AUGUST is a Rock & Roll, Soul, and Rhythm & Blues band with a hint of jazz thrown in for good measure. We play the music we grew up with, as well as music from newer artists. Our goal is to honor the gap left by the demise of many of our musical heroes, revive some treasured songs of yesterday, and present some of the best music ever written.

AUGUST is neither a "retro Band" nor a typical "horn band"; we've chosen a different path. In today's world of "manufactured stars" and badly spoken rhymes masquerading as music, real music demands to be heard again.

The 7-piece horn section forms the "body" for our music.  The driving force of the rhythm section gives it "direction". Together, these sections give life to AUGUST. This is music that should be experienced live to truly appreciate the "exSIGHTment" of sound.
