Traveling constantly, crisscrossing three continents, and touring with successful acts such as the Jackson's, Q'Jays, Earth Wind and Fire, Commordores and Parliament Funkadelics. A blend of friction and finesse, Brass Construction's music mixes an array of uncompromising hard-hitting funk rhythms with guitars, horns and striking keyboard passages.

" M.O.B" have continued to diversify and modernize their sound, but steadfastly retain what put them on the map in the beginning: raw power and street Ievel passion.
