Biographical / Historical

A trombone shout band is a brass band that imitates the heavenly rhythmic vocal gospel of the African-American Pentecostal Church, especially the United House of Prayer located on the East Coast. The trombone shout bands became popular in the 1940s. A trombone band traditionally consists of 3 harmony horns, 2 lead trombones, tuba, baritone horn, and drums. Sometimes a sousaphone is used for bass.
