New York Brass Band

New Orleans inspired Brass Band

New York Brass Band are North Yorkshire’s only contemporary New Orleans inspired Brass Band. Hailing from the ancient streets of York the band are at the forefront of a funky brass revolution that is sweeping the UK. Inspired by Rebirth Brass Band, Soul Rebels, Hot 8, Youngblood and Brassroots, NYBB pack a powerful punch of relentless drums, rumbling tuba and wailing horns… nothing kicks a party into gear like the sound of a smokin’ New Orleans Mardi Gras Jazz Band

New York Brass Band is a powerhouse 7-piece, with a line-up of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones and sousaphone. The band take its inspiration from contemporary New Orleans musicians, but have a repertoire that ranges from Marvin Gaye to George Michael, from Cee-Lo Green to Stevie Wonder, with some funky, gritty northern originals thrown in for good measure

The band was formed in November 2010, and quickly established itself as a dynamic, flexible band who can perform outside acoustically at a drinks reception or street events, conferences, product launches, or amplified on a festival stage or club. No gimmicks, no backing tracks, no auto tune, this is music that gets people dancing and a band who make the audience feel part of the show!

Performances include Glastonbury Festival 2014/15/16/17, Bestival on the Isle of Wight, Durham Brass Festival, Cork Jazz Festival, Le Tour de France, Monaco Grand Prix, all 7 summer cricket test matches and celebrity parties and weddings for Danny McBusted Jones, comedian Alex Brooker, Liam Gallagher, Joe Jordan, Gordon McQueen and Jamie Oliver.
