They play a variety of songs from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s including Motown, soul, rock-n-roll, disco, ballads, and even an occasional swing or polka song.

Flood City Brass enjoys playing the music of Chicago, Blood Sweat and Tears, The Temptations, Van Morrison, James Brown, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Doobie Brothers, and many other favorites.  The band has a wide library of up-tempo and is well suited for audiences that like to dance.
