Steven Bernstein's Universal Melody Brass Band

February 4. Hudson Valley locals will know trumpeter Steven Bernstein from his ebullient playing with Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble Band and his ongoing appearances at the late Band drummer's beloved Barn in Woodstock; downstaters should know him from his work with such famed New York outfits as Sex Mob, the Lounge Lizards, Spanish Fly, and the Millennial Territory Orchestra. For the occasion of MASS MoCA's annual Free Day—which offers free admission to its art galleries—Bernstein brings his multihorned Universal Melody Brass Band to the museum's Hunter Center for explorations of music by Sly and the Family Stone, Duke Ellington, The Band, Jelly Roll Morton, Allen Toussaint, and more. (So Percussion hits February 11; Sam Cohen sings February 24.) 8pm. $16 advance, $22 day of show ($10 students). North Adams, Massachusetts. (413) 662-2111
