Grand Avenue Ruckus
Featuring some of Knoxville's familiar faces, Grand Ave Ruckus is the Midwest's newest brass band, and they're here to bring the boogie from the bayou to the heartland. Taking inspiration from New Orleans' best brass bands to the Jackson 5, Grand Ave Ruckus is a bombastic, get-down-and-dance, funk filled show. Featuring local Des Moines musicians, Grand Ave Ruckus covers your favorite tunes with a powerful, horn-driven performance. Screaming trumpets, wailing saxophones, and a big bottom end give Grand Ave Ruckus their one-of-a-kind sound. Grand Ave Ruckus is always a party, and it's definitely one you won't want to miss! And to add to the fun, Grand Avenue Ruckus includes two of our own music directors, Ben McCartney the KHS Band Director, and Christian Hayden, the KMS Band Director.
