Brasstracks Lights Up The Brooklyn Skies @ Elsewhere’s Rooftop
Despite absolutely frigid conditions, funk lovers from all around New York City braved the wintry chill to experience a truly one of a kind set. RIding the major high of a hugely successful year which featured the release of their critically acclaimed For Those Who Know Pt. II album and extensive touring all over North America, New York R&B and soul duo Brasstracks capped off their winning run with an intimate rooftop performance at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere.
Indescribable in their style but undeniable in their talent, Brasstracks are one of New York’s freshest and most versatile acts. In an attempt to recreate the album artwork for their most recent release, For Those Who Know Pt II, the duo sought to create a night that perfectly embodied the splendor and swagger of New York City.

The warm glow of strung lights created a romantic atmosphere as music lovers from all across the Big Apple huddled shoulder to shoulder in their thickest winter garb. A customary Northeastern cold snap ensured the Brooklyn rooftop would be whipped quite mercilessly with autumn winds, but luckily the smouldering performance on stage kept minds, bodies and souls preoccupied.
On a night that resembled a true homecoming, Brasstracks took to the stage like conquering heroes. Accompanied by vocalists and an entire horns section to supplement the duo’s usual array drums, synths and horns Brasstracks took their craft to another level. Completely in their element, the twosome relished the opportunity to weave a deeply rewarding experience for their faithful fans who braved the elements in their name.
Like true band leaders, Brasstracks led the intimate audience on a swelling voyage through, R&B, funk, soul, hip-hop and jazz. The two seamlessly blended timeless elements of classic genres with the eclecticism and curiosity of modern sonic styles. Brasstracks displayed their considerable musicianship with verve and vibrancy bringing a healthy dose of showmanship to night’s proceedings.
Asian fans are in luck as the band get set to bring their immersive live show on tour to Japan, South Korea, China and Indonesia. Check out the full dates below and grab your tickets here.
