VeVe & tha Rebels/DuPont Brass

Performance Information

Two of D.C.’s hottest bands present their signature sounds that capture the pulse of the city.

Mars Urban Arts Initiative 2018/19 ensembles-in-residence VeVe & tha Rebels and DuPont Brass come together for a double bill that showcases some of the most vibrant performing and teaching artists in D.C. Truly a musical representation of what it means to call D.C. home, these two bands work closely with Washington Performing Arts’ educational and community programs throughout the season to empower the voices and stories of students and our community. The original Afro-folk songs of VeVe & tha Rebels tell the complex story of discovery and identity through purpose-driven music making. DuPont Brass delights with an unabashedly soulful mash-up of styles to uplift the spirit.

This performance is made possible through the generous support of Judith Alison Lee. Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible through the generous support of the Galena-Yorktown Foundation. Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative is generously supported by Jacqueline Badger Mars and Mars, Incorporated.
