Formed in 2008 out of a desire to play music that appealed to the feet as much as to the ears, this group offers a unique take on the brass band. Featuring trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and marching percussion, this brass band are totally acoustic and yet able to blow the roof off any room and provide world class event entertainment. The band’s members have hugely diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from work with cutting edge jazz groups to the Royal Opera House, and from Jarvis Cocker to major international orchestras.
This breadth of musical talent is clearly on display in their eclectic repertoire. Mining nuggets of funk, hip-hop and high-octane rock from the musical coalface and throwing in a few chunks of Balkan brass, ska and contemporary jazz for good measure, the band’s setlist is diverse and is great event entertainment. Add the fact that the band stays true to its roots by bringing the tradition of mobile marching bands firmly into the 21st Century and you know that every gig’s sure to be unique.
