On Sunday, Feb. 14, enjoy the irresistible 21st-century musical stylings of the Rat City Brass while indulging in chocolate and champagne, beer or wine at Burien Actors Theatre’s Valentine’s Fundraiser Concert.

Combining infectious melodies from the 1960s golden age of instrumental pop, cool cocktail exotica and a touch of contemporary roar, the Seattle-based Rat City Brass have fashioned an exceptional band guaranteed to raise smiles from old-school music aficionados and jaded hipsters alike.

Here’s a taste of the band in action from Burien’s 2014 Arts-A-Glow, courtesy Michael Brunk:

When they formed in 2009, Seattle-based Rat City Brass largely paid homage to classic pop composers like Herb Alpert, Burt Bacharach, and Henry Mancini. Within months, they added their own arrangements of songs by artists like The Turtles, The Beatles, and even Tchaikovsky.  Suddenly it’s on – and the cool kids get it.

Rat City Brass plays the best rooms throughout the Pacific Northwest, and has been featured live on Seattle’s KEXP 90.3 FM.

With top-notch musicianship, soaring melodies, danceable rhythms and a fun, breezy stage presence, Rat City Brass is what brass sounds like in the 21st century.
