Beauty Slap bringing the funk to The Westmoreland on March 21

Beauty Slap, “Pittsburgh’s party-brass-thunder-funk machine,” will play the March 21 date of The Westmoreland Museum of American Art's Great American Music Series.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
