Hypnotic Brass Ensemble


Hypnotic Brass Ensemble image

Legendary live-act with an all-guns-blazing brass attack “trafficking in a free-flowing blend of jazz, hip-hop and Afrobeat, the group can resemble the world's funkiest marching band one minute, an unhinged New Orleans funeral procession the next” (Los Angeles Times).

These self styled “Bad Boys Of Jazz” are blood brothers from the south side of Chicago and have graced big stages across the world: from Coachella and WOMAD, to the The Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall.

They’ve played with Prince and Mos Def, Damon Albarn and the Wu-Tang Clan. Unmissable.
