New York Brass Band (NYBB) 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.
Nothing kicks a party into gear like the sound of a smokin’ New Orleans Mardi Gras jazz band and 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.
The powerhouse seven-piece, with a line-up of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones and sousaphone 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. If you’re looking for a unique, vibrant brass to hire for your wedding, corporate event or party, look no further!
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, all seven summer cricket test matches and celebrity parties and weddings for Danny McBusted Jones, comedian Alex Brooker, Liam Gallagher, Joe Jordan, Gordon McQueen and Jamie Oliver.
