The name ‘251’ was suggested by Seth Kwasi Klutse of Big Shot Band. 251 is a chordal movement or musical notes. 2 stands for chord II, 5 stands for chord V and 1 stands for chord I. In terms of note, 2 stands for ray, 5 stands soh and 1 stands for doh. The idea of the name is closely linked to harmony in music, hence the need to be united in whatever we pursue as human beings. The group comprises of the following musicians:
- ISAAC MARFO – 1ST TRUMPET
- EMMANUEL OHENE (BRASAG) – 2ND TRUMPET
- LARYEA TORTO – TROMBONE
- FELIX COBLAVIE – DOUBLE BASS
- J.K. NTUMY(LONG JOHN) – KEYBOARD
- ANYEE ANNAN – PERCUSSION
- FRANK KISSI – DRUM
In addition for major events and launches, we can provide a FULL ORCHESTRA of 30+ musicians making a major impact at the event. Contact us for details.
