Beauty Slap bringing the funk to The Westmoreland on March 21
If you never thought of The Westmoreland Museum of American Art as a funky place, Beauty Slap will change that.
Self-described as “Pittsburgh’s party-brass-thunder-funk machine,” the band will play the Greensburg museum’s Great American Music Series from 6:30-9 p.m. March 21.
With four horns, keyboards and a computer, the ensemble’s sound melds a traditional brass quartet with modern dance grooves.
Anqwenique & The Ensemble, featuring vocalist Anqwenique Wingfield, will cap off the series’ season on May 16. Wingfield is a vocalist and teaching artist specializing in opera, classical music, jazz and soul, and founder of Groove Aesthetic, a Pittsburgh-based multidisciplinary artist collective.
“With the Great American Music Series, we’re celebrating a variety of musical styles and supporting local artists,” said Catena Bergevin, the museum’s deputy director/director of advancement, in a release. “We’re looking forward to having folks come out to hear Beauty Slap and Anqwenique & The Ensemble while enjoying our casual setting surrounded by great art.”
Tickets for each concert are $25, $20 for members and $10 for students with ID.
