Saint Boogie Brass Band (SB3) was founded in 2011 by two cousins, also Kappa Kappa Psi (𝜥𝜥𝝍) brothers Chris Tomlin and Ryan Maclin after attending the 2011 St. Louis Mardi Gras and hearing not one brass band. They decided to bring the New Orleans style funk to St. Louis. SB3 employs the power of horns and percussion and mixes in Soul, Pop, R&B, Jazz, Blues, Hip-Hop and Funk and tops it off with some traditional New Orleans brass tunes. Saint Boogie Brass Band is exceptional in how they baptize each song in their own signature of special Saint Boogie Brass Band magic. “We are a Funky Brass Band with a Midwest Swing, just bringing joy and love to our listeners.”
