French Horn Rebellion @ MHOW – We always enjoy the groovy, marching band vibes of French Horn Rebellion, brought to us by Wisconsin brothers Robert and Dave Perlick-Molinari. These guys have the classical chops and can really get funky, so head to Music Hall of Williamsburg this Thursday to see what they’re all about.
