Let the battle of the brass begin! Two of the UK’s most prominent party starters; Fiesta Bombarda and Global Local, host heavy-hitting horn bands from across the country as they compete to be crowned brass masters!
First to the stage will be the Leeds party-brass collective HYDE PARK BRASS. The nine-piece have developed a unique style as a raucous party band full of entertainment and carnival capers. Competing with them will be the brass licks, sax riffs, rap splits and hat hit of London’s own DAT BRASS, a high energy eight piece melding the funky melodies of hard-hitting brass with the hip-hop beats of live drums and rap.
Each band plays a full live set before THE BRASS OFF begins, after which they will go head to head, track to track and horn to horn, employing their meanest and dirtiest tricks, with the audience ultimately deciding the winner by cheering and roaring for their champion.
All cheers are being measured via a 'vibo-meter' which uses the latest technology to determine who is getting the loudest response from the crowd and therefore generating the most vibes!
The entertainment doesn't stop here as the legendary DJ Chris Tofu (MBE) and his partner in grooves, Count Bassy, will take to the decks to keep the party going between all that brasstastic action with a fine selection of Vintage Remix, Reggae Dnb, Balkan beats and more!
Buy tickets here. You'll be able to buy tickets on the door (as long as they aren't all sold out!)
