Zeb Harrison & The Sounds of Praise

What Real Horns Are Made Of!!!

This brass ensemble features a big band sound that moves between New Orleans style music and contemporary gospel with a splash of jazz. While not a Mardi Gras band, the ensemble uses the same instruments—trombones, sousaphones, and euphoniums. The addition of drums and keyboards creates their signature sound.
