Thunderously funky screams of brass meet the mischievously playful grooves of modern dance music. Beauty Slap uses horns, keys, and electronics to deliver their self-described genre, future-brass-thunder-funk direct to audience’s brains. The mission is to make you move. From performing as featured soloists in front of the Pittsburgh Symphony orchestra to providing race day music on the track of the Indy 500, Beauty Slap’s infectiously fun live show is optimized for dissemination of good vibes on a global scale. 

Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Big Blitz combines jazz, rock, and electronic musical influences to create their own dynamic sound. Brothers Lucas Ciesielski and Mason Ciesielski unite with drummer Nick Grabigel to forge their unique, infectious style.

Diamond Life is an exhilarating and inclusive monthly dance party, held on the 4th Friday of every month at Spirit Lodge. Resident DJs, Jesley Snipes and DZ Party Time, harness the power of 6 decades of recorded music, seamlessly integrating the full breadth of the pop spectrum. From Blur to Beyoncé, Eno to En Vogue, this party has something for everyone: Indie classics, underground pop hits, and club bangers!

“Call it two turntables and a bass trombone: Pittsburgh’s Beauty Slap bridges ivory-tower music school pedagogy and new-school laptop tweaking techniques to create some seriously funky vibes…a bold big-band brass sound, which is then mixed and manipulated by Ableton wizard Jake Berntsen into sweltering EDM.” - http://www.free-times.com/music/concerts-in-columbia-feb-19-25-021815
Big Blitz is a Pittsburgh based band that was born from the sounds of dance, rock, and jazz improvisation. This trio is comprised of Lucas Ciesielski (tenor and bari sax), Nick Grabigel (drums) and Mason Ciesielski (tenor sax). They are inspired by the sounds of saxophone and percussion-based bands known to busk in the subway stations of New York City. The band writes and performs their own, original tunes, which contain a spacious, powerful, hip sound. Whether plugged in or acoustic, Big Blitz delivers a high energy performance that funkies with your brain and flows down to your feet.
