ROCHESTER, Minn. - The band, Loud Mouth Brass, is combining its love for music and biking to give back to the community. 

On Sunday, the band Loud Mouth Brass organized an eight mile bike ride from Little Thistle Brewing Company to Oronoco, ending with a 2 hour performance. 

During the ride and show, the band is taking donations for the Pata De Perro bike club. The organization gives kids free bikes after they volunteer a number of hours in the community.

From a being a form of exercise to a more eco-friendly way to get around, the band tells KIMT why they want to support the organization. 

"I think it's important for kids to learn about it early, and learn about how to maintain their bike. And it's just awesome to have an opportunity to get free bikes into the hands of kids that maybe wouldn't have them otherwise," John Sievers, the trombone player in the band, said. 

Loud Mouth Brass also hopes the bike ride and musical performance inspires kids to do whatever makes them happy. 

"Hopefully kids just take away the idea that this is something that's exciting to do and that's fun to do. And I hope they just do what they're interested in and pursue their passions when they see other people doing that," Sievers said. 

Depending on how Sunday's event goes, the band said this may just become an annual fundraiser for the bike club.
