This weekend, Harlow’s will play host to a battle of the bands. But not just any band — brass bands. It’s the Second Annual Battle of the Brass Bands. Sacramento’s Element Brass Band and MJ’s Brass Boppers from the Bay Area will duke it out this Saturday.

Element Brass Band joins us in studio to talk about the history of band battles and what makes this one a little different. They’ll also give listeners a little taste of what to expect when they perform live in our studio.

Watch the Element Brass Band perform "We Got That Fire" live in the Insight studio in 2014.
