THE BRASS FUNKEYS
Eight piece London band Brass Funkeys play their own unique fusion of bass driven funk, soulful jazz marches and galloping gypsy czárdas that have made them firm favourites. They often draw on the famous musical traditions of New Orleans and have done since first forming in 2011. Since then they have gone on to really establish themselves playing at huge festivals like Glastonbury, North Sea Jazz festival and Wilderness. Next to that they regularly play round London at top venues like Koko Camden, Ronnie Scott’s and The O2 Brooklyn Bowl. They can play a big, amplified show to a huge audience as well as more intimate gigs as a mobile marching band, but never fail to connect with the audience and make a lasting impression. Brass Funkeys bring together some of the most talented musicians in London. Each one makes their own vital and energetic contribution to the band overall resulting in an eclectic live show bursting at the seams with ideas and originality. Brass Funkeys have recently put out their well-received second album, Rabble Rouser, It was accompanied by a sold out show at Rich Mix plus 14 more dates around the UK that took them from Newcastle right down to Cornwall. The album brims with 13 tracks of original compositions all written by the band and featuring less obvious covers such as Gorillaz ‘Dirty Harry’ and Royce Wood Junior ‘Honeydripper’. As such the album truly makes out the band as right at the forefront of a new generation of UK brass bands. “Brass has not been this good since that time Reel Big Fish covered A-Ha” – Noisey @ Glastonbury 2017 “Hugely enjoyable!” **** allaboutjazz.com “Rabble Rouser” review
