What Cheer? Brigade

The WHAT CHEER? BRIGADE is a rowdy 19-piece brass band that combines a punk rock ethos and the mobility of marching bands. We play Luddite hardcore – loud, fast music that reclaims public space and requires no electricity. We are a party band, and our sound incorporate elements of musical traditions such as Bollywood, Balkan, New Orleans, samba, and punk…and that’s just the short list. Providence-based record label Anchor Brain (Chinese Stars, Six Finger Satellite) is going to be re-releasing our debut "We Blow, You Suck" What Cheer? Brigade is a raucous live experience. Examiner.com says, “I guarantee you if you ever go to a What Cheer? show you will lose at least 5 lbs from the sweat and dancing that will take over your psyche, blowing your mind into smithereens.” Since 2005, we have played bars, clubs, libraries, trees, cemeteries, weddings, bus stops, farms, and playgrounds. We’ve played everything from small community events in Providence to a collaborative performance with Dan Deacon at Lollapalooza and large festivals in Europe. We have shared stages with musicians such as Man Man, Japanther, Dengue Fever, Okkervil River, Lightning Bolt, Ninjasonik, Mika Miko, Wolf Parade, Matt and Kim, DJ Scratch, Slavic Soul Party, and Chain and the Gang.
