Leeds Jazz Festival 2019: New York Brass Band Brig

Leeds Jazz Festival 2019: New York Brass Band Brig

Details

New York Brass Band are a contemporary New Orleans inspired brass band hailing from the ancient streets of York. The band has been burning up festivals including Glastonbury and in Rio where they teamed up with Favela Brass at Rio’s Carnival.

Including some of Yorkshire’s finest musicians, they pack an arsenal of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones and sousaphone with a varied repertoire at their fingertips without a note of music in sight. This is a band that works without gimmicks, auto tune or backing tracks, we blur the line between band and audience by inviting the crowd to become part of the show and ending the performance in the audience, dancing on the tables or congaing under the stars.

Their repertoire is a mixture of New Orleans jazz as well as throwing in some covers of classic tracks such as Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky,’ Pharrell’s ‘Happy,’ and the Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams.’

They will be starting off in Briggate in Leeds City Centre at 1pm and then making their way down to St Peters Square where they will be performing a set at the festival outdoor community bands stage (or indoors at the Wardrobe if wet!)
