Video: Carytown Trombone Takeover 

Something for the slice-of-life/things-that-make-Richmond-great file: A brass band made up of no less than 10 trombones appeared on Cary Street shortly after 9 on Friday night. As the group played the crowd around them grew, swelling into the street. Eventually police arrived, but they opted to shut down a lane of traffic rather than the show.

The band calls themselves the Brass Connection. They're local to the city and say they've played on the street in Carytown about five times so far this summer. They don't have a website, so if you like what you hear you'll just have to hope to run into them.
