in Staten Island, during which time he suffered tuba in the high school marching band.
Andy and Eric get high… courtesy of Oregon’s Cannabis Concierge, Mr. Joshua J. Taylor, who is the most knowledgable person you’ll ever meet when it comes to marijuana. Josh lays out the facts, drawing from his vast experience as a medical cannabis caregiver, columnist, event producer, and CEO. Our hosts – hanging onto their seats – add a musician’s perspective and together we learn how all this knowledge is rooted in American history and how it can be applied today. (Recorded on location at an outdoor musical festival in San Francisco.)
