The Brass Knuckle Brass Band are travelling up from Canberra to trade blows with Brisbane's own purveyors of New Orleans style brass bandism, Bullhorn. Support from The Mouldy Lovers. Set to be an awesome night of raw, brass, funk power.THE BRASS KNUCKLE BRASS BAND (ACT) is a New Orleans style street funk band from Canberra. The band has performed to great acclaim and significant booty-shaking at the 2011 and 2012 Summer Rhythm Festivals, 2011 and 2012 National Folk Festivals and most rooms in Canberra large enough to fit six horns and percussion. The group has also played successful shows in Sydney and Melbourne and has shared the stage with other awesome funk/soul outfits including His Merry Men and Clairy Browne and the Bangin’ Rackettes.BULLHORN (QLD) have been brassing up stages in Brisbane and surrounds since 2011. Introducing eager audiences to their modern take on brass... band, fusing contempory styles on a vintage instrumental canvas. This collection of musicians has been taken from the cream of Brisbane horn players with each musician boasting years of high profile performance experience. Their presence is formidable; eight people in all, armed with trumpets, trombones, saxophones, drums and the mighty sousaphone bringing up the rear. As BULLHORN starts to play audiences will experience huge rumbling sounds around them as they descend into a world of rich sonic textures created live, acoustic and real.Bubbling up from the crevices of West End, THE MOULDY LOVERS (QLD) came together quietly and brewed to a loud menagerie of exuberant gypsy junk. With their unbridled enthusiasm and transcontinental influences, The Mouldy Lovers make that subtropical gypsy sound that makes even the manliest men start to dance!
