“I’ve had people come up to me after shows and tell me that they have never danced in public before, but they couldn’t help themselves at our show,” says saxophonist and bass clarinetist Daro Behroozi of Lucky Chops, an explosive NYC-based brass/woodwind/drums five-piece live juggernaut of a band.
Formed initially over 10 years ago as a group of New York City high school kids united by their love of music, their dynamic and infectious energy has already begun to translate to millions of fans around the world who have discovered the band through their wildly popular videos, a vibrant social media following or at one of their sold out headline shows or festival appearances across Europe, North and South America. From subways to tour buses, the music of the Lucky Chops has traveled to audiences of all backgrounds, carrying with it an infectious energy that inspires even the uninitiated to break out into song and dance.
Trombonist Josh Holcomb, sousaphonist Raphael Buyo, and saxophonist and bass clarinetist Daro Behroozi began playing together
as teenagers at the renowned LaGuardia High School of Music and Performing Arts in New York City where they were exposed to a wide range of musical sounds, playing and performance opportunities, and encouragement from teachers.
