From San Francisco/Oakland CA, we are a group of brass, reeds and percussion that plays music to support political causes with particular emphasis on peace, and racial and social justice. We use music and artistic expression as a response to oppressive society, to sustain and build our movements, and as an expression of the world that we want to live in. BLO is a group of musicians (of all levels) and cultural workers who use culture to support causes of a broadly left nature.
Venues: MLK Labor Heritage Festival, Cesar Chaves Parade, Pickets in support of HERE/UNITE, Picket at Safeway with UFCW, Natl. Day Against Police Brutality, Rally against FCC media consolidation, March Against War, Mission District Bay Area Social Forum.Find out more at their band website!
