The Brassroots Brass Band Bash  jumps off at 6 pm with Brass Junkies.

Brass Junkies are a dynamic and versatile 8-piece brass band from Bristol, UK performing New Orleans style jazz, latin, pop and funk covers in the style of the finest American Street Bands.  Their diverse repertoire covers everything from Amy Winehouse and Stevie Wonder to Eurythmics and David Bowie.

At 7:20-8:20 Brasstermind will blow your mind.

Born in 2014, Brixton based 10 piece BRASSTERMIND follow in the footsteps of classic New Orleans brass bands. Brass reimaginings of everything from Fela Kuti to Nirvana, Radiohead to Cameo will have you throwing yourself round the dance floor in a brass induced frenzy

Bringing the funk at 8:40-9:40 is The Brass Funkeys

The Brass Funkeys draw from the traditions of New Orleans with skilled musicianship, rolling from spirited second line revelry to soulful jazz funeral marches and brass driven funk. Reggae, hip hop, gypsy, swing and Latin influences are exposed in an eclectic live show revealing a band bursting at the seams with ideas and infectious energy.

DJ Lil’ Koko: Spinning rare New Orleans 50’s RnB, funk and brass with a few detours into the sweaty Bayous of Louisiana, she tours London to bring the rich musical history of New Orleans to the masses. 

And last but certainly not least,  lighting it up at 10:00-11:30 yours ever so truly Brassroots

Brassroots has been blessing the brass band scene it helped to create for 8 years strong now. Growing, evolving always turning it up a few notches for the young bucks to have something to aspire to. Yes we know and yes we did.
