Hackney Colliery Band
Reinventing the brass band sound for the 21st century.
A tour de force of trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone, marching percussion and electronics, the band are as inspired by contemporary rock and electronica as they are New Orleans marching bands and the traditional British brass bands to which their name pays homage.
Formed in 2008 out of a desire to play music that appealed to the feet as much as to the ears, the band has rapidly gained an army of loyal supporters.Since the release of their eponymous debut in 2011, the 9-piece have blown their way into the public consciousness with their energetic and passionate live shows.
Combined with a relaxed stage presence and thoroughly British sense of humour, their live show is able to have extraordinarily broad appeal without dumbing down.
The running time is an approximate and can be subject to change.
