The District can be a stodgy, segregated and serious place. But Brass Connection — a nine-man family troupe of trombonists, percussionists and sousaphone players — inspires people to move their feet.
June 13, 2014 Mosche Snowden, 35, of Brass Connection plays lead trombone during the Mystics game. The nine-man troupe ranges in age from 16 to 53 and plays on the streets of the District. Brass Connection has become so popular it is now the house band for the Mystics. Sarah L. Voisin/The Washington Post Buy Photo
