Act Profile

New York Brass 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 by James Lancaster, and quickly established itself as a dynamic, flexible band who can perform outside acoustically at a drinks reception or street event, 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 Jones McBusted, comedian Alex Brooker, Liam Gallagher, Joe Jordan, Gordon McQueen and Jamie Oliver.
In July 2016 the band was featured in the ITV show Surprise Weddings Caught On Camera.
