Riot Jazz Brass Band is a 9-piece brass band made up of trumpets, trombones, a sousaphone, drums and an MC. They play a uniquely twisted mix of funk, soul, hip-hop and aggressive jazz.
The band has featured at festivals around the world over the past 5 years. Recent performances include West Holts Stage at Glastonbury, The Big Red Tent at Womad, Soundwave Festival (Croatia), Kendal Calling, London Jazz Festival, Manchester Jazz Festival as well as being invited to play on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and at Ted X talks in Salford.
The Riot Jazz Brass Band navigate a minefield of original peace-lovin' aggro jazz, hip hop samples, funked-up favourites and re-interpreted dubstep, drum'n'bass and dance floor bangers that never fail to send limbs flying!
The band released their much aniticpated second album entitled 'Incoming!' this Autumn. Check out thei website for tour dates.
