New York Brass Band are North Yorkshire’s only contemporary New Orleans-inspired Brass Band. The band are at the forefront of the funky brass revolution that is sweeping the UK. The band was formed in November 2010 and quickly established itself as a dynamic and flexible band that can adapt to a number of different events and venues.
With rhythmic drums, a rumbling tuba, and wailing horns… nothing kicks a party into gear like the sound of a smokin’ New Orleans Mardi Gras Jazz Band. 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!
Their 7 member line-up includes percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones, and sousaphone. Inspired by the likes of Rebirth Brass Band, Soul Rebels, Hot 8, Youngblood, and Brassroots, New York Brass Band pack a powerful punch. And although the band take inspiration from contemporary New Orleans musicians, their repertoire ranges from Marvin Gaye to George Michael, with some funky, gritty northern originals thrown in for good measure.
They can perform acoustically at drinks receptions and street events, or amplified on a festival or club stage. Notable 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, and celebrity parties and weddings for the likes of Danny Jones McBusted, Alex Brooker, Liam Gallagher, Joe Jordan, Gordon McQueen, and Jamie Oliver.
