NEW YORK BRASS BAND OPEN MANCHESTER JAZZ FESTIVAL AT M&P'S!
Brass is part of Matt & Phreds Northern Roots and having a plethora of original bands with a focus on Brass, the club couldn’t resist going Brass Hard for this year’s Manchester Jazz Festival.
New York Brass band were one of the first contemporary Brass Bands to play at M&P's and we are over the moon NYBB are opening MJF at the club with a full-on 8-piece New Orleans inspired gig. These guys will certainly set the bar for the coming MJF gigs at the club!
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 8-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!
