Loud Noises are a feisty fIve-piece brass outfit conceived on the streets of Leeds in 2016. This powerful combination of gutsy brass playing, daring repertoire and constant crowd interaction has already proven to get crowds moving. Loud Noises bridge the gap between contemporary brass music and high octane dance. Blurring the line between band and audience Loud Noises might be the most interactive and engaging band in Britain.

Loud Noises aim to push the boundaries of modern music by adapting their eclectic musical tastes into upbeat interactive performances. Taking inspiration from Too Many Zooz expect a twist on traditional jazz tunes ranging all the way up to Ghostbusters and the Back Street Boys. The new addition of a drum pad and various pedals allow the band to toy around more than ever before turning their small set up into an awe inspiring entity.

Loud Noises take to the streets at 20:30 to parade some of their absolute best tunes before their gig at 21:30. The gig is £5 OTD, and if you get to us before 20:30 to get your stamp then you won't have to queue to get back in! This is the last of our Big Brass Beats parades, so you won’t want to miss it. There’s something very special about following a brass band playing your favourite songs through the streets of the Northern Quarter!
